Donald Trump is silencing those who might restrain him — Editorial Exchange

Most important, he gets along with President Donald Trump and has become a favorite visitor at the White House.

But, with Tillerson gone, Sullivan will not be able to devote all of his time to the North Korean dossier; he is acting secretary of state until Pompeo can be confirmed by the Senate, not before April. Pompeo is also, unlike Tillerson, not afraid of the press. It was no coincidence that ISIS paraded its prisoners in front of cameras wearing orange jumpsuits before beheading them. Even when the entire US-UK intelligence establishment believes that Putin is exporting terror, and is doing so brazenly, precisely to divide the Western alliance against him. Haspel has a dark past with the agency, stretching back to her management of a CIA "black site" prison.

It looks like the US will be toughening its stance on the Iranian Regime and its many problems, including the nuclear programme, support of terrorism, and human rights abuses.

The US president asked Mr Tillerson to step aside after months of speculation that the pair had fallen out.

U.S. Senator Jack Reed said he has serious concerns about Trump's selection of CIA head Mike Pompeo to take Tillerson's place, and of Gina Haspel to fill Pompeo's job at the CIA. "He earned a zero percent rating on the HRC's congressional scorecard for votes on LGBTQ-related matters during the 112th and 114th Congresses, and a meager 30% during the 113th Congress". Oren cited as examples of this posture former Secretaries of State John Kerry, Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright.

"The State Department requires a very erudite, soft-spoken, very wise presence, a very charismatic presence".

"People in the prosecution of their duties inside government take on a great burden", said Danielle Pletka of the conservative American Enterprise Institute. No longer, he suggests, should the U.S. deal only with the other signatories of the Iran deal, officially the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), but should expand discussions to include Iran's neighbors.

"He understood the importance of that role and he argued for the US to play that role".

The US leader last week accepted an invitation to meet Mr Kim face to face by May, in a surprising turn of events following a year of tensions heightened by the North's nuclear and missile tests. What is your level of confidence in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III?

Our nation's top diplomat has been so mostly in name alone.

Paul did not vote to confirm Pompeo as CIA director last year. As a man of the House, he understands the role of oversight.

The CIA will not permit me to talk about Haspel's time overseas. Tillerson was at best uninterested in and at worst dismissive of a key part of the diplomatic toolkit.

In the UAE on Wednesday, the English-language Khaleej Times borrowed from the U.S. president's show-biz days for its headline: "YOU'RE FIRED!". Tillerson just did not know the message would be "clean out your desk". Will you allow him to continue as a foreign emissary, despite those conflicts and the loss of his top-secret clearance? In his January 2018 State of the Union address, he was more direct, calling on lawmakers to "address the fundamental flaws in the terrible Iran nuclear deal". For that reason alone, he'll be missed. A normal foreign policy is impossible with an erratic, ignorant, undisciplined and pro-Putin president.

Diplomacy is useful in order for countries to advance foreign policy, using trade inducement/tariffs/embargoes in order to reward a country for favorable behavior or cajole them to change direction, sell military hardware, and/or form alliances.
