Trump and Tillerson's biggest policy disagreements

Posted March 14, 2018

Pompeo would bring a number of assets to his new role as the top U.S. diplomat - Trump's confidence, government experience and an insider's knowledge of Congress and the federal bureaucracy - if confirmed by the U.S. Senate to replace Rex Tillerson, supporters say.

As for Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO whom Trump picked as his administration's top Cabinet official, the president said simply, "we disagreed on things".

There were conflicting messages from the White House and the State Department about the timeline of the firing on Tuesday, with the White House insisting that Tillerson had been told of the move last Friday.

He was repeatedly forced to deny he had fallen out with Trump - vowing to remain in the post despite a sensational report that he once dubbed the president a "moron".

He states, "Mike Pompeo, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will become our new Secretary of State". "When Mike is over in, say, the Koreas or over dealing with Russian Federation or the Middle East, I think people are going to know that he speaks for the president". "At the same time, I think Mike appreciates this president taking a different approach, really shaking up the situation, and perhaps providing an opening where we can get some different results than we have over the past 25 years".

"I know Mike Pompeo from our time serving in the House of Representatives together and wish him the best of luck in this new and important role", Poliquin said.

Former U.S. Ambassador Laura Kennedy said Trump's firing of Tillerson is not a surprise, but will likely mean the State Department's career staff could be even more excluded from preparing for a Kim-Trump meeting.

"The incoming foreign secretary is well known to Australia".

As emailed to reporters, his statement clearly read: "The Secretary had every intention of staying because of the critical progress made in national security". Hours later, he was sacked, too.

One of Pompeo's biggest challenges would be gaining the trust of a State Department shaken by the departures of many senior diplomats and embittered by proposed budget cuts.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland had developed a strong working relationship with Tillerson.

Tillerson was an early advocate for US participation in talks with North Korea, though not at such a high level. After hours of bureaucratic tug-of-war, Tillerson, in his final somber turn before the cameras, said he would be delegating his responsibilities to deputy secretary John Sullivan at the end of the workday and would resign effective at the end of the month.

The President clarified his decisions in an official statement.

Ms Bishop said Australia had been "working particularly hard to ensure that we have deep connections within the White House administration".

Tillerson had a close relationship with Defense Secretary James Mattis.

"Pompeo may be more effective at running State than his predecessor, but he is not prepared to manage the regional or global policy coordination needed to help the summit with Kim succeed", he said.
