Earlier today, President Donald Trump of the US sacked his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, just on his return from a trip.
Following the mixed reactions that have trailed the Tillerson sack, President Trump has revealed why he took what many have deemed a brash action.
Regarding why he sacked Tillerson, Trump said Tillerson spoke ill about Russia President, Vladimir Putin despite his warning.
“I just fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Yesterday Rex said something mean about Putin.
“I’ve warned every American that under no circumstances was anyone allowed to criticize Putin or Russia (even if they committed acts of war against us). Mike Pompeo will replace Rex,” Trump tweeted.
