The world learned that President Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson by a tweet. In doing so, the president broke a cardinal break-up rule: When breaking up, do it in person, it’s the decent thing to do. 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!

The Campusa magazine got from a reliable source that Such President Trump’s move was geared towards rumors to meet the aggressive North Korea Soon. Although the White House is trying to spin just when Tillerson found out he was being let go, it’s clear his dumping didn’t come with a face-to-face,
“White House officials said that — as Tillerson traveled through Africa last week — White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly called to wake him up in the wee hours on Saturday to alert him that Trump had decided to replace him,” The Washington Post reported. “Trump had told his chief of staff he wanted to announce he was replacing Tillerson on Twitter. Kelly urged him to hold on.” But the plot thickens. “A top State Department spokesman offered a different version of events — and was swiftly fired for contradicting the White House,” The Post reported.
Turns out, Steve Goldstein, Undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, told the media that Tillerson was “unaware of the reason” for his firing and had not spoken directly with Trump.”Goldstein said that Kelly told Tillerson only to expect a presidential tweet. At that point it was not clear his fate was a firing. It appears Tillerson found out he was terminated when the rest of the world did. Tillerson said he received a call from Trump around noon today, from Air
Force one, more than three hours after WaPo alert and Trump tweet announcing his firing.
Firing has been rampant in the world politics as of lately evidenced in Uganda when H.E. President fired the country’s IGP and minister of security replacing them immediately with Okoth Ochola and Gen.E.Tumwine respectively.
