Rex Tillerson Found Out He Was Fired As Secretary of State From President Donald Trump’s Tweet


Secretary of State Rex Tillerson learned he was fired Tuesday only from a tweet by his boss, President Donald Trump, NBC News reported, citing State Department officials.



And to add insult to injury, Tillerson was basically an afterthought in that tweet, which first introduced Trump’s new chosen top diplomat, CIA Director Mike Pompeo.


According to NBC News, senior State Department officials said that there were long-standing tensions between Tillerson and Trump, and that former Exxon CEO Tillerson learned that he was canned from that tweet just before 9 a.m. Tuesday.
