  • NINAN, INC.
  • YOU FOR JOINING US.
  • ANY MOMENT NOW, REX TILLERSON
  • WILL DELIVER A STATEMENT LIFE
  • IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT COME --
  • STATE DEPARTMENT, AFTER HE WAS
  • FIRED AS SECRETARY OF STATE. WE
  • WILL BRING IT TO YOU LIVE.
  • HIS FIRING COMES AFTER MONTHS
  • OF TENSION BETWEEN THE
  • PRESIDENT AND HIS TOP DIPLOMAT,
  • ISSUES LIKE THE IRAN NUCLEAR
  • DEAL AND NORTH KOREA, THE STATE
  • DEPARTMENT SAID HE WAS NOT TOLD
  • WHY HE WAS FIRED, THE PRESIDENT
  • HAS PICKED MIKE POMPEO, THE
  • DIRECTOR OF THE CIA, TO TAKE
  • OVER AT STATE.
  • HE MENTIONED IT AS HE LEFT FOR
  • CALIFORNIA.
  • >> I HAVE WORKED WITH MIKE
  • POMPEO NOW FOR QUITE SOME TIME,
  • TREMENDOUS ENERGY, INTELLECT,
  • WE ARE ALWAYS ON THE SAME
  • WAVELENGTH, THE RELATIONSHIP
  • HAS BEEN VERY GOOD, AND THAT IS
  • WHAT I NEED AS SECRETARY OF
  • STATE, I WISH REX TILLERSON
  • WELL.
  • GINA, I KNOW VERY WELL, I HAVE
  • WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH, THE
  • FIRST FEMALE DIRECTOR OF THE
  • CIA, AN OUTSTANDING PERSON, I
  • HAVE GOT TO KNOW HER VERY WELL.
  • I'VE GOT TO KNOW PEOPLE VERY
  • WELL OVER THE LAST YEAR, AND I
  • AM REALLY AT A POINT WHERE WE
  • ARE HAVING A CLOSE TIME TO HAVE
  • THE CABINET THAT I WANT COBB
  • BUT I THINK MIKE POMPEO WILL BE
  • A TRULY GREAT SECRETARY OF
  • STATE, I HAVE TOTAL CONFIDENCE
  • IN HIM, AND AS FAR AS REX
  • TILLERSON IS CONCERNED, I VERY
  • MUCH APPRECIATE HIS COMMITMENT
  • AND HIS SERVICE, AND I WISH HIM
  • WELL.>> EARLIER, I SPOKE TO THE
  • HILL, BOB CUSACK.>> IS SIMILAR
  • TO HOW JAMES COMEY WAS FIRED,
  • TRUMP DID NOT CONTACT JAMES
  • COMEY, HE HAD AN ASSISTANT GO
  • OVER TO THE FBI, AND COMAY WAS
  • OUT OF TOWN, AND THERE WAS A
  • LOT OF -- JAMES COMEY WAS OUT
  • OF TOWN.
  • THERE WAS A LOT OF TENSION
  • BETWEEN REX TILLERSON AND
  • DONALD TRUMP, I THINK HE WAS
  • NEVER ABLE TO GET OVER THE FACT
  • THAT IT WAS REPORTED THAT
  • TILLERSON CALLED HIM A MORON,
  • THEY DIDN'T TRUST EACH OTHER,
  • GOING INTO THESE NORTH KOREA
  • TALKS, HE LIKES LOYALISTS, MIKE
  • POMPEO IS A LOYALIST, REX
  • TILLERSON IS NOT.
  • >> TELL ME ABOUT MIKE POMPEO
  • AND NORTH KOREA, WHAT DO WE
  • KNOW ABOUT HIS RECORD?
  • >> VERY ACCOMPLISHED, IN THE
  • HOUSE, HOUSE INTELLIGENCE
  • COMMITTEE, NOMINATED TO CIA,
  • AND YOU GOT THE FEELING THAT
  • BECAUSE OF THE RELATIONHIP, HE
  • WAS BRIEFING DONALD TRUMP ON A
  • DAILY BASIS OF DANGERS AROUND
  • THE WORLD, THAT HE REALLY WAS
  • GOING TO GET SOME OTHER TYPE OF
  • POSITION, SOME SPECULATION FOR
  • ATTORNEY GENERAL, BECAUSE JEFF
  • SESSIONS AND DONALD TRUMP HAVE
  • HAD THEIR UPS AND DOWNS, TO SAY
  • THE LEAST, BUT THE TRUMP LOYAL
  • TO -- THE TRUMP LOYALISTS LIKE
  • THIS PICK, MIKE POMPEO GOT SOME
  • DEMOCRATIC SUPPORT, HIS
  • CONFIRMATION HEARING IS GOING
  • TO BE TOUGH, HE WILL HAVE THE
  • VOTES, HE GOT 66 LAST TIME, HE
  • ONLY NEEDS 51 THIS TIME.
