Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is making his first public statement after being fired by President Donald Trump this morning over Twitter. Tillerson will be succeeded by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, pending a Senate confirmation. Pompeo will be replaced by Gina Hapsel who, as NPR notes, may have a tough road to her Senate confirmation.
