Sacked Tillerson issues Russian Federation warning

Sacked Tillerson issues Russian Federation warning

"I guess he thought it was OK", Trump said yesterday.

More consequentially for Canada, it's hard to imagine him as a counterweight to the protectionists dominating Mr. Trump's cabinet table.

"We want him to be successful", the third senior State Department official said.

Meyers began by poking fun at the way Tillerson reportedly found out that he was sacked, which was by tweet from President Trump.

Pompeo said his goal as America's spymaster was to create a culture that says: "If you are in a process and you're not adding value, get out of the way". "They talk on a daily basis. He's trusted and he can speak frankly". Only Mr. Trump could think it a good idea to sack his top diplomat amid heightening Western tensions with Russian Federation and ahead of a possible spring summit with North Korea - a rapprochement Mr. Tillerson hinted at a year ago. And the two men had similarly direct styles of speaking.

On "Late Night With Seth Meyers", the host said the news of Tillerson's firing was announced via Twitter, but joked that it was "technically a retweet", then displayed an image of a fake tweet written by Russian President Vladimir Putin that said, "You're Fired, Rex".

BLOCKED DEAL: Behind the Wall Street drop was Trump's blocking of Singapore-based chipmaker Broadcom's effort to buy Qualcomm, one of the biggest makers of processors that power smartphones and other mobile devices.

In a brief statement, the former undercover officer said she was "humbled" by Trump's confidence in her.

Avril Haines, a former CIA deputy director and onetime White House deputy national security adviser, said Haspel "is intelligent, compassionate, and fair" and has "an unparalleled understanding of the institution, the agency's work, and she will support the workforce - all attributes the agency needs from its director". The 54-year-old former congressman from Kansas has grown close to Mr Trump by delivering the president's daily intelligence briefing nearly every day since taking office in January 2017. "She's an outstanding person who also I have gotten to know very well", Trump told reporters at the White House. "Prime Minister Abe and Trump have a close relationship, so it's no problem", the source was quoted saying.

Waiting game: Browns still not sure of Joe Thomas' future
Whatever reasonable doubts Thomas had at the beginning of the offseason have certainly been altered at this point in time. Even after adding three players in a series of trades this week, the Browns have $82 million in cap space .

Mike Pompeo is an American politician and businessman before his appointment as CIA Director was a representative of Kansas in Congress 2011-2017.

"He was very involved in all the political discussions on the health care debate", a friend of Pompeo's said. Tillerson spent his entire career at the oil and gas giant, and was present at the company during the time when its scientists detailed the heat-trapping dangers of burning fossil fuels. The president will still make off-the-cuff decisions, send unhelpful tweets and subcontract large, ill-defined areas of foreign policy to relatives.

"I've worked with Mike Pompeo now for quite some time". Tremendous energy, tremendous intellect.

"I do not expect an emergence of true diplomacy and may in fact result in a more tense geopolitical environment to include further alienation of many traditional allies", Washington's Eurasia Center Vice President Earl Rasmussen said on Tuesday. I suspect the only thing that kept him from being even worse was that some former Secretaries of State, like Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell, reached out to him and tried to help him become a more conventional secretary than he otherwise would have been. The Tennessee Republican had what he described as a "very good conversation" with the Central Intelligence Agency director on Tuesday.

"For whatever reason, chemistry, whatever it is", Trump told reporters. Why do people get along? "Right from the beginning, from day one, I've gotten along well with Mike Pompeo". He also never expressed his gratitude to the president for giving him the job.

A three-term Republican congressman, Mr Pompeo is known for his hardline stance over Iran, and for being one of Hillary Clinton's most vocal critics during the Benghazi incident.

Pompeo has long-questioned the links between fossil fuel burning and climate change, which climate scientists regard as irrefutable. Pompeo must succeed in his place.

"The Trump administration with Pompeo at the State Department has to mobilize the worldwide community against Iran", said Alex Vatanka, a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute in Washington.

"The intelligence community has been clear that's not our role to discuss that", he said of the effect of Russia's actions on the outcome of the presidential election.
