Donald Trump is not happy with his Secretary of State, with the president beveling Rex Tillerson is just "too establishment" in his thinking. A new report has since been released naming who could be the top name to replace the former CEO of ExxonMobil, with the White House remaining quiet about the issue in question.

Trump and Tillerson

Not long after Donald Trump pulled off the shocking upset over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November to become the 45th President of the United States it was only a matter of time before he decided on who would surround him in the White House.

As the former host of "The Apprentice" continue to nominate members to his cabinet, one name that created controversy was Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State. Tillerson had no previous experience other than meeting with international officials as part of his job as CEO of ExxonMobil. Tillerson served as CEO of the oil giant from 2006 until 2016, and created his own controversy by having a more than cordial relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. However, while Trump was initially supportive of Tillerson, a report in Axios, and later Mediate, on August 28 tells a different story with the president looking to possibly make a major change in the near future.

According to Jonathan Swan of Axios, Donald Trump appears fed up with Rex Tillerson, with fellow Axios reporter Mike Allen writing that the president "has been growing increasingly frustrated with his Secretary of State." Swan reports that a source close to the situation quotes the president as saying, "Rex just doesn’t get it, he’s totally establishment in his thinking." Not stopping there, the report goes on to note that Trump is "getting more and more fed up with Tillerson."

Possible replacement

With Rex Tillerson reportedly on the ropes, many have wondered who could take his place in leading the State Department.

In the aforementioned Axios report, former South Carolina governor and current U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is the name that is currently at the top of the list. While Trump has not spoken publicly about the issue with Tillerson, his potential departure would only continue in a long line of recent exits from the administration.

Recently former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus left the Trump team, with former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon also being asked to resign earlier this month. With the pressure mounting on the commander in chief, Trump's approval rating is sitting at just 35 percent in the most recent round of polling.