  • >> SO YOU DON'T THINK IT WILL
  • BE DIFFICULT?
  • BUT A LOT OF QUESTIONS, BUT HE
  • IS RESPECTED ACROSS THE AISLE,
  • AND IN ALL LIKELIHOOD, HE WILL
  • BE CONFIRMED.
  • >> WHAT SORT OF ROLE DO YOU
  • THINK HE WILL PLAY WITH NORTH
  • KOREA?>> I THINK DONALD TRUMP
  • AND MIKE POMPEO ARE MORE LIKE-
  • MINDED, AS TRUMP LIKES TO SAY,
  • HE LIKES TO BE TOUGH, AND HE
  • FELT THAT REX TILLERSON WASN'T
  • TOUGH ENOUGH, AND TILLERSON WAS
  • TRYING TO BE A DIPLOMAT, AND
  • TRUMP WOULD SAY DON'T WASTE
  • YOUR TIME WITH NORTH KOREA, AND
  • NOW TRUMP IS VERY MUCH
  • INTERESTED IN SITTING DOWN WITH
  • KIM JONG-UN, IN A HISTORIC
  • MEETING, AND HE DIDN'T WANT REX
  • TILLERSON BY HIS SIDE, HE ONCE
  • MIKE POMPEO BY HIS SIDE.
  • >> PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID HE IS
  • CLOSE TO HAVE THE CABINET THAT
  • HE WANTS, COULD HE BE IMPLYING
  • THAT THERE ARE THE CABINET
  • MEMBERS THAT HE'S NOT HAPPY
  • WITH?
  • >> THAT IS WHAT WE ARE HEARING,
  • OTHER SHOES TO DROP, YOU HAVE
  • TO THINK OF JEFF SESSIONS AT
  • ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE ONLY
  • PROBLEM THERE IS THAT ROD
  • ROSENSTEIN WOULD BE THE ACTING
  • ATTORNEY GENERAL AS HE SEARCHES
  • FOR A NEW ONE, BUT IT IS CLEAR,
  • THIS IS A PIVOTAL POINT AT THE
  • -- IN THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY, A
  • POWER SHIFT GOING ON, GENERAL
  • KELLY, THE CHIEF OF STAFF, HE
  • DOESN'T HAVE THE POWER USED TO
  • HAVE, GARY COHN OUT AT THE
  • WHITE HOUSE, AND THE ROB PORTER
  • SCANDAL, THIS IS TRUMP SAYING
  • ABOUT DOING WITH THE
  • ESTABLISHMENT WANTS ME TO DO,
  • HE IS BECOMING MORE LIKE TRUMP,
  • AND NOT GIVING TO -- NOT
  • LISTENING TO ADVICE GIVEN BY
  • WILL WASHINGTON -- ADVICE GIVEN
  • BY WASHINGTON PEOPLE.
  • >> HE SAYS HE IS ON THE SAME
  • WAVELENGTH AS MIKE POMPEO, HE
  • úSAYS HE LIKES CONFLICT, THESE
  • OPPOSING VIEWS, IS THAT THE
  • OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE IS DOING
  • TODAY?
  • BUT IN SOME WAYS IT IS, [
  • LAUGHTER ], BUT IT SEEMS LIKE
  • REX TILLERSON -- >> IN SOME
  • WAYS IT IS, [ LAUGHTER ], BUT
  • IT SEEMS LIKE REX TILLERSON AND
  • DONALD TRUMP DIDN'T SEE EYE TO
  • EYE, TRUMP RESPECTED HIS EXXON
  • EXPERIENCE, SOME SAID HE DIDN'T
  • HAVE WHAT IT TOOK TO BE
  • SECRETARY OF STATE, BUT A LOT
  • OF PEOPLE NOTED THAT HE DID A
  • LOT OF FOREIGN DEALS, I THINK
  • IT CAME DOWN TO RELATIONSHIPS,
  • IN ANY INDUSTRY IT IS IMPORTANT,
  • DONALD TRUMP IS MORE
  • COMFORTABLE WITH MIKE POMPEO
  • THAN REX TILLERSON.
