Tillerson fails to thank Trump after firing

Tillerson fails to thank Trump after firing

Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Rex Tillerson thanked the American people, his State Department staff and the nation's extensive network of diplomats in an at times emotional farewell statement on Tuesday.

One person he did not thank: President Donald Trump, the man who nominated him for the job but abruptly told the world of his ouster in a tweet on Tuesday morning.

The only mention of Trump came at the top of the statement when Tillerson mentioned that the President had called him at "a little after noontime from Air Force One" to talk about his ouster. That call came hours after Trump told the world he was replacing the former oil tycoon with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Tillerson told reporters he is delegating all his authorities at the end of Tuesday and that his tenure will officially end on March 31.
