During his brief stay at Foggy Bottom, Tillerson frequently found himself out of the loop and caught unawares by policy shifts announced in Trump tweets. Last October, he held a press conference at the State Department to describe the president as "smart" but never explicitly denied calling Trump "a moron" during a meeting at the Pentagon last summer.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Piskov said that Russian Federation is hoping for a "constructive" approach from the United States.

"The housekeeping side of the Senate operations have really been consuming all of our time, so we're just not getting to the legislating that people are really expecting", said Energy and Natural Resources Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), adding that Tillerson's exit is a "loss for the administration".

He said his tenure ends on March 31 but he would delegate his responsibilities to John Sullivan, deputy secretary of state, at the end of Tuesday.

Rex Tillerson is out as secretary of state. "If Ms. Haspel seeks to serve at the highest levels of U.S. intelligence, the government can no longer cover up disturbing facts from her past", he said.

Then Goldstein, hours after making those comments, was fired, too.

"For whatever reason, chemistry, whatever it is", Trump told reporters.

Tillerson also spoke with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Tillerson joined a long list of senior officials who have either resigned or been fired since Trump took office.

In Iran, the official Islamic Republic News Agency's website posted an unflattering photo of Pompeo, who has made clear he considers the Tehran government more of a threat than Tillerson did.

Michael Hayden, former National Security Agency director, told U.S. broadcaster NPR on Tuesday, "In all this turmoil, I actually think CIA is going to be a bit of a calm spot with Gina now being elevated to the director position".

A believer in regime change in North Korea, it is unlikely that Pompeo will endorse the summit that Trump announced last week. Trump contradicted Tillerson's efforts a day later.

National Football League free agent rumors: QB Case Keenum to sign with Broncos
His only two injured years came during his rookie and sophomore seasons back in 2010 and 2011 (10 and 11 games, respectively). He signed with the Houston Texans who at that time were coached by current Broncos senior advisor Gary Kubiak.

The firing comes as Trump prepares for delicate talks with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

"One of the key features for any negotiator is that they have to be able to credibly represent their leadership", Denmark, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for East Asia, told South Korea's Yonhap News. "Rex wasn't, as you know, in this country", Trump told reporters on Tuesday.

A year ago while at security conference Mr Pomepo referenced an extensive report by the CIA and affiliated agencies, saying: "The intelligence community's assessment is that the Russian meddling that took place did not affect the outcome of the election".

But the constant undercutting between the president and secretary of state wasn't doing much to project confidence either, she said.

"From a political point of view, it's a disastrous mistake", said Blessing.

Pompeo, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, has been one of Trump's most loyal Cabinet members and quickly formed a close bond with the president, coming personally to the White House most days to deliver the President's Daily Briefing.

After Haspel was named deputy Central Intelligence Agency director, the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights asked German prosecutors to issue a warrant for her arrest over her role in the interrogations.

"He will do a fantastic job!" "As I shared with the president, the committee will consider his nomination as expeditiously as possible".

Pompeo said he was "deeply grateful" to be nominated and looked "forward to guiding the world's finest diplomatic corps" if confirmed.

With Pompeo's encouragement, Trump is expected to re-open that agreement in May.

Kono told reporters Wednesday that he "regretted" that Tillerson was sacked as the two had established a trusting relationship. Regular White House leaks have hinted since a year ago about his looming departure until President Donald Trump pulled the trigger yesterday in a tweet as Tillerson was making his way back home from an African tour.

Either way, Trump's freewheeling style is set to sidetrack the Senate. "Did he fire him or have him put to sleep?" he asked.
