Report: Tillerson Learns Of His Dismissal Via Trump’s Tweet

20

After Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s  firing today, reports indicate  that Tillerson found out he was out of a job when Trump tweeted out the news.

Trump’s tweet hit the web at 8:44 a.m., just as the first news reports about the firing were published.

The Associated Press’s State Department reporter, Josh Lederman, who was on a plane returning from Africa with Tillerson, indicated no one on board knew this was coming.

  1. Whose bad middos? Wasn’t Tillerson president of Boy Scouts of America when they changed the rules to allow toeiva troop leaders in?
    Besides, we should believe that the President didn’t give him any more notice than this? First, the press will report anything in a way that makes the President look bad. Second, the press has been saying Tillerson was going to be fired for months now; hard to believe that Pres. Trump and Tillerson didn’t have some recent discussions about it.
    He was very effective in Saudia Arabia (having had ties to them from his Exxon days) but apparently his ideas about Russia, North Korea, and other foreign policy hotspots are not aligned with Pres. Trump’s vision.

  2. Also, if you read this closely, “Trump’s tweet hit the web at 8:44 a.m., just as the first news reports about the firing were published.” If news reports were published at the same as the tweet appeared, then obviously many people knew about it before the tweet came out. Why wouldn’t Tillerson have been one of those who knew? Just because he was in Africa doesn’t mean he was out of touch with the WH.

    “The Associated Press’s State Department reporter, Josh Lederman, who was on a plane returning from Africa with Tillerson, indicated no one on board knew this was coming.” A. Associated Press, so how reliable? B. “indicated” could mean anything. C. no one on board…Maybe because Tillerson didn’t want to talk about it? or had agreed not to discuss it until it had been announced?

  3. Tillerson liked Obama’s Iran deal, he was upset at Trump for withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord, he didn’t see anything wrong with the Antifa terrorists organization, didn’t agree with Trump on Charlotessville and kept bad mouthing Trump. He has no place in Trump’s administration.

    However, I wonder how long Pompeo will last. If he went after the heroes Snowden and Assange for telling the truth about the US government corruptions referring to Wikileaks as an enemy, and wants them to receive the “death sentence”, should tell you enough about him. In short, Pompeo was a CIA director, a non-elected federal agent an organization that does more harm than good.

    • Wow. Calling Snowden and Assange heroes. Who would have ever imagined that people who call themselves Republicans woukd call them heroes? Then again, Hannity, who used to call out Snowden as a traitor, used to call Wikileaks the enemy of America, has no problem with them anymore. The biggest success of Trump has been to convert conservatives into liberals….

      • I see you’re still bitter that your guy, Hillary, lost. GET OVER IT. Move on with your life. The economy is doing great. Stop kvetching and go out and make a few dollars.

        • Why would I be bitter that Hillary lost, when I have her big donor, who donated so much money to her, in the white house? Why would I be bigger that Hillary lost, when I have a President whose trillion dollar budget will put us into bankruptcy in a way Hillary would never imagine? Why would I be bigger that Hillary lost, when I have a President whose stance against morality is just as bad as Hillary’s?
          I am bitter, bitter that Trump got all these libs, phony conservatives who don’t know the first thing about conservatism, fiscal responsibility, the Constitution, Seperation of Powers, and got them to vote in the GOP primary, amd knock out true conservatives such as Cruz, Rubio, Carson. In fact, even Jeb and Kasich would be more conservative then Trump.

          • Aha, so now it comes comes out. You were a Jeb guy all along. That’s okay. It’s your right as an American to vote for whomever you want. But to spend your waking hours bitter is not a solution either. I don’t see successful people walking around depressed because of who is in the White House. Not by Obama and not now by Trump. They are making money hand over fist regardless of the level of yiras shomayim coming out of Pennsylvania Ave. I don’t see Rabbanim waking around depressed.

      • Sure they’re heroes and they deserves the greatest honorable medals for being behind America’s greatest President ever למען יאריך ימים על ממלכתו

        Stop drinking a few days if at all possible and when you’ll be sober check the dictionary for the difference between conservatives and liberals. Warning, you might be in for a shock.

        • Liberal=people who like trillion dollar stimulus. Conservatives=people who believe in fiscal responsibility.
          Liberal= people who are against free trade. Conservatives= people who believe in free trade.
          Liberal= people who are opposed to morality. Conservatives = people who stand for morality.
          Etc etc etc….

        • @Lemaan Ha’emes- I very clearly wroye that I’m a Cruz guy, and you call me a Jeb guy. Classic Trumpet move….what I did say about Jeb is that even he is more conservative than Trillion-dollar-stimulus-Trump. The low-information voter (yes, the right also has them, listening to Hannity all day is no different than those on the left listening to CNN all day) cannot process the fact that their hero is a NY lib, or they don’t really care, because conservatism is not what they believe in.

          • Cruz lost because of the backstabbing Kasich. I was all for Cruz until he chose that windbag Carly Fiorina. Ted is a good guy but it wasn’t meant to be.

  4. Pompeo is anti free speech and no fan of real news/alt-right news that divulges the truth to the public.

  5. The Tillerson aide who told the media that Tillerson found out from the tweet was FIRED for lying. Truth is Tillerson has been talking about his exit with the President for a while now.

  6. Tillerson is anti Israel. He is in the pockets of Arab big oil. Trump did the correct thing. Got rid of another anti semite.
