Trump to replace most top management at State Department
Trump administration chooses to replace senior State Department diplomatsI suspect that Trump and his team want people with no ties to Clinton or Kerry. The State Department has been seen as hostile territory by many Republicans. So far Trump has not indicated who he will replace them with.
When Rex Tillerson is confirmed as secretary of state next week, he will face an unusual leadership vacuum after several career Foreign Service officers were informed that they will not be asked to stay on in senior or sensitive posts that are under direct White House control.
