Speculation that Tillerson would leave the administration has been mounting for months. Trump and Tillerson have publicly differed in their statements about issues like North Korea and the recent poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in the United Kingdom.

Shortly after the announcement, Trump’s hometown paper updated its “Survivor”-themed cover to indicate Tillerson was the latest to go. The cover depicts departed White House aides with red X’s over their faces.

Tillerson said his term as the nation's top diplomat will end at midnight on March 31. Until then, Tillerson is delegating his responsibilities to Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan.
