The 'You're fired!' presidency — The Briefing

He pointedly failed to thank Mr Trump or praise his policies.

While the meeting didn't have many tangible results, it showcased the bond between Freeland and Tillerson.

Sure, it's easy to say, but we're better than that, from a shiny newsroom.

Tillerson was also thought to have made a major concession to China when he publicly repeated Beijing's rhetoric about the Sino-US relationship during his first trip to the country.

Whatever the reason, Mr. Pompeo tends to tread lightly on all matters Russia, hates the Iran deal with the same passion as Mr. Trump, and displays greater fealty to the loyalty-obsessed President than Mr. Tillerson did.

Mr Trump said: "I wish Rex a lot of good things".

"I find it just amazing that anyone would consider having this woman at the head of the CIA".

A key aim was to get the team in place prior to moving ahead with North Korea. "I've always, right from the beginning from day one, I've gotten along well with Mike Pompeo".

Paul added he would "do everything I can" to block them.

Trump has appointed State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert to serve as acting undersecretary of state for public diplomacy.

Rising through the ranks, she was picked last year to be deputy to CIA director Mike Pompeo, despite criticism of her history in "black sites". And domestic affairs. Not to mention the continued distraction of the Mueller investigation.

The White House fired Goldstein on Tuesday after he issued a statement contradicting its official version of the timing of Tillerson's dismissal, US media reported.

"Haspel has not been reprimanded since then", he says.

Tajik, a former Iranian ambassador to Jordan, said Tehran should invest more efforts in convincing Europe of the need for a shared stance against Trump and tilting it to Iran's side.

By projecting weakness to Pyongyang, Tillerson was undercutting Trump's message of strength - and thus making war more likely.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via Twitter. Federal prosecutors never issued the warrant because the case lacked a connection to Germany.

Senate Republicans said they expected both confirmation hearings to be held soon. Of course, you could discuss the merits of such choices with pundits on TV rather than doing her job.

The secretary of state landed back at Joint Base Andrews to have a member of staff inform him that the president had tweeted.

JOHN BERMAN, CNN: On the other hand, there is controversy in her past.

Those who work to advance reproductive health and LGBTQ equality had the opposite reaction.

Tillerson was fired on Tuesday morning, just hours after he came out strongly against Russia for what has been termed a brazen attack on foreign soil. The former Kansas congressman, a West Point and Harvard Law graduate, and Trump share a blunt communication style.

In 2014, he defended the CIA officers who waterboarded detainees as "patriots". Haspel also apparently had a role in the decision to destroy video evidence of these interrogations in 2005. Yet, Mr Trump is now planning to meet Mr Kim. It would be only a matter of time before he'd be shown the door.
