Trump's clear message in firing Rex Tillerson

Tillerson was not in harmony with Trump's foreign policies and his presence was rather strange within the team especially that Trump is leading deep transformations in foreign policy, such as his recent intentions to meet with th president of North Korea to end the historical problem with it. That includes Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, who was accused of misusing taxpayer money on a trip to Europe, or Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, who apparently purchased (then canceled) a dining set that cost $31,000 for his work office. As the officials filed out, Tillerson shook their hands one by one and handed them a secretary of state coin.

China had issues with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson but the country would likely prefer him to CIA Director Mike Pompeo. In fact, I was very hard leaning on him about the job of the CIA director is not policy. He'll talk more with the press corps and State employees, both hungry for contact after the taciturn Tillerson.

The fulcrum in foreign policy has been Mattis and Tillerson. The Middle Kingdom is every bit as much a strategic threat as Russia, if not more so. Stent said that while it's unlikely the U.S. would levy new sanctions on Russia over an incident on British soil, "you would still expect solidarity" from Washington. Perhaps the only thing, aside from his proven ability to make money on behalf of his employers, that might have endeared the former CEO of Exxon to the president is his longstanding use of a bizarre alias - "Wayne Tracker" - to conduct business correspondence. He dispensed with the usual ritual testimonial to a president who has treated him so poorly, instead thanking his colleagues at the State Department and the Pentagon.

Sullivan praised Tillerson and the State Department in general (Sullivan formerly served in the department) and said he looks forward to meeting with Mike Pompeo, whom Trump has named to replace Tillerson. In his public appearances, Pompeo has been feisty and even combative in supporting the administration.

Japan "would want a secretary of state to be influential to the president", said Yasushi Watanabe, a professor and American studies expert at Keio University.

A better man than Tillerson would not have lasted longer.

This was one of the key differences Trump cited in explaining Tillerson's dismissal.

MARTIN: You supported Rex Tillerson's nomination as secretary of state, saying at the time that he would serve as what you described as a critical moderating influence. Tillerson resented appearing subservient to the 37-year-old, who had no foreign-policy experience. The Defense Department has issued significant national strategic documents (National Defense Strategy, National Military Strategy), and is about to launch new ones (e.g. missile defense).

He openly contradicted the administration on a number of issues, including North Korea and Russia, and was reportedly " getting increasingly angry over the Trump crackdown on China ".

The timing of the announcement also came as a surprise to White House aides, even those who had been informed days earlier of the imminent shake-up, two sources familiar with the plans said.

Paul is the first Republican to come out against the nominations, which Trump announced on Tuesday.

Editor's note: Timothy Stanley is a historian and columnist for Britain's Daily Telegraph. The two also struck different tones publicly on an early diplomatic crisis the administration faced when Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries sought to isolate Qatar. The Republican-led Congress followed up with its own torture ban in a 2015 law. The president's tweet was a carefully staged, maximally evocative gesture of theatrical cruelty. This is a tough one.
