Career diplomats at the State Department told the Washington Post on Thursday in addition to not having met their boss, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, they were also told "not to speak to him directly – or even make eye contact."

The report continued: "Most of his interactions are with an insular circle of political aides who are new to the State Department. Many career diplomats say they still have not met him, and some have been instructed not to speak to him directly — or even make eye contact."

The article noted career State Department workers "swap paranoid stories about Tillerson that often turn out to be untrue," so it remained unclear how accurate these accusations were. However, during Tillerson’s first three foreign trips, he apparently did not meet the State Department employees and their families, which is something secretaries of state have done in the past, the Post reported.

Tillerson made deals "behind closed doors" with no more than two aides by his side when he was the ExxonMobil chief executive, the Post reported.

His new employees were apparently not too fond of his ways.

Tillerson's "distant management style has created growing bewilderment among foreign officials" and "threatens to undermine the power and reach of the State Department," the report said.

Here's how  some Twitter users are reacting to the report:

Earlier this month, Tillerson told the Independent Journal Review that he "didn't want this job." The Texas native also claimed he is "not a big media press access person," which may be why he did not want many reporters to travel with him. "I personally don't need it," he told reporter Erin McPike.

In fact, he said, his wife was the one who convinced him to take the role. 

"I was going to go to the ranch to be with my grandkids," he said.
