President Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he has fired Rex Tillerson from his position as Secretary of State. The POTUS announced that Tillerson’s place will be taken by current CIA boss Mike Pompeo. And here’s the kicker: the position of CIA chief will be occupied for the first time in history by a woman, CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel respectively. A true woman hater and literally Hitler, Trump is:
Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!

WaPo announced Tillerson’s steep departure minutes before the POTUS’ tweet. However, there were obvious tension on various issues (Iran, climate change etc) between Trump and Tillerson since the latter took the job back in 2017. Rex Tillerson was asked to return to Washington on Friday and he was informed he will be fired by President Trump. Here’s Trump’s statement with regard to his new pick for Secretary of State:
“I am proud to nominate the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo, to be our new Secretary of State. Mike graduated first in his class at West Point, served with distinction in the U.S. Army, and graduated with Honors from Harvard Law School. He went on to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives with a proven record of working across the aisle. Finally, I want to thank Rex Tillerson for his service. A great deal has been accomplished over the last fourteen months, and I wish him and his family well.”
The POTUS added:
Gina Haspel, the Deputy Director of the CIA, will be nominated to replace Director Pompeo and she will be the CIA’s first-ever female director, a historic milestone.”
It seems like President Trump is cleaning house of globalists and their ilk. Remember this piece from a few days ago? Claim: President Trump To Be Cleaning House Soon: Jared, Ivanka, McMaster, Kelly All on Way Out!
The one-trick drive-by leftist media went completely bonkers following the news about Tillerson’s ousting:
Tillerson on Monday agrees with our greatest ally that use of a WMD in Britain was by Russia and that declares there will be consequences.
Then Trump fires him.
Sanctions remain unenforced, solely because Trump ignoring the law.

Tillerson says Russia "clearly" involved in poisoning of former Russian spy in UK.
Trump fires Tillerson. #JustSaying

Tillerson committed the 1 unpardonable sin in Trump world: telling the truth about Russia. Pompeo won’t make same mistake. Having him as Secretary is the next worst thing to having Nunes (his former House colleague and friend). Confirmation hearings should & will be explosive.

Trump's decision comes just hours after Tillerson broke with the White House to blame Russia for the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal in England https://t.co/6DTqTKFfYb

Obviously, Trump is doing the Russians’ bidding, as usual. It doesn’t matter that even the Washington Post reported that Tillerson knew he’s going to get fired last Friday, which means prior to his comment on Russia.
Trump last Friday asked Tillerson to step aside, and the embattled top diplomat cut short his trip to Africa on Monday to return to Washington https://t.co/KsGYdFzLlQ

The @washingtonpost suggests Tillerson was asked to leave on Friday – so he wasn't fired *because* of his Russian comments, but he did make them knowing he was out the door
