This was just a matter of time….
ex-Sec of State Rex Tillerson was reluctant to even take the job as Sec of State in the first place….He told some his wife told him he HAD to take the job….
Tillerson was just back from Africa when he got fired,he reportily was not notified of his bosses plan to meet the North Korean leader…
Former lawmaker Mike Pompeo moves from the CIA to the State Department….
PomPeo has spend a good amount of time speaking to Trump on the daily National Security briefing….
One thing to watch?
Pompeo has NOT been like Tillerson at State…
He has generally supported his departments work and employee’s….
Tillerson has not…
Instead, he has generally ignored his departments day to day missions….
It remains to be seen in Pompeo, who will need Senate confirmation, that will be given quickly will change the way American Foreign Policy is handed….
Tillerson was absent on that after spending his first few months going around trying to explain the acts of a President who was clueless….
United States UN Amb. Healy was NOT moved to the Sec of State job as many thought would happen….Trump has appointed Gina Haspel to become the new CIA Director..The First women to be appointed to the position…
President Trump announced on Tuesday that Mike Pompeo, now the C.I.A. director, will become secretary of state, replacing Rex W. Tillerson, ending his short but tumultuous tenure as the nation’s chief diplomat. Mr. Tillerson found himself repeatedly at odds with Mr. Trump on a variety of key foreign policy issues.
The president announced his decision via Twitter.
A senior administration official said that Mr. Trump made the decision to replace Mr. Tillerson now to have a new team in place before upcoming talks with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader he plans to meet by May, and for various ongoing trade negotiations.
Mr. Trump said he will replace Mr. Pompeo with the deputy C.I.A. director, Gina Haspel, making her the first woman to head the spy agency. Both she and Mr. Pompeo would need confirmation by the Senate to take the positions.
Mr. Tillerson has been out of favor with Mr. Trump for months but had resisted being pushed out and vowed to remain on the job. But his distance from Mr. Trump’s inner circle was clear last week when the president accepted an invitation to meet with Mr. Kim, to the surprise of Mr. Tillerson, who was traveling in Africa at the time….
Rex Tillerson DID call his thin skinned boss a ‘fucking moron’….
