With the news that Rex Tillerson is out at the State Department, should we celebrate the naming of Mike Pompeo as the new secretary of state? A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the issue.
From The Washington Post: What can you say about a person who was the least qualified secretary of state ever?
"It appears that it clearly came from Russia," Rex Tillerson said about the deadly nerve-gas attack in Britain. His statement infuriated the White House. https://t.co/Plsa90GCti— The New York Times (@nytimes) March 14, 2018
From Bloomberg: Trump’s foreign policy hasn’t gone to hell in a handbasket yet, but it’s still early.
Whenever Secretary Tillerson’s successor goes into meetings with foreign leaders, his credibility will be diminished as someone who could be here today and gone tomorrow. https://t.co/DdyLCbpUiG— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) March 13, 2018
From USA Today: It was time for Tillerson to go; Pompeo is a good choice for the State Department.
