Russia Says Relations With US Can't Get Worse Post Tillerson

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Tuesday

With the abrupt departure of Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, the expected to pursue an even harder line on issues such as the situation in North Korea and trade policy.

Before he lifted off the South Lawn of the White House for his trip to California, Trump said, "We're getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want".

Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul will try to stop the Senate confirmation of President Trump's nominees for secretary of state and CIA director.

Trump's decision to replace Tillerson comes as the State Department has been hobbled by top-level vacancies and the administration is preparing for high-stakes talks between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

He was repeatedly forced to deny he had fallen out with Trump - vowing to remain in his post despite a sensational report that he once dubbed the president a "moron". "Russia must assess carefully as to how their actions are in the best interests of the Russian people and the world more broadly", he said.

Trump is undoing all that, and in doing so is reinforcing the negative prejudices and stereotypes that have for so long coloured the perception of the African continent abroad. Pompeo was known as a defense hawk even during his time in Congress, and is likely open to the possibility of military intervention.

Senate Democrats - and some top Republicans - are slow-walking the process amid fresh questions over the Trump administration's stance toward Russia and revived inquiries into the CIA's dark history of torture.

An expert on Chinese foreign policy told Business Insider that Tillerson is "better" than Pompeo who is considered to be "hawkish." .

The revolving door at the White House may not be done revolving. Of course, if the Democrats unite in opposition many of them will be displaying some hypocrisy on the matter.

From the first, Tillerson and Trump were the oddest of pairings. The department announced on Wednesday that Hook would travel to Vienna to participate in a meeting on Friday on the Iran nuclear deal.

John Radsan was the CIA's assistant general counsel from 2002 to 2004 - the same years Haspel was apparently running the CIA "black site" in Thailand, where terror suspects were brought and held, and sometimes tortured under interrogation.

A CIA spokesman said the agency was aware of Paul's statement and had no immediate comment.

"Mike Pompeo, director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State". "He has downplayed Russia's attack on our democracy, at times contradicting the intelligence community he is supposed to lead".

Rogers worked alongside Pompeo in the House when Pompeo represented the Fourth District of Kansas. The veteran oil executive never grasped some of the essentials of diplomacy, including the importance of public communication. "The relationship has been very good", he said.

Pompeo considers Russia's involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election insignificant, saying that Russia has been interfering in various U.S. elections for decades.
