One White House official added that Trump has been angry with Shulkin and raised the idea about the switch to Perry on Monday but didn't offer the job. But Mike Pompeo, the former Kansas congressman and current director of the CIA whom Trump has named as Tillerson's replacement, seems a far better fit, both ideologically and operationally.

Pompeo and Haspel, he continued "want to manipulate the president into the sphere of the neocons who never met a war they didn't want to star in".

Several Democrats criticized Trump's choices of Pompeo, saying that Pompeo's hawkish positions and seeming willingness to bend facts as CIA director - such as saying the intelligence community had determined that Russian meddling had no effect on the outcome of the 2016 election - made him unsuitable for the role of top diplomat.

The host went on to slam the president's personal life.

Already in Iran, some are expressing concerns. Tillerson's reported word to describe the president was "moron".

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. To understand why he's going though, one needs to look at the reasons he was picked.

"This is not a purge of non-nationalists", she wrote. People close to the Trump transition at the time bemoaned Tillerson's links to Bush policymakers like Baker and Bush 43 Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who, while charter members of the Republican foreign policy elite, are anathema to many conservatives still on the scene who backed Reagan as well as the anti-globalists in Trump's inner and outer circles.

Netanyahu has also welcomed the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem - a move for which Tillerson showed little enthusiasm.

The surprising thing about the removal of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is not that Donald Trump fired him, but that he waited a year and a half to do so - given that the president is well known for his outspoken outbursts.Everyone knows that Trump and Tillerson disagreed on many key issues, including the nuclear deal with Iran, North Korea, dealing with Russia, and of course Qatar.His differences with the president aside, the Secretary of State also had disagreements with the government's most prominent leaders, including the head of the CIA, Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner, the Homeland Security Advisor, and Trump's ambassador to the UN.Does the secretary of state have an important and effective role in a system headed by a strong president like Trump and his assistants?

"In my meetings with Pompeo I was very impressed by his experience and abilities".
