Trump Has Replaced Tillerson With Pompeo

Wochit - March 13, 2018

President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he would replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

The move could make the US more hawkish towards North Korea.

Tillerson was thought to be a voice that cautioned Trump against striking North Korea while Pompeo has come off consistently combative.

The most pressing North Korea issue is currently the upcoming May summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Now that Pompeo is secretary of state he will be advising the president more closely on North Korea..
