Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson hopes President Donald Trump has some reassuring words for our allies around the world in the State of the Union address Tuesday night, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"They're friends and allies because they know they can count on us and we have always been able to count on them in times of conflict and in times of tragedy," Tillerson told an energy conference Tuesday, per the report. "Our adversaries do not have that."

The adversaries Tillerson was referring to are China and Russia, per the Chronicle.

But our allies, who might have felt left behind as the U.S. renegotiates trade with China and challenges the corruption in Ukraine, a chief border rival of Russia, might need some words from the president as he addresses Congress.

"I hope the president says something to reassure them," Tillerson said, per the report.

Tillerson is the former CEO of Exxon Mobil before he gave that post up to become Secretary of State. His tenure was a roller coaster, serving only about one year.