  • >>> I WANT TO TURN NSQ ABOUT
  • THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE
  • COMMITTEE, THEY SAY THEY
  • FINISHED THE RUSSIA ELECTION
  • MEDDLING, AND THEY FOUND NO
  • COLLUSION.
  • I WANT TO PLAY WHAT PRESIDENT
  • TRUMP HAD TO SAY.
  • >> WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THE
  • HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE,
  • SAYING THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO
  • COLLUSION WITH RESPECT TO
  • RUSSIA, AND IT WAS A VERY
  • POWERFUL DECISION, A STRONG
  • DECISION, BACKED UP, I
  • UNDERSTAND, THEY WANT -- THEY
  • WILL RELEASE HUNDREDS OF PAGES
  • OF PROOF AND EVIDENCE, WE ARE
  • VERY HAPPY WITH THAT DECISION,
  • A POWERFUL DECISION, THAT LEFT
  • NO DOUBT.>> BUT FOLKS ARE NOT
  • UNITED ON THIS, THE DEMOCRATS
  • ARE GOING TO ISSUE THEIR OWN
  • REPORT, WHAT YOU THINK THEIR
  • CONCLUSIONS MIGHT SAY?
  • BUT REPUBLICANS AS EARLY AS
  • TODAY ARE GOING TO DELIVER A
  • 150 PAGE REPORT TO THE
  • DEMOCRATS, THE MAJORITY
  • OPINION, AND THEN A MINORITY
  • OPINION, THEY ARE GOING TO
  • COUNTER THAT. WE WILL SEE THOSE
  • REPORTS, MAYBE SOME REDACTED,
  • THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEE IT.
  • THIS IS NOT SURPRISING, THIS
  • COMMITTEE, WHICH USED TO WORK
  • ON A BIPARTISAN BASIS, HAS JUST
  • BEEN A PARTISAN BATTLEGROUND.
  • AND I THINK THIS IS CLEARING
  • THE WAY FOR THE PRESIDENT
  • ELUDING THAT IT IS OVER, NO
  • COLLUSION, AND WE HAVE ALREADY
  • HEARD FROM SOME CONSERVATIVES,
  • IT IS TIME FOR ROBERT MUELLER
  • TO WRAP UP HIS INVESTIGATION.
  • OF COURSE, HE DOESN'T HAVE TO
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY, AND
  • THE OTHER THING IS, TIMING,
  • SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE,
  • JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, ALSO DOING
  • INVESTIGATIONS THAT HAVE NOT
  • WRAPPED UP, IF THEY WRAP UP IN
  • THE NEAR FUTURE, THAT I THINK
  • THERE WOULD BE SOME PRESSURE ON
  • ROBERT MUELLER.
  • THE PROBLEM FOR ROBERT MUELLER
  • IS THE TIMING OF WHATEVER HE
  • ELEASES WHAT HE'S GOING TO
  • RELEASE, WE CAN'T DO IT RIGHT
  • BEFORE THE ELECTION, I THINK
  • THERE IS A DECENT SHOT THAT HIS
  • INVESTIGATION GOES BEYOND THE
  • MIDTERM ELECTION.
  • >> IS AT THE ROBERT MUELLER
  • INVESTIGATION THEY ARE WATCHING?
  • YOU MENTIONED THE CREDIBILITY,
  • TAINTED, NOT BIPARTISAN, VERY
  • PARTISAN, AND THEIR
  • CREDIBILITY, IS IT JUST SHOT AT
  • THIS POINT?>> I THINK IT IS,
  • THAT PANEL IS BROKEN, BOTH
  • SIDES SAY, THEY FINGER POINT TO
  • THE OTHER SIDE IS THE REASON,
  • THE SENATE PANELS GET ALONG
  • MUCH BETTER, BUT AT THE SAME
  • TIME, ROBERT MUELLER IS THE ONE
  • MAKING NEWS, HE IS LOOKING AS
  • IN-DEPTH AS ANYBODY IT SEEMS,
  • HE'S GOT THE AUTHORITY TO DO
  • THAT, SO I THINK THE FINAL SAY
  • WILL BE ROBERT MUELLER,
  • PERIOD.>>> THE PRESIDENT WILL
  • BE INSPECTING PROTOTYPES FOR
  • THE LONG PROMISED WALL ON THE
  • MEXICO BORDER, CONGRESS HAS YET
  • TO PROVIDE THE ESTIMATED $20
  • BILLION ON HOW TO BUILD THIS.
