According to CNN, Goldstein saidTillerson had been officially notified of his dismissal via a presidential tweet Tuesday, while the White House said he was notified on Friday. In a statement released by the presidential transition, Trump says Tillerson's career "is the embodiment of the American dream" and his "tenacity, broad experience and deep understanding of geopolitics make him an excellent choice for Secretary of State". The fact that he represented moderate positions and sometimes contradicted the president - for example, when it came to North Korea and Iran - repeatedly angered Trump.
Trump's firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson touched off a confirmation battle that will play out ahead of midterm elections, which determine party control of Congress.

Trump said he and Pompeo have "a similar thought process". Remplacing him at the Central Intelligence Agency ((overlaid with pix of Haspel)) will be Gina Haspel, she will be controversial because of her role in early 2000s in potential "black sites" and torture. Earlier at the White House, press secretary Sarah Sanders had refrained from saying Moscow was responsible.
If confirmed by the US Senate after an April committee hearing, Pompeo will be taking over a State Department shaken by the departures of many senior diplomats and embittered by proposed budget cuts. Trump had also previously criticized Tillerson's negotiating skills on Twitter.
Tillerson's exit had been rumored for some time, given his repeated disagreements with Trump on foreign policy. More recently, reports indicated that Tillerson was shocked to hear about Trump's planned meetings with North Korea.
