In a morning tweet, President Trump announced Mike Pompeo would replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. The announcement came as a surprise to many, especially given Trump's recent announcement that he would meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Some believe it was long overdue, Tillerson and Trump have butt heads in the past. But others feel Tillerson was a voice of reason in the Trump administration, and his departure is a bad thing. What do you think?

Trump announced Tillerson would no longer be Secretary of State in a morning tweet.

Many believe Tillerson was one of the worst Secretary of States we've ever had, so it's not surprising he'd eventually be fired.

But others are concerned. Even those who didn't like Tillerson see a pattern as yet another cabinet member is dumped. And Tillerson stood up to Trump on Russia.

Others feel Tillerson, like Gary Cohn, was one of the adults in the room.
