This week, over on the Election Central Web site, the main story provides more information on the latest news and speculation surrounding changing roles in President Trump’s administration and leadership team.

Several sources close to the White House said last week that President Trump was planning to fire Secretary of State Rex Tillerson within the next few months and replace him with CIA director Mike Pompeo. Tillerson has been on thin ice ever since the news reported that he and the president were not agreeing on the correct diplomatic direction to take in the State Department. Tillerson has also been criticized for resisting Trump’s policy positions and for cutting staff positions at the State Department. At the same time, however, others argue that Tillerson has been a stabilizing force in Trump’s administration, and say that he is needed in the State Department now more than ever as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea continue to escalate.
