24 Hours After Visiting Nigeria, Trump Fires US Secretary Of State


In less than 24 hours after visiting Nigeria, the President of United States of America, Donald Trump has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.


Donald Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson – with no explanation given to the outgoing top diplomat – the latest indicator of a White House in chaos as high-profile officials continue to exit the administration with little or no forewarning.

The change comes at a delicate time for US diplomacy, with the president having just accepted an invitation to hold face-to-face talks with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, about the nuclear threat posed by Pyongyang. There are suggestions that Mr. Trump wanted to make the change before the North Korea talks, but it is unusual for such a big change to be made at such a key time.

He is so being replaced immediately with CIA Director, Mike Pompeo. Trump has also said Gina Haspel will become new CIA Director.
