Tillerson Looks Ahead After Being Fired

State Tillerson arrives at a joint news conference at the White House in Washington

While some White House insiders claim Mr Pompeo tends to tell Mr Trump what he wants to hear, others say they have been impressed by his intellect, willingness to listen and advocacy of more robust covert operations.

In a private room in China's Great Hall of the People in November, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sat with President Donald Trump and other US officials as their hosts delivered plates of wilted Caesar salad.

Mr Trump publicly undercut Mr Tillerson's diplomatic initiatives numerous times and Mr Tillerson appeared out of the loop this month when Mr Trump announced plans to meet with North Korea's Kim.

The president's decision comes as his administration is preparing for high-stakes and historic talks between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"I am deeply grateful to President Trump for permitting me to serve as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency and for this opportunity to serve as Secretary of State". Tillerson was reportedly not given specific advance notice of his termination, and he said that he received a call from the president around noon, three hours after the tweet.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is delivering remarks after being fired by a early morning Trump tweet Tuesday. "My commission as secretary of state will terminate at midnight March 31".

The secretary had met with the president of Chad on Monday, which was among the countries listed on the president's travel ban. The 54-year-old former congressman from Kansas has grown close to Mr Trump by delivering the president's daily intelligence briefing nearly every day since taking office in January 2017. The Associated Press reported that one of Tillerson's top aides was also fired Tuesday after he differed with the White House's timeline on the secretary of state's termination.

Mr Tillerson also won few plaudits from career diplomats for his performance at the State Department.

He said however that Rex would be "much happier now" outside the State Department.

"I think it means that the likelihood of withdrawing from the agreement goes up, if you don't change the sunset clause and deal with some other deficiencies", Sen. "He will do a fantastic job!"

"I felt like, look, I just need to get back", Tillerson said. Shortly after issuing the statement, Goldstein was sacked. Tillerson did not dispute reports that he called the president a "moron", leaving that responsibility to State Department Heather Nauert, who maintained Tillerson "does not use that type of language". And, you know, I wish Rex a lot of good things. "It was a policy decision and I think it's important that everyone recognize the United States has a terrific record on reducing our own greenhouse gas emissions", Mr Tillerson said at the time.

As Trump imposes tariffs, alienates allies, and talks about not wanting to admit people to the U.S. from "shithole countries", Tillerson dwelled on the need for cooperation and diplomacy.

Tillerson had been widely criticized for an aloof management style, which had alienated droves of career diplomats and driven numerous agency's senior brass into early retirements.

Lawmakers noted that it's uncertain whether Haspel or Pompeo can muster the 60 votes necessary for their Senate confirmations.

Trump in response dismissed Tillerson and replaced him with Gina Haspel.

Mr Trump contradicted Tillerson's efforts a day later.
