Reactions As Trump Sacks Tillerson Over Unending Quarrels

US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. "Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State," Trump wrote in a tweet, adding: "Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!"

What happened:
Tillerson cut a diplomatic trip to five African countries short by one night and returned to the US early Tuesday morning.

A senior White House official told Reuters news agency on the condition of anonymity that Trump had asked Tillerson to step down on Friday.
Four hours after Tillerson arrived back in the US, Trump published the announcement on Twitter that Tillerson would be replaced.

Trump later told reporters outside the White House he and Tillerson had disagreed on policy and been "talking about this for a long time." One main area of disagreement was over the Iran nuclear deal, which Tillerson has supported.
White House officials said Trump wanted to switch up his team in preparation for talks with North Korea.

What were the reactions?
Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein wrote in a tweet that Tillerson "did not speak to the President" on Tuesday morning and was "unaware of the reason" for his firing. Goldstein was fired hours later.

Rex Tillerson's troubled year: Tillerson, a 65-year-old former CEO and chairman of energy giant ExxonMobil, was sworn in as secretary of state shortly after Trump's inauguration in mid-January 2017.

Rumors had circulated in October that Trump and Tillerson had fallen out after Tillerson had reportedly called Trump a "moron." Tillerson never denied making the statement. The president also publically contradicted Tillerson at multiple points during his time in office, including on Iran, climate change, North Korea and moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Trump did to Tillerson exactly what Buhari did to Babachir Lawal

Endy Edeson

You are right agile. Babachir wasn't aware of his suspension just like tillerson

Oluwatoyin Obanla

A bigot and neophyte president,is that one a president??????????

Endy Edeson

Obanla; It's really a huge surprise. He shouldn't have sacked him just when he finished his African trip

Anita Okonkwo

You are fired Tillerson

Jeremiah Ademolu

Disagreed between Trump n Rex but why d sacked after his visit to Nigeria

Olufemi Adekunle Rotty

If youve been following development,the sack came delayed,Tillerson wasnt expecting anything better,you dont criticize a govt you are part of openly and expect to retain your job,you swim together or sink together you might also as well swim alone,but you dont swim tied to a more weighty sinking log.
