Donald Trump Signals Support for Rex Tillerson After Threatening 'IQ Test'

Must they enter the Oval Office on bended knee? "I'm not from this place, but where I come from, we don't deal with that petty nonsense".

Trump's list of demands included overhauling the country's green-card system, a crackdown on unaccompanied minors entering the country, and building his promised wall along the southern border.

But just in case, the president wants to make it clear that he takes an intellectual backseat to no one. Notably, he did not specifically deny calling Trump a moron.

"I'm not undermining", Trump told Forbes. More likely, in my view, is that Trump is annoyed at Tillerson for being insufficiently servile.

All the while, rumors are rife about Tillerson's pending ouster as reports pile up about his relationship with the president being broken beyond fix.

He occupies an office established by the Constitution and once held by Thomas Jefferson. Trump publicly slammed the reports as "fake news", and Tillerson told reporters that he remains committed to the President. Except that he didnt deny it.

Mr Tillerson's spokeswoman later said he never used such language.

Tillerson said he never considered resigning, though he didn't directly address the reported insult. If commenting like this renews chatter about the president's own secretary of state's low opinion of his intellect, so be it.

"And I can tell you who is going to win", he added.

Trump does not. Retiring Sen.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has made himself desperately unpopular in Washington by isolating himself, consolidating power, and leaving dozens of critical diplomatic posts unfilled-a toxic dynamic that current and former career civil and foreign service officers say is crippling the agency.

Trump also said he would be acting on health care soon, saying: "I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people - FAST".
