Secretary of State Rex Tillerson speaks during a news conference in December

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was ousted Tuesday after months of strained relations with President Donald Trump, who sometimes used tweets to disparage the former Exxon Mobil CEO's efforts at global diplomacy, Bloomberg reports. He will do a fantastic job!

Trump also thanked Tillerson for his service.

Gina Haspel, the deputy director of the CIA, will replace Pompeo if confirmed by the Senate, becoming the first female director of that agency.

It was the latest shake up in Trump's administration.

A senior White House official said: "The president wanted to make sure to have his new team in place in advance of the upcoming talks with North Korea and various ongoing trade negotiations". Trump offered no explanation for the change.

The central probe agency CBI has been conducting raids on several locations related to Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi including their law firms.

He also tapped Gina Haspel to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.

Trump's tweet Tuesday came the day after Tillerson blamed Russian Federation for an assassination in London - something the White House had specifically declined to do just hours before. "His leadership has made America safer and I look forward to representing him and the American people to the rest of the world to further America's prosperity", Pompeo said in a statement.

The breaking point appears to be Trump's surprise announcement last week that he was willing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, according to CBS News.

Trump and Tillerson, the former CEO of Exxon Mobile, have reportedly been at odds for months. Reporters who cover the State Department had been guessing how long into 2018 that Tillerson would last.
