washington - President Donald Trump has no intention to replace Foreign Minister Rex Tillerson. The president reported Friday that Tillerson is not leaving the office.
'The media speculate that I have dismissed Rex Tillerson or that he will leave soon. Fake News! ', Trump says via Twitter. 'He does not go away and although we disagree on different topics (I make the final decisions), we work well together and America is respected all over again!'
The New York Times reported Thursday that the White House has a plan ready to have Tillerson replaced by Mike Pompeo, currently chief of the intelligence service CIA. Tillerson called those reports 'laughable' on Friday.
