The Hill reports:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo quipped on Monday that he intends to stay in his role until President Trump “tweets” him out of a job. Pompeo was asked at a speaking engagement in Kansas how he liked being secretary of State and how long he planned to stay on the job.
“I’m going to be there until he tweets me out of office,” Pompeo said with a chuckle, eliciting laughs from others in the room. “Which I’m not counting on, at least today,” he added.
Trump, a prodigious Twitter user, announced the firing of Pompeo’s predecessor, Rex Tillerson, in a tweet shortly after it was reported by The Washington Post.
