Rex Tillerson  is out as secretary of state after just 14 months on the job. The WH said Trump asked Tillerson to step down on Friday so the president could have a “new team in place” for an upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But a State Department spokesman told CNN that Tillerson found out about his firing when Trump announced it on Twitter on Tuesday. Tillerson ”had every intention of staying,” the State Department said. “The Secretary did not speak to the President and is unaware of the reason.” Trump told reporters on Tues. that he “made that decision by myself” to remove Tillerson, and noted that “Rex, as you know, was not in this country” at the time. He alluded to their disagreements, saying, “we were not thinking the same,” and predicted, “Rex will be happier now.”
