Told Tillerson of Trump's firing decision beforehand: White House

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson waves goodbye

"To this day, I think that a healthy ideological diversity prevails in the White House, but what has changed is that he is no longer willing to allow people to slow roll or stonewall his agenda", said Andrew Surabian, a former White House strategist under Trump. Like the queen in Snow White, Trump is only interested in sycophants who will bow and scrape to curry favor with the world's most prominent narcissist in modern history. As the officials filed out, Tillerson shook their hands one by one and handed them a secretary of state coin.

Pompeo was also praised for his work with private-sector entities to harness world-class ideas and technologies, deploy more CIA officers to the field "where the enemy is operating", and strengthen information-sharing among government components on counterintelligence. And the question is, what was her part in that decision?

"We hope that this personnel change will at the least not have any effect on the development of Sino-US bilateral relations or Sino-US cooperation in some important areas", foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters at a regular press briefing. He urged European nations to convince the U.S. not to leave, according to the Iranian Students' News Agency. I'm sure - and she's been endorsed by people that have worked with her for 30 years in the CIA.

Rex Tillerson, the outgoing secretary of state, arrives at the State Department to make a statement after his dismissal on March 13.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (R) walks by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi last year.

Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter remain in critical condition, while a police officer who responded to the scene is in serious but stable condition. His department has seen turmoil in the political ranks and he was reprimanded for using taxpayer dollars to pay for his wife's trip to Europe. Therefore, if the United States fails to achieve some tangible results in denuclearization talks before the summer at the latest, we can hardly rule out the possibility of the Trump administration taking a military option against the North, not to mention tightening sanctions.

The former US special representative for North Korea policy, Joseph Yun, retired two weeks ago and has yet to be replaced. Feinstein chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee when it produced a massive 2014 report describing the CIA's harsh detention and interrogation programs. "I think Mike Pompeo will be a truly great Secretary of State". Paul also announced that he'd oppose Trump's selection to succeed Pompeo, current CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel, who, if confirmed, would become the first woman to head the spy agency. Haspel also apparently had a role in the decision to destroy video evidence of these interrogations in 2005.

And there may be a change at the Veterans Administration. None of the earlier Democratic supporters have indicated how they might vote this time, on a top diplomatic post that differs greatly from the CIA job.
