US Diplomats Reportedly Told Not to Retweet Ousted Aide on Tillerson's Firing

He'll be replaced by the hard-line CIA director Mike Pompeo, who is likely to reinforce Trump's most aggressive attitudes toward the rest of the world.

"When you look at the Iran deal: I think it's terrible, I guess he thinks it was OK".

The nomination has drawn a firestorm of protest, with dissenters, including Glenn Greenwald and Edward Snowden, noting she ran a CIA "black site" and alleging she was involved in torture.

Wilhelm II, who 14 year later began the World War I, and Trump do seem to share certain qualities, including petulance and a strong narcissistic streak. "I've always, right from the beginning from day one, I've gotten along well with Mike Pompeo".

Paul pledged to "do everything I can to block" both nominees.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins, who also serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Pompeo's tenure at the CIA helped prepare the former Republican congressman from California for the challenges he will face at the State Department if he is confirmed.

Pompeo has shown no indication that those tough stances, whether accurate or not, will change if he becomes secretary of state.

While Trump thanked Tillerson "for his service", he was sparing in his praise of the 65-year-old former Exxon chief, long rumored to be on the way out.

Trump has said that he would reintroduce waterboarding and "a lot worse", but there's no indication that his decision to pick Haspel signals a desire to restart the harsh interrogation and detention program.

Yet supporters of engagement with Iran shouldn't give up hope.

A White House official said Trump wanted to have a new team in place ahead of upcoming talks with North Korea and various trade talks. "Kelley then suggested Tillerson return to Washington as soon as possible". It might be a regarded as stunning bad manners that Trump did not put in a call to Tillerson on his flight back from Africa before making the public announcement.

At the very least, Pompeo's appointment will provide a unified front on Trump's foreign policy message. Even Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, a Democrat who led the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation into the CIA interrogation program, suggested that she is willing to consider Haspel's nomination.

The US and foreign dignitaries in Lausanne April 2, 2015 during the Iran nuclear negotiations. Here's a prediction: The president will not be condemning Russia. So he ordered Mr. Tillerson to start. What about Tehran's continued practice of taking American citizens hostage? "There is no Chaos, only great energy!" Think Nixon goes to China Part II.

In a prepared statement issued Tuesday, Sullivan said that he believes Tillerson did "an admirable job as the nation's lead diplomat", and touched on the importance that Tillerson gave to Arctic and energy matters.

The career of a one-time giant of corporate America had come to an ignominious end.

Seoul and Washington continue to talk about the meeting between Trump and Kim, which is expected to follow a summit between the South Korean president and the North Korean leader.
