The New York Post again updated its “Survivor” cover with a red “X” over Tillerson’s face.

“Another one bites the dust,” the paper tweeted.

The New York Post first published the cover depicting Trump’s White House as the reality show “Survivor” in July, featuring the faces of his top advisers and officials.

“He will do a fantastic job!” he tweeted. “Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service.”

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.

It was reported late last year that Tillerson had referred to Trump as a “moron,” prompting Trump to challenge his State Department head to an IQ test.

The move comes just after Tillerson finished a diplomatic trip to Africa and said that the U.S. is mulling a lifting the travel ban in place on Chad.
