Only about 60 of roughly 150 State Department posts requiring Senate confirmation have been filled, according to The Washington Post.

Tillerson's Under Secretary of State, Steve Goldstein, was also fired on Tuesday for contradicting the White House account of Trump's firing of Tillerson, saying the secretary of State was caught flat-footed by the announcement. While Trump said he believes the Iran deal is "terrible", he said Tillerson that it "was okay". "I wanted to break it or do something, and he felt a little bit differently". "So we were not thinking the same". "With Mike Pompeo, we have a very similar thought process". "I think that's the best way to handle it".

The statement was in keeping with one issued Monday by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who said she believed it was "highly likely" that Russian Federation was somehow involved with the poisoning, which employed a rare nerve agent in the city of Salisbury.

Russian Federation "has reasserted itself aggressively, invading and occupying Ukraine, threatening Europe, and doing nothing to aid in the destruction and defeat of ISIS", Pompeo said during his confirmation hearing in January of 2017. She did not mention Haspel.

After he was sacked by President Donald Trump, Tillerson also said USA efforts to pressure North Korea had worked better than expected and revealed he would pass authority to his deputy at midnight.

Goldstein had served in the Interior Department under George H.W. Bush.

Donald Trump's pick for head of the Central Intelligence Agency, Gina Haspel, reportedly oversaw a black site prison in Thailand where terrorism suspects were tortured. He went on to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives with a proven record of working across the aisle.
