BREAKING: White House Plans To Fire Tillerson, Replace Him With CIA’s Pompeo

The White House has a plan to fire Rex Tillerson as secretary of State and replace him with Mike Pompeo, the director of the CIA, within the next several weeks, according to The New York Times.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly developed the plan to replace Tillerson, the report said, which involves nominating Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, to replace Pompeo at the CIA. The report noted that it’s unclear whether President Trump has signed off on the plan yet.

This comes after a bitter few months between Tillerson and Mr. Trump in which the president has repeatedly undermined America’s chief diplomat. In October, Tillerson shot down a report that said he had been on the verge of resigning from his Cabinet position over the summer.
