President Donald Trump ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, replacing him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, appointing Gina Haspel instead of him.


This is a major shake up of Trump’s cabinet. Tillerson was made to cut short his trip to Africa a day before to come back to Washington as preparations of the meeting of President Trump and North Korea’s leader.

Hapsel has been the deputy director of the CIA. She will be the first woman to run the US intelligence service.
