Secretary of State Tillerson speaks after being ousted

Rand Paul said Wednesday that he intends to oppose President Donald Trump's nominations of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and Gina Haspel as the next CIA director, complicating their confirmation process in the Senate where Republicans have a very slim majority.

"The transition will be absolutely seamless". In comparison, Trump fired only 32 people in the first two seasons of "The Apprentice", his former reality show. "We think she should stand trial to defend herself against the allegations that she was involved in torture and she shouldn't be appointed to any position", the head of the ECCHR's crime division told Al-Jazeera Tuesday.

But Radsan adds that those sessions were deemed legal by White House lawyers at the time, though that judgment was condemned by a wide array of critics.

Goldstein said Tillerson found out he was fired that morning in a tweet from the president; Goldstein himself was then fired after that statement conflicted with the White House's official line that Tillerson was notified by White House chief of staff John Kelly three days earlier in a late-night phone call.

"There's a lot of speculation", Shah said.

The administration has become better at managing the initially chaotic and sometimes vicious battles within it.

Paul does not serve on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which would vet Haspel, although Sen.

While there's a high likelihood roadblocks for Iran will be created, Fesharaki says the probability of a collapse in the nuclear accord is about 20%.

The top US diplomat's team said he felt unwell on Saturday and decided to cut short his tour by a day. But the President has not dropped the idea. Young declined speculation on whether Tillerson's firing is the Trump Administration's attempt to protect its relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Brennan predicted she would be confirmed.

While Iran has reaped massive economic benefits from the accord, notably by being able to resume oil exports, it is still constrained by US sanctions in other areas. Mr Tillerson, Mr Trump said, "had a different mindset". Europe should be preparing for potential counter measures to neutralize the impact of the U.S. abandoning the agreement. However, the evidence - including Pompeo's efforts to urge Trump to decertify the Iran deal - suggest the opposite. "There is no Chaos, only great energy!" "It would be very difficult to find a replacement".

"He's got to have somebody in there that he totally trusts", said a senior U.S. official. So, we appreciate our Government's optimism of an American diplomacy that appreciates the Caribbean's strategic neighbourliness.

"We're taking the real world actions that we think will make unmistakable to Kim Jong Un that we are intent on denuclearization", said Pompeo, who meets frequently with Trump as CIA chief. "Tillerson is a good man who was dealt a bad hand & he did not play it particularly well", tweeted Rep. Charlie Dent, a Pennsylvania Republican who is retiring at the end of this term.

"Trump looked over his first year, his Cabinet, what he wanted, what he had, and he wanted to reshape it, and he's unhesitant about going ahead and doing it ..." I guess he thought it was OK.

Mr Pompeo is a hardline conservative former lawmaker from Kansas and a Trump loyalist.
