Russian Federation doubts United States nominee to replace Tillerson will take softer approach: RIA

Seth Meyers: Trump should have fired DeVos before Tillerson

As Donald Trump prepares to make a historic gamble by meeting North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, the USA diplomatic corps is in disarray after the president's brutal sacking of his secretary of state.

Aubrey Hruby: First of all, this administration has been plagued by departures. "On the other hand, Secretary Tillerson was a counterweight to some of the instantaneous, spontaneous, instinctive decisions that the president was prone to make".

Also from the Times: "As the White House absorbed the news about Mr. Tillerson, rumors swirled that the national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, and the secretary of Veterans Affairs, David J. Shulkin, would soon follow him out the door".

The top government spokesman made the remarks during a news conference after Trump dismissed Tillerson on Tuesday due to divisions over policy, including on Iran and North Korea. There's a good chance Pompeo will cater to Trump's whims on Iran, North Korea, and Russia-and that will hardly be a step up.

A high-level Indian delegation led by Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale and Defense Secretary G Mohan Kumar were scheduled to be in United States for a series of preparatory meetings with their American counterparts for the next month's dialogue.

As Trump prepared to depart for California yesterday he responded, "We got along, actually, quite well but we disagreed on things". Lindsey Graham, an establishment Republican and initial Tillerson backer, said Tuesday, after Trump announced via tweet that Pompeo would replace Tillerson.

"I didn't like the way Rex Tillerson was sacked", Dent revealed. I thought that was very deplorable and unfortunate the way it happened.

This appointment came just after he agreed to talks with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. It is furthermore said that he was supposed to strengthen economic ties between the USA and Africa.

Pompeo, on his way from the Central Intelligence Agency to State, is no figurehead.

Cohn represented more conventional free-trade thinking.

"Tillerson was never part of Trump's core strategy team". "That is really what's going to be the big issue".

Ninety senior positions at State either had no nominee, were waiting to be submitted to the Senate for consideration, or were pending confirmation as of Tuesday.

Pompeo said his goal as America's spymaster was to create a culture that says: "If you are in a process and you're not adding value, get out of the way". What I can say is that the White House and Congress have been focused on a narrative of, "How does the U.S. compete with China in African markets?" So that does touch the African market.

While Iran has reaped massive economic benefits from the accord, notably by being able to resume oil exports, it is still constrained by U.S. sanctions in other areas. Tillerson's last day at the State Department is March 31. For instance, the secretary of state dutifully fulfilled his presidential mandate to destroy the very institution he was appointed to run.

It is worth remembering that Trump has been facing some rebellion in his administration. So if he fills those roles then we will have a better sense of the direction of Africa policy.

This has been a concern a lot of people have had about this administration.

The nuclear deal was agreed by the U.S. administration of Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, as well as Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation.
