CNN)After months of speculation, President Donald Trump has announced that he will nominate CIA director Mike Pompeo to replace Rex Tillerson as his new secretary of state. 

Trump praised Pompeo on Tuesday saying he was "always on the same wavelength" -- something that he could not say for his now former chief diplomat Tillerson. 

"I have worked with Mike Pompeo for quite some time, tremendous energy, tremendous intellect," Trump told reporters. "We are always on the same wavelength. The relationship has always been good and that is what I need as secretary of state."
