Breaking: He’s Gone. Trump Just Named His Replacement


Rex Tillerson is out at the State Department.

President Trump recalled Tillerson to Washington on Friday to let him know his services would no longer be required.

On Tuesday, Trump announced, via Twitter, that our new Secretary of State will be CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Said the president:

“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 so chosen. Congratulations to all!”

The Daily Caller noted:

Tillerson’s ouster was reported minutes before Trump’s tweet by the Washington Post, though tensions between the two have simmered nearly since Tillerson took the job in 2017. The Secretary of State was reportedly asked Friday to return to Washington and informed he would be let go by Trump.
