U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, has been removed after completing his first African tour. Mr. Tillerson who returned to Washington today after meeting with the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday was expected to resign after President Trump announced he would meet with North Korean leader. Mr. Tillerson had told reporters earlier that such a meeting was not about to take place. Mr. Trump announced his removal in a tweet and would be replacing him with CIA director Mike Pompeo. Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Tillerson had resigned.
