Tillerson Told to Watch for Trump’s Tweet

The State Department said that Rex Tillerson only learned of his termination when he read President Trump’s tweet on Tuesday morning, the AP reports.

“Two senior department officials said Tillerson received a call from John Kelly, Trump’s chief of staff, on Friday, but was only told that there might be a presidential tweet that would concern him. Kelly didn’t tell Tillerson what the tweet might say or when it might actually publish.”

Washington Post: “In the end, no one was more surprised that Tillerson was fired than Tillerson himself.”
