Jared Kushner Pushing for Rex Tillerson's Ouster after Ivanka Snub

Jared Kushner Pushing for Rex Tillerson's Ouster after Ivanka Snub”

In early October, shortly after Tillerson said diplomatic options were still on the table in dealing with North Korea's nuclear program, Trump tweeted that the secretary of state is "wasting his time" trying to talk to Pyongyang.

Kelle Louaillier, president of Corporate Accountability International, said that while ousting Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil, might otherwise be a positive step, having Pompeo in charge of the U.S. State Department would be nothing to celebrate.

"Perfect" is widely reported to be behind some of the most egregious mistakes of Trump's presidency so far, including the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and Trump's decision to back the doomed Alabama primary candidacy of Sen.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders wasn't giving any long term guarantees on Tillerson either. "When the president loses confidence in someone, they will no longer serve in the capacity that they're in", she said.

Foreign leaders haven't always been sure whether Tillerson was speaking for Trump, who reportedly derided his secretary of state as being too "establishment" in his thinking. Arkansas law also mandates that the appointee is not allowed to run for that same seat in the following election.

 

"This is pure speculation", said White House spokesman Raj Shah in an emailed statement about potential staff moves. Take the podium one day and say, "Look, the truth is that my boss has a weird relationship with the truth, no real priorities other than expressing contempt for all of you, and no matter what, I'm gonna say that he's doing a good job, okay?" Mika Brzezinski also joined the fray, asking guest Heidi Pryzbyla about the connotations of White House staffers allowing Trump to dabble in conspiracy theories.
