Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani formally withdrew from consideration for a post in President-elect Donald Trump's administration Friday, putting an end to his ill-fated bid to lead the State Department. Trump is now seriously considering Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for the post.
The former mayor said he removed himself from consideration on Nov. 29.
"The whole thing was becoming kind of very confusing and very difficult for the president-elect," Giuliani said on Fox News. "My desire to be in the Cabinet was great, but not that great."

Massive crowds returned to Seoul's streets on Saturday, a day after lawmakers passed an impeachment motion against disgraced President Park Geun-hye, which stripped her of her presidential duties and pushed Prime Minster Hwang Kyo-ahn into the role as government caretaker until the court rules on Park's fate.
The impeachment came after millions of people demonstrated for weeks demanding the removal of Park, who state prosecutors accuse of colluding with a longtime friend to extort money and favors from South Korea's biggest companies and to give that confidante extraordinary sway over government decisions.
Park has apologized for putting trust into her friend, Choi Soon-sil, but has denied any legal wrongdoing.
On his so-called “victory tour,” President-elect Donald Trump has been repeating some inaccurate talking points that we’ve flagged before. So, as we did during the campaign, we’ll highlight these repeats in our “Groundhog Friday” feature.
Donald Trump at a rally on Friday said African-American voters who didn't show up to the polls felt good about him.
"The African-American community was great to us," Trump said. "They came through big league."
He added: "If they had any doubt, they didn't vote. And that was almost as good. Because a lot of people didn't show up, because they felt good about me."
Trump made the comments at the fourth stop on his "Thank You" tour, meant ostensibly to thank the millions of voters that delivered him a resounding White House win last month.

Ford Motor Co. is going ahead with plans to move small-car production from the U.S. to Mexico despite President-elect Donald Trump's recent threats to impose tariffs on companies that move work abroad.
CEO Mark Fields said Ford's plan to move production of the Ford Focus from Michigan to Mexico will proceed, in part because U.S. consumers demand low prices for small cars. The Focus starts at $16,775, which is less than half the average price that U.S. consumers pay for new vehicles.

A former Santa impersonator who made headlines after ruining a young boy's holiday outing has been hospitalized for a blood clot in his lung. In the midst of controvery and illness, the old Saint Nick has been bolstered by the support of his community.
Earl Crowder, a man from Forest City, North Carolina, who has played Santa for nearly a decade at his local Santa House, has been hospitalized days after leaving his post as everyone’s favorite holiday legend. Crowder resigned when nine-year-old Anthony Mayse accused the former Nicholas of fat-shaming him. Mayse said that Crowder told him to “lay off the hamburgers and French fries” on his way out of the photo-op at the Santa House.
After a day filled with ice skating and other wintertime treats, Santa was supposed to be the grand finale for Mayse and his family’s fun weekend. Instead, the boy cried himself to sleep because he was teased about his size.
Soon after the incident, Crowder apologized to his supervisors and the Mayse family. On Wednesday morning, he experienced shortness of breath and was taken to the hospital.
