Trump Fires Tillerson As Secretary Of State

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

The one constant in the Trump administration is change. Today President Trump abruptly fired Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State:

Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA and the first woman chosen. Congratulations to all!

Mr. Tillerson’s future as Secretary of State has been in doubt for months. You could probably say that about everyone of President Trump’s cabinet members. The White House recently announced plans to negotiate with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to stop his nuclear weapons program. Trump appeared to be the point person in the negotiations, sidestepping Tillerson. That may have been a clue that Tillerson’s job was either irrelevant or in jeopardy.
