Trump: CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace Tillerson as Secretary of State

2018/03/13 | 18:05

(Iraq Now News)- According to White House press secretary speaker Sarah Sanders, the US President had asked Tillerson to resign from his position as Secretary of State.

“[Trump] thought it was the right time for the transition with the upcoming North Korea talks and various trade negotiations,” a senior administration official was quoted as saying by CNN.

The official added that Trump had asked Tillerson “to step aside” on Friday.

Tillerson’s relationship with Trump was hindered after the former Secretary of State called the US President a “moron.”

The US President told reporters at the White House that he “got along quite well” with Tillerson although he admitted they “disagreed on things.”

“When you look at the Iran [nuclear] deal, I think it’s terrible.

I guess he thought it was okay,” Trump said.

“I wanted to either break it or do something, and he felt a little bit differently, so we were not really thinking the same.”

Tillerson’s sacking comes at a crucial time for the Trump administration as they prepare to meet with North Korean officials over their nuclear program at the end of May.
