With more than 100 positions within the State Department unfilled, a one-time vocal critic of President Donald Trump is essentially running foreign policy, The Daily Caller reported.

Director of Policy Planning Brian Hook is in the powerful role of shaping the U.S. foreign policy for a president whom he spoke out against during election season.

All because there are 112 open positions that require Senate confirmation in the State Department.

Hook, a former official in President George W. Bush's administration, ran an anti-Trump movement and was a vocal critic of Trump's, the Daily Caller reported.

"Even if you say you support (Trump) as the nominee, you go down the list of his positions and you see you disagree on every one," Hook, who has a strong conservative record, told Politico last year.

Now Hook, along with Chief of Staff Margaret Peterlin, is someone who Secretary of State Rex Tillerson leans on for important decisions happening at the agency.
