Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday shared some harsh words about President Donald Trump in an interview at the MD Anderson Cancer Center.

President Donald Trump has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo has been named as his replacement. Trump made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday morning, although Tillerson was informed of Trump's decision on Friday.

Cuba Thinks It Knows What Caused Brain Damage in Havana-Based U.S. Diplomats Last Year and We Don't Believe Them for a Second
For months, United States diplomats in Cuba have suffered an ongoing range of symptoms from a mysterious source, straining relations between the two governments. The latest diagnosis includes abnormalities to some of the diplomats’ white brain matter, which affects cognitive function, sensory and motor skills. However, this discovery only further divides scientists on the issue of what caused the patients’ symptoms.
Discovery of Damage to White Brain Matter
Since August 2016, American diplomats—and some Canadians—have experienced unusual health problems while stationed at the Cuban Embassy. The symptoms included nausea, dizziness, headaches, difficulty balancing, trouble concentration and recalling words, ringing in the ears, permanent hearing loss, and speech and vision problems. Patients have also been diagnosed with brain injuries such as swelling, concussion, and most recently damage to white brain matter.
NBC is reporting that on July 20, Donald Trump held a meeting with his foreign policy advisors during which he was briefed on the drawdown of nuclear weapons around the globe. After seeing a slide that demonstrated that the U.S. nuclear arsenal had declined from 32,000 warheads at its peak in the 1960s to just 4,000 today, Trump declared his interest in ramping the program back up, which would amount to increasing our nuclear stockpile by nearly 10 times current levels.
It was after this meeting broke up, administration officials report, that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the President "a moron."
Exxon Mobil has asked the Trump administration for a waiver excluding them from Russian sanctions. They would use the waiver to continue with plans to work with the Russian government oil company, Rosneft, to drill in the Black Sea.
The request is raising questions. The original project began back when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was the CEO of Exxon Mobil. During his tenure as CEO, Tillerson received the Russian Order of Friendship from Vladimir Putin for his role in forging the agreement.
