Senate Approves Mike Pompeo As Trump's Next Secretary Of State

The Senate has approved CIA Director Mike Pompeo to become President Donald Trump's second secretary of state on Thursday.

The vote to approved Pompeo was 57-42 on Thursday.

President Donald Trump fired his first Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a Twitter message in March. 

He tapped Pompeo, a former Kansas Republican Congressman, to take the job after the two developed a close relationship during his tenure as the chief intelligence officer, during which Pompeo personally delivered the daily briefings at the White House.
