White House 'has plan to replace Tillerson'

White House
The White House is discussing plans to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA chief Mike Pompeo, US media say.

Mr Tillerson has been at odds with Mr Trump over foreign policy recently.

The secretary of state was even reported to have privately described the president as a "moron".
They have differed in their approach to North Korea's missile testing and Iran's nuclear programme, among other issues.


  1. The White House has developed a plan to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson within weeks, a senior Trump administration official has said...

    Mr Tillerson would be replaced with Mike Pompeo, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

    Under the plan, Republican Senator Tom Cotton would be tapped to replace Mr Pompeo at the CIA, the New York Times reported, citing senior officials.

    The Times, the first to report the plan, said it was not immediately clear whether President Donald Trump had given final approval to the shakeup.

    Mr Tillerson's departure would end a troubled tenure for the former Exxon Mobile chief executive, who has found himself increasingly at odds with Mr Trump over policy challenges, such as North Korea and under fire for his planned cuts at the State Department.

    White House Chief of Staff John Kelly developed the transition plan and has discussed it with other officials, the Times reported.

    Under his plan, the staff reshuffle would happen around the end of the year or shortly afterward......

  2. US-Außenminister Rex Tillerson soll einem Medienbericht zufolge abgelöst werden...

    An seine Stelle solle in den kommenden Wochen CIA-Direktor Mike Pompeo rücken, berichtete die New York Times am Donnerstag unter Berufung auf hochrangige Regierungsvertreter. Der Zeitung zufolge war zunächst nicht klar, ob US-Präsident Donald Trump die Umbildung in seiner Administration schon letztgültig beschlossen bzw. verfügt hat. Auch die Nachrichtenagentur Reuters konnte zunächst keine Bestätigung für den "NYT"-Bericht erhalten.
