The President is up to crazy things again. His administration seems to constantly be changing. The breaking news came in this morning when he announced that he has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. He has replaced him with CIA chief Mike Pompeo. Senate will have to confirm him to get the job. Meanwhile, Gina Haspel, the deputy director of the CIA, will replace Pompeo if confirmed by the Senate, becoming the first female director of that agency. Of course, Tillerson and the President have been at odds and bumping heads since he became President.
Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2018
