BREAKING:....Tillerson out as Secretary of State
« on: March 13, 2018, 08:46:53 AM »
From Trump's twitter:

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!

Trump ousts Tillerson, will replace him as secretary of state with CIA chief Pompeo
Washington Post, Mar 13, 2018

President Trump has ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replaced him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, orchestrating a major change to his national security team amid delicate negotiations with North Korea, White House officials said Tuesday.

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

Pompeo will replace him at the State Department, and Gina Hapsel — the deputy director at the CIA — will succeed him at the CIA, becoming the first woman to run the spy agency, if confirmed.

I'm surprised at the choice of Pompeo as a replacement.  I figured Haley's work as UN Ambassador would have put her in position to succeed Tillerson.

Gonna be interesting to see how this affects the SecDef's relationship with the WH.

Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen.

The president - who has long clashed will Tillerson, who he believes is "too establishment" in his thinking - felt it was important to make the change now, as he prepares for talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as well as upcoming trade negotiations, three White House officials said.

Considering he wasn't told about the NK announcement prior to its release this is no surprise.

While a catchy slogan worthy of only the best social media groupies.  Tillerson has an outstanding background having been the CEO of Exxon. 

So yeah in this case he is far more qualified then the last several.

Oye ... watch the Democrats block his nomination.  Doubly troubling with the possible NK meeting on the horizon.

Tillerson was in Africa last Friday when he got word he had been fired.  He says he doesn't know why he was fired.  It was not Trump who told him he was fired.

President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was escorted out of the White House on Monday, two senior administration officials said. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

It sounds like the Swamp is draining Trump.

Wow. Great loss there.....

McEntee wasn’t as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Trump’s side for the past three years. He made sure Trump had markers to sign autographs, delivered messages to him in the White House residence and, over the weekend, ensured that the clocks in the White House residence were adjusted for daylight-saving time.

Sounds like the way Comey was fired.  Makes a trip far from DC, finds out secondhand.  They all serve at the pleasure of the president, but it doesn't have to be such a dick move.

Yup, I would not be surprised to learn he resigned over the objections of the administration. No way
he could continue as SoS after that humiliation.

My guess is that it was Kelly who informed him.
