The president of the USA fired State Secretary Rex Tillerson. Mr Trump published a post informing it on his Twitter.

SNN informs Tillerson found out about such decision on Twitter. However, Washington Post published the information that the former state secretary got to know about his dismissal last Friday. That is why Tillerson cancelled his visit to Africa.

Mr Trump stated it was his decision and he did not discuss it with Mr Tillerson.

There is an opinion that diplomat’s accusation of Russia concerning Skrypal poisoning was a key point in his dismissal.
