Trump Just Challenged Rex Tillerson to An IQ Test

Despite ongoing hurricane relief, potential military conflicts, a birth control rollback and countless other pressing issues, the biggest media story of last week ended up being whether or not Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Donald Trump a moron - spoiler, he did. Trump and Tillerson met in the Oval Office on Friday, sources tell CNN, and are meeting twice Tuesday as their public feud continues. But President Moron isn't laughing. "I don't believe in undercutting people", Trump said.

During a brief exchange with reporters ahead of a meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Trump insisted: "I didn't undercut anybody".

NBC later reported that Tillerson's refusal to deny calling Trump a moron angered the president further. Tillerson also has publicly complained about the White House blocking him from making key appointments. "I'm, like, a really smart person".

NBC News said Tillerson's "moron" comment followed a meeting on Afghanistan in which Trump compared "the decision-making process on troop levels to the renovation of a high-end NY restaurant".

Mr Tillerson later denied in a hastily called press conference that he'd considered resigning but did not directly address whether he'd called his president a moron.

Later, the State Department said Tillerson never used "that type of language".

"We have two different foreign policies", Murphy said, one conducted by Tillerson and other top administration figures, the other - a competing one - from Trump's Twitter feed. "They're a little overheated right now, and I think we need to calm them down first". "And I can tell you who is going to win", Mr. Trump told Forbes.

Still, Trump claimed last week that the report was fabricated. "But it is perhaps even more so - if you leave, it's going to be very tough for you to think that you're going to be able to sell your product back into our country", Trump said of his economic-development bill.

Trump has at times appeared to undercut Tillerson's message on some of America's most sensitive national security challenges, including Iran and North Korea. Low news and reporting standards.
