President Donald Trump announced that CIA director Mike Pompeo would be the new Secretary of State, replacing former Exxon-Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson, Breitbart reports.

In a statement released by the White House, Pompeo said: “I am deeply grateful to President Trump for permitting me to serve as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and for this opportunity to serve as secretary of state. His leadership has made America safer and I look forward to representing him and the American people to the rest of the world to further America’s prosperity.”  Fox News

It appears that President Trump finally has had enough with Tillerson’s talks of peace and handling North Korea with Kid Gloves.


“Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job!  Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!” ~ President Trump

Tillerson had just returned from a trip overseas to Chad and Nigeria, he cut his trip short to prepare for North Korea.


Trump’s surprise announcement took place less than four hours after Tillerson’s flight landed.

“The Secretary had every intention of staying because of the critical progress made in national security.  The Secretary did not speak to the President and is unaware of the reason, but he is grateful for the opportunity to serve, and still believes strongly that public service is a noble calling.” ~ Under Secretary of State Steve Goldstein


Since the start of Tillerson’s duties as Secretary of State, he has preached patience and sanctions against North Korea.  His beliefs and approach has been the opposite for President Trump’s tweets and public statements about dealing with the DPRK.

Before leaving to California, President Trump told the press that Tillerson is a good guy but they are not on the same page.

“We got along actually quite well but we disagreed on things, When you look at the Iran deal, I think it’s terrible.  I guess he felt it was okay…So we were not really thinking the same.” ~ President Trump

The President and the Secretary of State have always been on the opposite sides of issues and Tillerson did what he felt was the right thing for the United States and the President allowed Tillerson the freedom to do so.

Tillerson’s foreign policies are very complacent and have allowed other nation’s to truly go unchecked and create threatening dangers for the United States.

The Blunt Truth about what North Korea is doing and why they are all of a sudden so willing to have talks, has nothing to do with peace.

It is simple, China has all but completed their military bases in the South China Sea, allocated over 100 Billion dollars to further their military as well as supplied North Korea with the fuel and weapons to be a very real world threat.

China and North Korea played the perfect card and now have South Korea completely fooled into a joint Korea under the umbrella of China.

Next step is getting the United States to believe that the past years of nuclear threats, chemical and biological threats and that the promise of war, are all of a sudden vanished from the DPRK and it is time to be friends.

Let us hope that this move by President Trump is because he see’s through the lies and wants a team that is hardened and has the iron fist response.

“I have gotten to know Mike very well over the past 14 months, and I am confident he is the right person for the job at this critical juncture.  He will continue our program of restoring America’s standing in the world, strengthening our alliances, confronting our adversaries, and seeking the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” ~ President Trump
