In an abrupt ouster Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired Tuesday via a presidential tweet. The firing should come as no surprise, since reports of their disagreement on the 2015 disastrous Iran nuclear deal entered into by Barack Obama, have been an obstacle in their relationship.
Globalist Obama submitted the deal — which included more than $100 billion, including $1.8 billion in cash — to the United Nations prior to sending it to congress.
President Trump issued this unequivocal statement early this year.
Coupled with the firing of Tillerson, President Trump announced his intention to nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo, a former Kansas Congressman, to replace the former Exxon CEO.
Pompeo has called the Iran deal “disastrous.” Tillerson had pushed Trump to remain in the agreement.
CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel, has been named to take over for Pompeo at the intelligence agency. If confirmed, Haspel would be the CIA’s first female director.
