Is CIA Director Pompeo a good choice for Secretary of State?

Miller said Tillerson's swift departure leads US allies to believe in the "increasing likelihood that Trump pulls out of JCPOA". Trump, who has long criticised the nuclear deal, it out on Tuesday as one of the main areas in which he had differences with Tillerson.

While there's a high likelihood roadblocks for Iran will be created, Fesharaki says the probability of a collapse in the nuclear accord is about 20%. "Any nominee for director of the CIA must pledge without reservation to uphold this prohibition".

Men of different temperaments, demeanour and style had reached a parting of the ways.

With tariffs, he essentially signalled a trade war with a tweet, again with little of the policy or diplomatic consultations that would normally precede such a step. Paul told reporters on Capitol Hill. Describing Tillerson's mood, Goldstein said: "He's accepting". The questions over Kelly's future have even led some of the aides closest to him to probe possible jobs outside the administration, one Republican close to the White House said. Goldstein was the senior vice president of BP Global Solutions before serving in the State Department. "We're speaking with Theresa May today", Trump said.

This story will be updated with Sen. Speaking Tuesday, Trump cited the fact that Tillerson didn't want to tear up the Iran nuclear agreement.

That is why, rather than for the reason she perceives, Kamina Johnson Smith, Jamaica's foreign minister, may be right in her absence of concern for Mr Tillerson's ignominious firing this week.

Seoul and Washington continue to talk about the meeting between Trump and Kim, which is expected to follow a summit between the South Korean president and the North Korean leader.

But he added: "Much work remains to respond to the troubling behaviour and actions on the part of the Russian government". Rather than informing Comey in person or by phone, Trump sent his longtime bodyguard-turned-director of Oval Office operations Keith Schiller to the Justice Department to deliver a letter notifying the FBI head he was done.

The former ExxonMobil chief had a series of public rifts with the White House after being appointed last year.

The Republican senator Rand Paul said on Wednesday he would oppose Donald Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel for director of the CIA, accusing her of having shown "joyful glee" during the torture of terrorism suspects. Trump expressed confidence in his selection, tweeting that Pompeo will do a "fantastic job".

A Senate report on Haspel's program said that at one point, accused terrorist Abu Zubaydah was "completely unresponsive, with bubbles rising through his open, full mouth". Ask people to name his most significant accomplishment, and you'd likely be met with a blank stare. He also praised Trump, saying, "His leadership has made America safer". Staff Secretary Rob Porter was fired after allegations of domestic abuse.

The West Wing, in a 2003 episode Speaker of the House, Glen Walken, briefly assumed the presidency after President Bartlett was forced to recuse himself when his daughter was kidnapped.

"If the US quits the nuclear deal, we will also quit it", Araghchi said Wednesday.
