The White House has developed a plan to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson within weeks, a senior Trump administration official has said.
"Secretary Tillerson continues to lead the State Department and the entire cabinet is focused on completing this incredibly successful first year of President Trump's administration", she said in a statement.
Tillerson, the former chief executive of Exxon Mobil, has had a testy relationship with President Trump at times.

Axios's Mike Allen and Jonathan Swan reported last month that Pompeo's stock was rising in the White House and that he was a leading contender to replace Tillerson. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, could present a wrinkle in the strategy.

Things change quickly at the Trump White House.
A source familiar with Tillerson's thinking said the secretary of state's original plan when he took the job was to leave in February.
