White House planning to oust Tillerson

White House discussing plan to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, officials say

By JILL COLVIN and JOSH LEDERMAN
Associated Press
PUBLISHED: November 30, 2017 at 9:49 am


WASHINGTON — The White House is discussing a plan to oust Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replace him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a major shake-up of President Donald Trump’s national security team, two administration officials said Thursday.

The move would put Pompeo, a former congressman who has grown close to Trump during his tenure atop the CIA, in charge of U.S. diplomacy. Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO, has had a rough first year characterized by tensions with Trump in several foreign policy areas and negative publicity over Tillerson’s envisioned overhaul of the State Department.

U.S. officials and other individuals familiar with White House thinking said the plan that’s been floated envisions Sen. Tom Cotton as the most likely candidate to take over Pompeo’s job at CIA. Cotton’s office wouldn’t comment on that possibility, other than to say: “Senator Cotton’s focus is on serving Arkansans in the Senate.”

It wasn’t clear how quickly such a plan might be put in place, nor whether Pompeo had been formally approached about it. A White House official said that the timing remains unclear. The New York Times, which first reported the potential shake-up, said it would likely happen within several weeks.

Several administration officials said that Pompeo has said in the past that he’s open to taking the job.

Tillerson aides and the State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The White House started telling people in September that Tillerson would be replaced, said a senior administration official. By that point, some issues that needed sign-off from the secretary of state were being put off until after Tillerson was gone, said the official, who like others wasn’t authorized to comment publicly and demanded anonymity.

I had mixed feelings about him before, until I found out he was behind the corporate push on Boy Scout's allowing gays and is now pushing some left-wing genderless program in Africa.

Tho' I think a hawk like Pompeo as his replacement is worse.

Tillerson always seemed a little out of step with the President.

Trump seems to be lining his team up for his showdown with NK and Tillerson seemed to be all about talk talk talk when we're getting to the point where it needs to be either solution or action.

Pompeo will be better accepted by the State Dept. according to chatter. Apparently Tillerson was cutting too much and the people didn't like it

It needed to be cut....and we need more elsewhere too. We certainly don't need 17 Intel agencies. It's most pork and waste for what they deliver.

Why?
Because he snubbed Ivanka on his trip to India.

Really, I thought those two were on their way out of the WH. Rex calls them the "Royal Family."



So it was Kushner who pushed for another Establishment politician ( with corrupt ties). I think it's high time that Javanka go.

Now he's gone. Have at it.

Pompeo won't be much better like I said before:
Quote:
Trump is replacing someone who wasn’t very good at diplomacy with someone who doesn’t want the U.S. to engage in it. Pompeo has been a vocal opponent of the nuclear deal from the beginning. We should assume that he will tell the president to scrap it, and since that is what Trump already wants to do we should expect that the U.S. will renege on its commitments later this year....

The Trump administration is becoming visibly more hawkish with these changes, and that bodes ill for the coming year.

This is NOT what I voted for and not what Trump ran on despite his criticism of the Iran deal. Not what many voted for either if you look at polls over these non-stop military interventions.

Maybe Trump got in office and realized he needed to take our national security more seriously.
