Rex Tillerson

President Trump in a tweet Tuesday morning confirmed that Rex Tillerson is out as Secretary of State.

In his tweet the president said that CIA Director Mike Pompeo will take Tillerson’s place.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that Trump asked Tillerson to step aside.
Trump “thought it was the right time for the transition with the upcoming North Korea talks and various trade negotiations,” a senior administration official said. “POTUS asked Tillerson to step aside on Friday.”

The development comes less than 24 hours after Tillerson rounded off his visit to five African countries, including Nigeria.
