Thanking Mr Tillerson for his service, Mr Trump tweeted that his new top diplomat would do "a fantastic job". The tensions peaked last fall amid reports Tillerson had called Trump a "moron" and considered resigning.
Trump specifically cited differences over the Iran deal Tuesday. The Washington Post first reported news of Tillerson's firing, shortly before the president's tweet.
Early in 2018, Trump said on Twitter that Mr Tillerson was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea.Tillerson had joined Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in pressing a sceptical Mr Trump to stick with the agreement with Iran and other world powers over Tehran's nuclear ambitions and he has taken a more hawkish view than Mr Trump on Russian Federation.
The reshuffle comes at a time of intense turnover within Trump's administration that has alarmed those both in and out of the White House.
Pompeo, a former Army officer who represented a Kansas district in Congress before Trump chose him to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, is seen as a Trump loyalist who has enjoyed a less hostile relationship with career spies than Tillerson had with career diplomats. Tillerson had long pushed Trump to remain in the agreement and had been pursuing a delicate strategy with European allies and others to try to improve or augment it to Trump's liking.
The most public moment of shame came when Trump did not even bother to consult him - or any of his cabinet colleagues for that matter - before deciding to engage North Korea and accept the invitation to meet Kim Jong-un.
"Pompeo has a sort of hard-line approach on foreign policy that's quite black and white, and that's also how Trump sees the world", Ilan Goldenberg, a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security who worked at the State Department under then-Secretary John Kerry, said in an interview in December.

"No one who had a hand in torturing individuals deserves to ever hold public office again, let alone lead an agency", Human Rights First's Raha Wala said on Tuesday. There were no obvious signs from his behavior or his aides on the plane that his departure was imminent. "I made that decision by myself".
Last week Tillerson said that an upcoming meeting between Trump and Kim would focus on "talks" rather than "negotiations".
CBS News reports that Tillerson was leaving his Africa trip early to return back to Washington to talk with Mr. Trump and connect on developments in North Korea, which he was largely left out of as the White House announced it would be taking up talks with the regime sometime in May.
