Conversely, CNN also reported that Tillerson said that he only learned he was out from Trump's tweet Tuesday morning.
Sergie Skripal and his daughter, Tulia, were poisoned with a nerve agent developed in Russia last Sunday and remain in critical condition. Prime Minister Theresa May responded by...
