Trump weighs plan to oust Tillerson

CIA Director Mike Pompeo

The overhaul could produce a significant shift in both the tone and direction of the president's foreign policy, removing it from the understated former oil man whose style has never fit well with Trump's.

In a major foreign policy speech on U.S. relations with Europe under Trump's "America First" foreign policy, Tillerson pledged that sanctions against Russian Federation will remain in place until it helps restore peace in Ukraine.

Pompeo left the U.S. House seat representing Kansas' 4th District to head the Central Intelligence Agency in January.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Mr Tillerson was still secretary of state.

A succession plan appears to be in place after a year of a strained relationship between President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to reports.

When asked about reports, Mr Trump declined to say whether he wanted Mr Tillerson to remain in the job.

The nature of the reported change also suggests a change in the administration's focus, with Tillerson having, for instance, ruled out imposing regime change in North Korea, while Pompeo, said to be a Trump favorite recently, has openly advocated it.

Mr. Trump has been publicly frustrated with his top diplomat.

"So the question is not whether Pompeo can do the job but whether the president is going to let Pompeo do the job". "They engaged in a foreign leader visit and are continuing to work together to close out what we've seen to be an incredible year".

Tillerson answered that "the president speaks for himself".
