Trump to Replace Tillerson with Pompeo as Secretary of State

President Trump has removed Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State, replacing him with Central Intelligence Agency head Mike Pompeo.

Trump last Friday asked Tillerson to step aside, and the embattled diplomat cut short his trip to Africa on Monday to return to Washington.

Trump publicly undercut Tillerson's diplomatic initiatives numerous times, including on Monday when the former secretary of state's comments about Russian Federation appeared to be at odds with those of the White House.

President Trump is pushing out Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replacing him with Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo. "Congratulations to all!" President Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. She will be the first woman to take that role. The President has not yet given any explanation for the change. He will do a fantastic job!

Tillerson navigated storms involving Trump's decision to cease implementing the Paris Climate Accord, escalating tensions with the North Korean regime, and questions over Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Finally, I want to thank Rex Tillerson for his service.
