BREAKING: Rex Tillerson Is OUT!

There have been rumblings that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was on his way out, but I certainly wasn’t expecting that to happen today! But here we are. It’s happening, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo will be his replacement.

Whoa. This is wild. Apparently, he made this decision quickly because he wants a new team before his big meeting with North Korea.

In a statement released by the White House, Pompeo said: “I am deeply grateful to President Trump for permitting me to serve as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and for this opportunity to serve as secretary of state. His leadership has made America safer and I look forward to representing him and the American people to the rest of the world to further America’s prosperity.”

Trump said he is naming Gina Haspel the new director of the CIA. Haspel has served as Pompeo’s deputy and will become the first woman to serve as director.

“I am grateful to President Trump for the opportunity, and humbled by his confidence in me, to be nominated to be the next Director of the Central Intelligence Agency,” Haspel said in a statement.

We’ll continue to update you as this madness unfolds!
