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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2018
My source says that it isn't true that Tillerson learned of his firing via tweet. He was told when he was in Africa. Never the right fit for @realDonaldTrump.— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) March 13, 2018
From Comey to Tillerson or even Reince and Spicer ... has @realDonaldTrump, who popularized the phrase "you're fired" (written for him by The Apprentice producers) actually PERSONALLY fired anyone from his administration, man to man, rather than by tweet or through a bag man?— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) March 13, 2018
As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I watched Secretary of State Tillerson get his credibility shredded because @realDonaldTrump routinely undercut him. There is no evidence this will change under Mike Pompeo (if he gets confirmed). Real problem is @POTUS. https://t.co/xOgnz02jzx— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) March 13, 2018
It doesn't matter who's running @realDonaldTrump's State Department. The problems start at the top. And unless we show up in November to vote, Trump's damage could absolutely last a generation.https://t.co/z2NJs3XgQi— Randy Bryce (@IronStache) March 13, 2018
Tillerson said he received a call from @realDonaldTrump around Noon today from Air Force One, more than three hours after his firing was announced on Twitter.— Jeff Zeleny (@jeffzeleny) March 13, 2018
If it is not that Buhari has chronic bad luck how is it that within 12 hours of seeing him in Abuja, Rex Tillerson, the American Sec. of State,was removed from office by @realDonaldTrump and replaced with George Pompeio of the CIA?Congrats George!My advice?Steer clear of Buhari!— Femi Fani-Kayode (@realFFK) March 13, 2018
Rex Tillerson was Secretary of State for 14 months.— Harlan Z. Hill (@Harlan) March 13, 2018
In gov, that might seem like a very short tenure. In business, it is not.
President @realDonaldTrump practices rapid iteration. If something doesn’t work, he makes a change.
I wish all of gov operated this way.#MAGA 🇺🇸
CIA Director Mike Pompeo has no business in public office. His anti-Muslim/anti-immigrant worldview runs counter to everything America should stand for and will only add fuel to @realDonaldTrump’s white supremacist agenda. https://t.co/V5U6YzojeO— National Immigration Law Center (@NILC_org) March 13, 2018
Just Breaking: Saudi Prince boasted Jared Kushner is in "in his pocket!". Supposedly, Jared passed top SECRET information about who opposes the Prince. He also is boasting he (Prince) got Tillerson FIRED. @IvankaTrump @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/H5qHcUsYZa— Mary (@lovealaska1105) March 22, 2018
