Trump asked Tillerson to resign on Friday, according to the Washington Post.

Tillerson, a former Exxon Mobile CEO, has always been rumored to be unhappy with Trump's constant undermining of the State Department's stance on issues. Pompeo, confirmed as Central Intelligence Agency director in January 2017, had served in the House as the representative from Kansas' 4th District from 2011 to 2017.

Tillerson came under scrutiny for his past business relationship with Russia President Vladimir Putin.

Tillerson had just returned from a shortened trip to Africa hours before Trump's announcement.
