On Tuesday it was announced that President Donald Trump has fired Rex Tillerson from his position as Secretary of State, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo will be replacing Tillerson. 

President Trump stated on twitter that Mike Pompeo will do a great job, and thanked Tillerson for his service:

“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!”

It is circulating that President Trump fired Tillerson because they had disagreements on how to handle North Korea and the Iran nuclear deal, and Trump needed someone who shared his strong beliefs.

According to Washington Examiner

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!

 

“His experience in the military, Congress, and as leader of the CIA have prepared him well for his new role and I urge his swift confirmation,” President Trump said in a statement about Pompeo.
