Normally the Trump Administration tosses people out on a Friday. That wasn’t the case for Rex Tillerson as the Secretary of State was fired. He’s likely to be replaced by current CIA director Mike Pompeo.
Tillerson’s ouster comes amid delicate negotiations with North Korea, according to the Washington Post who broke the story. Trump last Friday asked Tillerson to step away from the position. If Pompeo is confirmed as the new Secretary of State, current deputy director Gina Haspel will succeed him, becoming the first woman to be the head of the spy agency.
