Trump, Tillerson had disagreements, yet replacement with Pompeo not true, State Dept says

State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said late Thursday that rumors of Rex Tillerson's imminent replacement with CIA chief Mike Pompeo are not true, also admitting the top diplomat had disagreements with President Donald Trump "when it comes to policy."

"Mr. Tillerson remains Secretary of State and serves at the pleasure of the President," Nauert said.

Nauert also pointed to the White House statement, which said the government does not mull any personnel changes.
