  • Trump weighs plan to oust Tillerson, put CIA's boss at State

In 10 months as America's chief diplomat, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has found no world leader a greater challenge than the President of the United States.

While the changeup would make another cabinet member leaving or being replaced in less than a year of Trump's presidency, Secretary of Defense James Mattis - who is number six behind number four, Tillerson, in the line of succession - said Thursday afternoon he is not anxious about such a change.

The next day, Trump appeared to dismiss those efforts in a tweet, telling Tillerson he was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea.

"As the President just said, 'Rex is here.' There are no personnel announcements at this time".

Buffeted by multiple reports that President Trump will replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in another of the top-level shakeups that have roiled the administration, the State Department struggled Thursday to portray business as usual.

Mr Tillerson could go within weeks, administration sources said today, with Mr Pompeo, a former congressman who has impressed Mr Trump at his daily intelligence briefings, being replaced at Langley, the CIA headquarters, by Tom Cotton, a hawkish Republican congressman from Arkansas.

The hope from the White House, the source said, is to push out the plan to replace Tillerson and then "wait for him to punch out".

The strategy to remove Tillerson comes amid strained relations between President Donald Trump and his top diplomat.

According to reports, Sebastian Gorka, former advisor to President Donald Trump, told Breitbart in October, Pompeo is "very loyal to the president".

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly developed the transition plan and has discussed it with other officials, the Times reported.

She says Tillerson continues to lead the department, and that the entire Cabinet is focused on completing Trump's first year in office.

"Secretary Tillerson enjoys this job".

He has also been a defender of the worldwide community's nuclear deal with Iran - an agreement Trump pledged to scrap on the campaign trail, and has continued to lambast after taking office.

Calling the story "erroneous" during his remarks, Tillerson pointed the finger at "some who try to sow dissension" to undermine the President's agenda and said he has been asked "repeatedly" if he's going to step down.
