US President Donald Trump today opened a new crisis in his turbulent cabinet. A few days after accepting by surprise meet face to face with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-UN, Republican president dismissed his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, and announced his replacement by director of CIA, Falcon Mike Pompeo. "Mike Pompeo, director of CLA, will be our new secretary of state. He'll do a fantastic job. Thanks to Rex Tillerson for your service! Gina Haspel will be new director of CIA, and first woman to reach this position. Congratulations to her! "The American president has written in a tweet.
The jolt, one more in one of most turbulent cabinets in history of United States, crystallizes a distance that was already well known. Tillerson, a former Exxon executive, had crashed since first few weeks with Trump. Thoughtful and accustomed to long-term agreements, his management was pulverized by Trump style. His tuis and his eagerness to assume at every step diplomatic command deepened this distance.
Mike Pompeo, Director of CLA, 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 new Director of CIA, and first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2018
