Rex Tillerson out as Secretary of State, CIA chief Pompeo gets nod

President Trump announced that Rex Tillerson will be succeeded by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

After months of disputes with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Trump removed him Tuesday and nominated CIA Director Mike Pompeo to head the State Department.

Trump told reporters he made the decision himself, citing disagreements with Tillerson that included North Korea diplomacy, steel and aluminum tariffs, and the Iran nuclear agreement.

"I think Rex will be much happier now," Trump said.

 Trump said in a written statement that, at the State Department, Pompeo "will continue our program of restoring America's standing in the world, strengthening our alliances, confronting our adversaries, and seeking the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."

Speaking later with reporters before his departure on a trip to California, Trump said he got along with Tillerson, but they disagreed on things. Trump cited the Iran nuclear deal in particular: "I think it's terrible, he thinks it's okay." He also complimented Tillerson for "his commitment and his service, and I wish him well. He's a good man."

A State Department official sent out a terse reaction to the sudden news.

Presidents Trump’s decisions were really crazy, I don’t understand how a person like him can rule the so called biggest country in the world. A pay to write my essay writing service also wrote an article about his thoughtless decisions. I think he must not involve in financial and defense sectors and he should hand over them to senior potential staff.
