BREAKING: Tillerson fired as Secretary of State

Posted: Updated:
Rex Tillerson is out as Secretary of State. President Trump announced Tuesday morning that Tillerson will be replaced by Mike Pompeo, the current director of the CIA. Pompeo will be replaced by Gina Haspel, the first woman selected for that job.
Tillerson and the president have butted heads over the last year. There were reports previously that he was on his way out. Tillerson had just returned from a shortened trip to Africa hours before the president's announcement. A Tillerson aide says the secretary did not speak to the president about this, and still does not know a reason why he was fired, and that he had wanted to stay in the job.
