The rumors have been swirling for months…Rex Tillerson has been on the job in the Trump administration for about one year. He’s hit some rough patches in the road along the way and has bumped heads with President Trump. Remember when it was reported that Tillerson called POTUS a “moron”? Not a shining moment sooo….
We’re not surprised that Tillerson is being forced out and replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo in 2018. The best part of this move is that Senator Tom Cotton will replace Pompeo as the CIA Director. Cotton is as solid as a rock with his record on The Hill. All of these changes are positive and more in line with the Trump administration’s policy objectives on putting America first.

The move will come in the next several weeks, The New York Times reported, citing senior administration officials.


Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) would then replace Pompeo as CIA chief, the Times reported, according to the White House’s plan.


Multiple reports in the past have cited tensions between Trump and Tillerson.Earlier this year, Tillerson denied an NBC News report that top Trump administration officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, had urged him not to step down from the State Department.

“The vice president has never had to persuade me to remain as secretary of State because I have never considered leaving,” Tillerson said.

Tillerson at the time refused to directly address the report that he referred to Trump as a “moron,” saying that he would not “deal with petty stuff like that.”
