no messing about...no wasted actions
"President Trump has ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and plans
to nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him as the nations
top diplomat, orchestrating a major change to his national security
team amid delicate outreach such as possible talks with North Korea,
White House officials said Tuesday.
The reason for the latest rift was unclear, but Trump and Tillerson
have often appeared at odds over policies such as the nuclear deal
with Iran and the tone of U.S. diplomacy. A spokesman for Tillerson
said the secretary of state had every intention of staying in his
job and was unaware of the reason for his firing."
