Former Exxon Head Replaced as US Secretary of State

Public Policy

Former ExxonMobil Corp head Rex Tillerson is being replaced by Mike Pompeo, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, as the US Secretary of State, US President Donald Trump has revealed.



Trump gave no reason for the replacement in a statement on social media platform Twitter but said Pompeo would do a ‘fantastic job’ in his new role.

Back in December 2016, then president-elect Trump named Tillerson as his choice for US Secretary of State. The former Exxon CEO spent more than 40 years at the supermajor.

    A shallow minded egomaniac removes another adult from the room. I’m surprised he didn’t appoint Stormy as Director of sex education.

    At the rate resignations are pouring into the Trump administration coupled with many unfilled diplomatic posts, Stormy may be all that’s left!!!

    News like this from the white house, makes one almost want to think, that the current administration is in disarray. However Trump has always made the assertion that he is smart, very very smart indeed.

    I am sure Rexxon Drillerson will land on his feet. 40 years overseeing cancer operations at Rexxon-Mobil, and he lasts about 1 year as secretary of snake, lol. You know what would have been really funny? Trumpf should have offered Killary her old job back.

    The best thing one can say about Tillerson;
    He stuck to the job as long as he could to ‘save’ the Republic as he sees it.
    After his “fucking Moran” remark, he never had another chance .
    We can never forgive the millions XOM spent trying to sow doubt about AGW.

    To throw the planet under the bus to sell more shares in Exxon can never be excused.

    Just yesterday found myself behind a PU truck with tailgate sized sign: “LOCK HER UP”

    More interesting, I live on the Left Coast.

    Watch this. DJT becomes over-confident, overplays hand and says stuff that locks him up.

    John Bercow is a Jew. These people are a permanent fifth column.

    Rex said the Russians did a bad thing after the second targeted hit in london. Donald told him not to say the Russians were bad. He did -he’s gone. In less time than it takes to fly across the Atlantic. Next guy won’t make that mistake, once he finds out where the door to his new office is.
