Donald Trump fires Secretary of States, Rex Tellerson, hours after he visited President Buhari in Aso Rock

Yesterday, the United States Secretary of States Rex Tellerson visited President Buhari in Aso Rock. Hours later, President Trump took to Twitter to fire him. President Trump in his usual habit relieved Tellerson of his job on social media and appointed Mike Pompeo the new Secretary of States.

He tweeted:
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! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!

Trump however didn't give any reasons why the Secretary of States was fired. But people think Tellerson was fired for speaking against Russia in the ongoing spy poison saga.

Tellerson had said Russia was most likely responsible for the poisoning of a double agent Sergei Scripal, and his daughter Yulia Scripal in the United Kingdom last week.