  • REMIND US AGAIN, WHERE DOES
  • CONGRESS STAND ON THE
  • PRESIDENTS WALL PROPOSAL?>>
  • THEY ARE NOT CLOSE TO PASSING A
  • WALL PROPOSAL, THERE WAS TALK
  • OF A BIG DEAL WHERE PRESIDENT
  • TRUMP WOULD GIVE THE DEMOCRATS
  • WHAT THEY WANT ON DREAMERS, AND
  • TRUMP WOULD GET HIS WALL, OR
  • FUNDING FOR HIS WALL, THEY PUT
  • THAT ON THE TABLE, BUT THEY
  • PULLED BACK, I DON'T SEE ANY
  • DEAL ON IMMIGRATION HAPPENING
  • ANYTIME SOON, ESPECIALLY
  • BECAUSE THE DREAMERS ARE NOT IN
  • DANGER OF BEING DEPORTED, EVEN
  • THOUGH WE ARE PAST MARCH 5,
  • BECAUSE OF COURT BATTLES, SO
  • UNTIL WE GET ANOTHER RULING,
  • THE WALL IS DEAD AND THE
  • DREAMERS ARE CERTAINLY STALLED.
  • >>> A LIVE LOOK NOW AT THE
  • STATE DEPARTMENT, FORMER
  • SECRETARY OF STATE REX
  • TILLERSON WILL BE TAKING THAT
  • PODIUM ANY MOMENT NOW,
  • ACCORDING TO OUR REPORTING, HE
  • WAS NOTIFIED THROUGH MEDIA
  • REPORTS, HE DIDN'T RECEIVE A
  • DIRECT CALL FROM THE PRESIDENT,
  • MAYBE WE WILL GET SOME
  • CLARIFICATION, AND IF HE HAS A
  • REASON AS TO WHY HE WAS FIRED.
  • REPORTERS AT THE STATE
  • DEPARTMENT IN PLACE, WE EXPECT
  • THIS TO HAPPEN ANY MOMENT NOW,
  • WE WILL BRING IT TO YOU LIVE AS
  • SOON AS IT BEGINS.
  • >>> PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS NAMED
  • GINA HASPEL AS THE NOOSE -- AS
  • THE NEW CIA DIRECTOR, I SPOKE
  • WITH SOMEBODY, WHO SAID YOU
  • DON'T MESS WITH HER, SHE WAS
  • NOT JUST A WORKER BECAUSE SHE
  • WAS AN ARCHITECT OF THE ENHANCED
  • INTERROGATION PROGRAM THAT
  • DEALT WITH BLACK TIGHT -- BLACK
  • SITES AND TORTURE.
  • >> SHE IS WELL RESPECTED WITHIN
  • THE RANK-AND-FILE AT THE CIA,
  • WHEN I MADE CALLS AROUND HER AS
  • SHE WAS BEING APPOINTED TO THE
  • CIA, SHE HAS GAINED RESPECT IN
  • HER THREE DECADES WORKING AT
  • THE AGENCY, SHE IS A CAREER
  • INTELLIGENCE OFFICER, SHE
  • JOINED THE CA AND -- THE CIA,
  • AND MOVED UP, SHE WAS A STATION
  • CHIEF, AND RAN SOME COVERT
  • OPERATIONS AND HUMAN
  • INTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS FOR THE
  • CIA, SO YES, THOSE FOLKS WHO
  • ARE TELLING YOU THAT SHE IS A
  • DOOR KICKER, THAT IS PRETTY
  • ACCURATE, SHE IS PRETTY TOUGH,
  • AND WELL RESPECTED PERIOD --
  • WELL RESPECTED.
  • >> PRESIDENT OBAMA CLOSED THE
  • BLACK SITES, HE COULD HAVE
  • PROSECUTED HER.
  • BUT HE DIDN'T.
