Trump fires chief diplomat Tillerson after clashes, taps Pompeo

Trump fires chief diplomat Tillerson after clashes, taps Pompeo

Here is a partial list of officials who have been fired or quit since Trump took office on January 20, 2017, as well as people nominated by him for a position who did not take the job.

Tillerson is just the latest to step down in the Trump administration.

"Pompeo has a sort of hard-line approach on foreign policy that's quite black and white, and that's also how Trump sees the world", Ilan Goldenberg, a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security who worked at the State Department under then-Secretary John Kerry, said in an interview in December.

"The secretary did not speak to the president this morning and is unaware of the reason, but he is grateful for the opportunity to serve, and still believes strongly that public service is a noble calling and not to be regretted", Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein said. If confirmed by the Senate, she would become the first woman to hold the post.

Gary Cohn The director of the National Economic Council and former Goldman Sachs Group Inc president said on March 5 he will resign in a few weeks. His decision came after he lost a fight to try to stop Trump from imposing import tariffs on steel and aluminum. How long do you think it'll be before the next dismissal comes from the White House?

President Donald Trump's choice to be the first female director of the CIA is a career spymaster who once ran an agency prison in Thailand where terror suspects were subjected to a harsh interrogation technique that the president has supported.

One of Mr. Pompeo's signature moves as Central Intelligence Agency director was the creation past year of a Korea Mission Center focused on examining the North Korean missile threat and how best to manage the crisis. Four days later, a federal court ruled in Trump's favor. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price left last fall after outcry about his use of private planes. Trump lost confidence in Priebus after major legislative items failed to be approved by Congress.

Mike Dubke, White House communications director, resigned later in May after months of chaos in the press shop.

Ten were appointed near the end of a presidential administration.

Michael Short Senior White House assistant press secretary, resigned in July.

When she was picked as deputy CIA director, her career was lauded by veteran intelligence officials, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who recently retired.

James Comey The Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who was leading a probe into possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation to influence the election outcome, was sacked by Trump in May. Trump had previously berated Tillerson publicly on Twitter, saying he was wasting his time talking to North Korea, a line that had led the secretary of state to remark (just before Trump changed his mind) that there was no immediate prospect of talks with North Korea.

Gerrit Lansing The White House chief digital officer stepped down in February after failing to pass an Federal Bureau of Investigation background check, according to Politico.

The appointment raises the prospect of improved relations between the State Department and the U.S. team at the United Nations; current U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who had sometimes been mentioned as a possible replacement for Tillerson, had clashed bitterly with him.
