Tillerson Fired Over Rogue Bid to Save Iran Nuke Deal

Rex Tillerson

The abrupt firing Tuesday of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson follows months of infighting between the State Department and White House over efforts by Tillerson to save the Iran nuclear deal and ignore President Donald Trump's demands that the agreement be fixed or completely scrapped by the United States, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

In the weeks leading up to Tillerson's departure, he had been spearheading efforts to convince European allies to agree to a range of fixes to the nuclear deal that would address Iran's ongoing ballistic missile program and continued nuclear research.

  1. Putting America first gets you fired and carrying the water for an insignificant nation on the other side of the world gets you made Sec State. So much for MAGA.
