A Tillerson spokesman said the secretary of state found out about his ouster after Trumptweeted about it Tuesday morning, although the White House insisted that Tillerson was made aware that his days were numbered on Friday.
But that's only one example of the many differences between Tillerson's State Department and Trump's White House.
But when Trump fired Tillerson Tuesday, that was also evidence the president was too weak on Russian Federation.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says he hopes Pompeo will "turn over a new leaf" as secretary of state and toughen policies toward Russian Federation and Vladimir Putin.
At a time when Trump has repeatedly threatened to rip up or nullify the deal, Rainater lamented how Pompeo's "extreme policy views threaten to gut USA diplomatic capacity further by making war the go-to option rather a last resort".
Tillerson's Under Secretary of State, Steve Goldstein, was also fired on Tuesday for contradicting the White House account of Trump's firing of Tillerson, saying the secretary of State was caught flat-footed by the announcement.
Tillerson and Trump have butted heads in the past, most notably when reports of Tillerson describing Trump as "a moron" broke in October.
White House says Trump still wants gun change
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, has said the President wants to expedite the court process, not circumvent it. "To no one's surprise, the president's words of support for stronger gun safety laws proved to be hollow", said Sen.
"It's all very Trumpian", said James Carafano of the conservative Heritage Foundation, who helped staff the State Department as a member of Trump's transition team.
Trump reportedly had considered firing Tillerson for months.
"Tillerson's replacement by. Pompeo, who is known as a political partisan and an opponent of the Iran agreement, raises the prospect of the collapse of that deal, and increases the possibility that the administration might soon face not one, but two nuclear crises", he said.
Tillerson's sacking comes shortly after Trump, without consulting his top diplomat, made a decision to accept an invitation to talks with North Korea's Kim Jong-Un on resolving the Korean nuclear stand-off. "Really, it was a different mind-set, a different thinking".
Pompeo had only been Central Intelligence Agency director since January 2017.
The President did not personally call Tillerson, and Goldstein said he did not know how the chief diplomat learned he had been fired.
Australia's embassy in Washington will contact the State Department to find an appropriate time for Ms Bishop to make contact with Mr Pompeo, ahead of his position being confirmed in April.
Meyers also expressed sympathy for Tillerson like when "someone gets attacked by a gorilla at the zoo" and how his first thought is "that's frightful", but that his second thought is "why did you go in the f**king gorilla cage?"
It's within the purview, you are appointed by the administration and you are appointed for the time being. More recently, reports indicated that Tillerson was shocked to hear about Trump's planned meetings with North Korea.
Press secretary Sarah Sanders defended the jibe and denied any rift, insisting Trump "made a joke, nothing more than that". It was long rumored that this was in the works because of continual disagreements between Tillerson and the White House.
