"He will do a fantastic job!"
"He dived into policy matters in a way that unnerved many professionals at the agency", the official added, "and morale was taking a blow that was spreading from the analytical side, where some people feared he was tailoring some PDBs (President's Daily Briefs) to tell Trump what he wanted to hear rather than what the intelligence assessments were".
"We got along actually quite well, but we disagreed on things".
Pompeo, like Trump, has a tougher approach to Iran, leaving some experts to believe the United States may soon end the deal while others think it's all rhetoric. "So we were not thinking the same". But in his farewell remarks, Mr Tillerson suggested that the prospect of talks with Mr Kim Jong Un was made possible by the hard work of his State Department and allies.
Hours after President Trump announced his firing over Twitter, outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday left the former real estate entrepreneur off the list of people he praised and thanked in a brief speech about his accomplishments and the future of his department. A senior Trump aide told reporters that White House chief of staff John Kelly telephoned Tillerson, who was traveling in Africa, on Friday to tell him he would be replaced.
"President Trump sought to break with the foreign policy mistakes of the last two administrations".
The State Department released a statement from Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein, saying Tillerson "did not speak to the president and is unaware of the reason" for his dismissal. In fact, most of Israel's top military analysts now say it is only matter of time before further violence, probably on a much larger scale, develops between Israel and Iran.
Told Rex Tillerson of Trump's firing decision beforehand: White House
Tillerson is said to have enjoyed his job. "Continuing on their current trajectory is likely to lead to greater isolation on their part, a situation that is not in anyone's interest". Tillerson broke with Trump in his belief that the administration shouldn't walk away from the agreement, and Hook's job in recent weeks has been chiefly to come up with revisions that keep the U.S. in the deal while also pleasing the president.
"This is going to reopen wounds from a decade and more ago, and also invite more oversight of both our analyses and our activities, especially if Gina is confirmed", said one USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Sec. of State Rex Tillerson has been panned as "at or near the bottom of the list of secretaries of state, not just in the post-Second World War world but in the record of USA secretaries of state", according to Paul Musgrave, a scholar of U.S. foreign policy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Royce said that Tillerson's successor will face many serious challenges ahead.
Tillerson was thought to have made a major concession to China when he publicly repeated Beijing's rhetoric about the Sino-US relationship during his first trip to the country.
Trump announced Tillerson's departure in a tweet on March 13, saying he would be replaced by Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo, who takes a tougher stance against Iran than Tillerson. "Both South Korea and the USA shared the view that maintaining strong cooperation is. necessary despite the personnel reshuffle in the U.S., as there are important pending issues between the two countries", the South Korean Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
In his role at the CIA, Pompeo gave daily briefings to Trump. "I want to make sure we broaden the conversation". Ron Wyden of OR, a Democrat and member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused Pompeo of being insufficiently tough on Russian Federation and said he'd "demonstrated a casual relationship to truth and principle".
"Russia will cooperate with all those appointed to this or another post in the Trump administration".
