Few doubt that Mattis will adapt and develop a similar working relationship with incoming Secretary of State Pompeo.
In the turmoil of the Trump administration's first year, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis could always count on the steady judgment of Rex Tillerson to help him present a united front to the president.

Trump says he fired Tillerson due to a disagreement over the Iran deal

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he dismissed Rex Tillerson as secretary of state at least in part over a disagreement on how best to proceed with the Iran deal.
"When you look at the Iran deal, I thought it was terrible. He thought it was okay. I wanted to either break it or do something, he felt a little differently," Trump said.
Trump campaigned on ripping up the Iran deal, but has so far only decertified it, rather than removing the US as a party to the agreement.

President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he would replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a move that could make the US more hawkish towards North Korea.
Tillerson was thought to be a voice that cautioned Trump against striking North Korea while Pompeo has come off consistently hawkish.
The US has a tricky patch of diplomacy coming up with North Korea as Trump and Kim Jong Un prepare to meet, and if diplomacy fails, the US could get even tougher on Pyongyang.

President Donald Trump ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson one day after Tillerson explicitly blamed Russia for a chemical attack against a former Russian spy living in the UK.
While the White House called the attack "reckless" and "indiscriminate," it declined to specifically name Russia as the perpetrator.
Tillerson told reporters later in the day that the attack "clearly" came from Russia and said it was "beyond comprehension" that "an organized state" would take such an action.
