Trump plans State Department shift; AR Sen. Tom Cotton in the mix

The latest reports indicate his long-anticipated departure from State could be coming in the next few weeks, under a new plan pushed by Gen. John Kelly, which would see Tillerson ousted, and replaced by current CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Pompeo is reportedly much closer to President Trump and has a good relationship with the President, unlike Tillerson, who has appeared to distance himself from Trump on a number of occasions.

Both CNN and Bloomberg subsequently reported that the White House is weighing replacing Tillerson with Pompeo.

Trump has soured on Tillerson mostly because of the "moron" report, his less confrontational approach on North Korea and differences over the Qatar crisis, one senior US official said.

Asked whether he wanted Tillerson to remain in his job, Trump sidestepped the question, telling reporters at the White House: "He's here". Nauert added that Tillerson "serves at the pleasure of the president". Tom Cotton of Arkansas.

But the White House's tentative plans to replace Pompeo at the Central Intelligence Agency with Sen.

"There are no personnel announcements at this time", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later said in a statement that left Tillerson twisting in the wind. "Perfect" is widely reported to be behind some of the most egregious mistakes of Trump's presidency so far, including the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and Trump's decision to back the doomed Alabama primary candidacy of Sen.

But he still would suffer from problems that have afflicted Tillerson, chief among them a boss who has shown little regard for diplomacy and no qualms about undermining his secretary of state with tweets, current and former USA officials said.

However, they said Pompeo would need to resist the planned budget cuts and find a way to grapple with Trump's tweets. Tillerson has been overtly refusing to take Trump's hostile line on North Korea. On several occasions, the president publicly undercut his diplomatic initiatives.

A senior administration official who spoke recently with Tillerson says the former Exxon Mobil CEO felt secure in his position and was focused on his State Department reorganization and other diplomacy matters.
