Rex Tillerson Out as Trump's Secretary of State, Replaced by Mike Pompeo

Rex Tillerson Out as Trump's Secretary of State, Replaced by Mike Pompeo | 13 March 2018 | President Trump on Tuesday ousted his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, extending a shake-up of his administration, 14 months into his tumultuous presidency, and potentially transforming the nation's economic and foreign policy. Mr. Trump announced he would replace Mr. Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director and former Tea Party congressman, who forged a close relationship with the president and is viewed as being more in sync with Mr. Trump's America First credo. "We were not really thinking the same," Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House, explaining his decision to replace Mr. Tillerson.
