The White House is planning to remove Rex Tillerson from his role as secretary of state and replace him with Mike Pompeo, the current Central Intelligence Agency director.
The State Department says White House chief of staff John Kelly is disputing reports of a plan to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Now, instead of having a former fossil fuel CEO at the helm of foreign policy, the United States will have an Islamophobic Koch Brothers shill-who built his own business using Koch money and owes his political career first and foremost to their deep pockets.
Asked on Thursday if he wanted Tillerson to stay, Trump sidestepped the question saying: "He's here". And the plan is not just being considered at the staff level, but by the President himself, the source said. The favored candidate to replace Tillerson is current CIA Director Mike Pompeo, which would leave a vacancy at the CIA.
"It may be February, it may be March, it may be April, but I think once you get to that time period, people are going to feel as though they've kind of put their time in", said one person with close ties to the White House. Vanity Fair separately reported that Pompeo could replace Tillerson as early as January. A few weeks later, Tillerson voiced his support for the president after a report claimed that he had called Trump a "moron" after a meeting on Afghanistan.

The White House insists no change is imminent. "Perfect" is widely reported to be behind some of the most egregious mistakes of Trump's presidency so far, including the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and Trump's decision to back the doomed Alabama primary candidacy of Sen. Mr Trump publicly criticised Mr Tillerson during the secretary's trip to Asia for "wasting his time" by attempting to hold a diplomatic conversation with North Korea. Trump has never been one to favor diplomacy either, despite his talk of making deals, and while it makes some sense that he would want a top diplomat who is similarly averse to talking, it's also clearly risky.
That's according to two administration officials.
"If the president undercuts what he is trying to achieve diplomatically, convinces people that whatever you agree to with the secretary of state will be overturned by the president ... then he is basically neutered", said Richard Boucher, a former top USA diplomat who now teaches at Brown University.
