State Department Under Secretary Steve Goldstein has been fired from the state department just hours after his boss, now former-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. During his time at the State Department, Goldstein had became a spokesman for Tillerson.

CBS News reports that the White House called Goldstein this morning to tell him that he was “no longer needed.”

After his boss was fired this morning, Goldstein released a statement which read: “The Secretary had every intention of staying because of the critical progress made in national security. He will miss his colleagues at the Department of State and the foreign ministers he has worked with throughout the world. The secretary did not speak to the president and is unaware of the reason.”

Goldstein is also the one who told CNN that Tillerson learned about his firing from the President’s tweet.

Tillerson was fired from his role at the State Department this morning, and President Trump has announced that he intends to nominate CIA director Mike Pompeo to replace Tillerson.