  • >>> WE ARE HEARING NOW FROM REX
  • TILLERSON WHO WAS FIRED AS
  • SECRETARY OF STATE.
  • >> WE ARE GOING TO ENSURE AN
  • ORDERLY AND SMOOTH TRANSITION,
  • SIGNIFICANT POLICY AND NATIONAL
  • SECURITY CHALLENGES.
  • AS SUCH, EFFECTIVE AT THE END
  • OF THE DAY, I AM DELEGATING ALL
  • RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE OFFICE

  • MATTERS RELATED TO MY DEPARTURE,

  • ALMOST EVERYONE WITH THE DPRK
  • MAXIMUM PRESSURE CAMPAIGN, MY
  • FIRST TRIP, THE ERA OF
  • STRATEGIC PATIENTS WAS OVER,
  • AND WE COMMENCED THE STEPS TO
  • DRAMATICALLY INCREASE NOT JUST

  • OF THE SANCTIONS.
  • WE UNDERTOOK A GLOBAL CAMPAIGN
  • TO BRING PARTNERS AND ALLIES ON
  • BOARD IN EVERY COUNTRY IN THE
  • WORLD, WITH EVERY EMBASSY
  • RAISING THIS TO THE HIGHEST
  • LEVELS, AND IN EVERY MEETING I
  • HAVE HAD THROUGHOUT THE YEAR,
  • THIS HAS BEEN ON THE AGENDA TO
  • DISCUSS.>>> THE ADOPTION OF THE

  • CONDITIONS BASED MILITARY PLAN,
  • TO COMPEL THE TALIB AND TO
  • RECONCILIATION AND PEACE TALKS
  • WITH THE AFGHAN GOVERNMENT.
  • FINALLY EQUIPPED, WITH A
  • STRATEGY THEY CAN EXECUTE, AS
  • OPPOSED TO A SUCCESSION OF 16
  • ONE-YEAR STRATEGIES.
  • THIS CLEAR MILITARY COMMITMENT
  • ATTRACTED THE SUPPORT OF ALLIES
  • BROADLY, AND EQUIPPED OUR
  • DIPLOMATS WITH A WHOLE NEW
  • LEVEL OF CERTAINTY AROUND HOW
  • TO PREPARE FOR THE PEAK STOCKS
  • -- PEACE TALKS, AND MUCH WORK
  • REMAINS.
  • >>> IN SYRIA, WE DID ACHIEVE
  • IMPOTANT CEASE-FIRES AND
  • STABILIZATION, WHICH WE KNOW
  • HAS SAVED THOUSANDS OF LIVES.
  • THERE IS MORE TO BE DONE IN
  • SYRIA, PARTICULARLY IN RESPECT
  • TO ACHIEVING THE PEACE, AS WELL
  • AS STABILIZING IRAQ, AND SEEING
  • A HEALTHY GOVERNMENT INSTALLED,
  • AND MORE BROADLY, IN THE ENTIRE
  • GLOBAL CAMPAIGN TO DEFEAT ISIS.
  • NOTHING IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT
  • ALLIES AND PARTNERS, THOUGH.
  • MUCH WORK REMAINS TO ESTABLISH
  • A CLEAR VIEW OF THE NATURE OF
  • OUR FUTURE RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • CHINA.>>> HOW SHALL WE DO WITH
  • ONE ANOTHER OVER THE NEXT 50
  • YEARS, AND ASSURE A MEASURE OF
  • PROSPERITY FOR PEOPLE'S, FREE
  • OF CONFLICT BETWEEN TWO VERY
  • POWERFUL NATIONS?
  • MUCH -- PROSPERITY FOR OUR
  • PEOPLE.
  • >>> RUSSIA MUST ASSESS
  • CAREFULLY AS TO HOW ITS ACTIONS
  • ARE IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE
  • RUSSIAN PEOPLE IN THE WORLD
  • MORE BROADLY.
  • CONTINUING ON THEIR CURRENT
  • TRAJECTORY IS LIKELY TO LEAD TO

Description

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is delivering remarks after being fired by a early morning Trump tweet Tuesday.

Tillerson, whose tenure was frequently subject to speculation in the past year, found out about his ouster when the public did. Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for his trip to California that the two had disagreed on some issues, in particular, the handling of the Iran nuclear deal.
