People Trump Fired or Threatened to Fire, People Who Resigned (Pt 1 of 5)
#DonaldTrump on Tuesday, March 13, said he'd replaced his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, with CIA Director #MikePompeo, adding to a series of high-profile exits from the #WhiteHouse. With that in mind, I've listed all the "exits" I could think of. With this list, I'm surprised that our country is still standing.
