Following the sudden sack of US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson by President Donald Trump, the reason for his sack has been revealed. According to Trump, Tillerson spoke ill about Russia President, Vladimir Putin despite his warning. He said;
“I just fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Yesterday Rex said something mean about Putin.
“I’ve warned every American that under no circumstances was anyone allowed to criticize Putin or Russia (even if they committed acts of war against us). Mike Pompeo will replace Rex,”
Meanwhile, prior to his sack Rex Tillerson was in Nigeria yesterday and met with President Buhari.
