Trump ousts Tillerson, will replace him as secretary of state with CIA chief Pompeo

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 thought that Tillerson was ousted because he said this:

Tillerson says U.K. spy poisoning ‘clearly’ came from Russia

But that was only yesterday. Supposedly. I think either Tillerson knew he was out and felt a bit freer to speak or he spoke his mind and *45 had himself another temper tantrum.

So, are we all going to die?
