President Trump has sacked his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.
Rex had just returned from an official state tour of five African nations this morning.
Rex Tillerson will be replaced by the CIA director, Mike Pompeo. In a tweet on today, Mr Trump thanked Mr Tillerson for “his service” as he put it. Reporters for US media outlets, including the Washington Post and CNN, say Mr Tillerson was actually fired on Friday – the day he visited Djibouti and Kenya.
He then cancelled some of his activities in Kenya the following day, saying he felt unwell.
On Monday, Mr Tillerson said he agreed with Britain’s assessment that Russia was likely to be responsible for the poisoning in Britain of a Russian double agent and that those involved must be punished.
But his words weren’t matched by the White House. Earlier Mr Trump and Mr Tillerson has several public disagreements, specifically over how to deal with North Korea.
In one instance, Mr Tillerson pointedly refused to deny calling his boss a moron.
