Trump's new Secretary of State has received most money from Koch Industries

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson answers questions during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington DC

Donald Trump on Tuesday sacked his top diplomat Rex Tillerson and named current Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo to succeed him, ending a rocky tenure by the Texas oilman who had frequently been at odds with the mercurial U.S. president. Missing from the audience during Trump's announcement, Tillerson was reportedly against the move.

Thanking Tillerson for his service on Twitter Tuesday, Trump said the new secretary would do "a fantastic job". Despite a controversial past, her rise is not surprising - she previously served as CIA deputy director and led worldwide undercover spying operations, a CIA mission that has gained renewed importance in recent years.Haspel, 61, joined the spy agency in 1985 and served as chief of station in several posts around the world.

Trump sacked Tillerson when he had barely touched down in the USA after his tour of Africa, in which he pledged US support for nations, such as Nigeria and Chad, fighting terrorism. "Americans should all hope that Mike Pompeo is more successful at dealing with this particular president".

Pompeo, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, has been one of Trump's most loyal Cabinet members and quickly formed a close bond with the president, coming personally to the White House most days to deliver the President's Daily Briefing.

The crux of the July 2015 pact between Iran and six major powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States - was that Iran would restrict its nuclear program in return for relief from sanctions that have crippled its economy. He joined other top intelligence community officials in congressional testimony last month to warn that Moscow is mounting another campaign to intervene in upcoming United States elections.

"We got along actually quite well but we disagreed on things", Trump said. He also pointed out the core issue.

"When you look at the Iran deal".

"She'll have to answer for that period of time, but I think she's a highly qualified person", Sen. "I wanted to either break it or do something, he felt a little differently".

"I didn't discuss it very much with him", Trump said.

Shortly before the president said he would meet with Kim, Tillerson had stressed that the USA was a "long ways from negotiations" with North Korea. "It's exactly times like these that I need to visit the United States", the source quoted Kono as saying.

Tillerson said to the press that he and Trump largely disagreed about Russian Federation, which has recently threatened the United States with nuclear war but which also seems to have a personal positive relationship with Trump. But, after more than a year of Mr Tillerson's stubborn performance, perhaps Mr Trump has given up on the power of deals to remake USA foreign policy in his image.

"The lesson of Tillerson is.do not disagree with the President publicly", Miller said, alluding to the way Tillerson split with Trump on the Iran nuclear deal, the administration's approach to Mexico and a host of other issues. "We were not really thinking the same".

"I wish Rex a lot of good things", the president added. "I think he's going to be very happy".

"From day one, Mike Pompeo and President Trump had been on the same wavelength, not just in general, but in particular on North Korea", Cronin said.

Ironically, Trump complained that Tillerson was "too establishment" when he described his reasons for removing him - a corporate outsider who had ambitious plans to apply his experience running a global energy supermajor to wholly restructuring the State Department.

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

In the immediate term, as foreign diplomats sift through Pompeo's pronouncements reflecting hostility to the Iran nuclear deal, some equivocation about Russia's interference in the U.S. presidential election and a gimlet-eyed view of the North Korean threat, they say they aren't sure, at this point, who they should be reaching out to or speaking with, even as a series of important meetings loom.
