Donald Trump challenges Rex Tillerson to compare IQs after alleged 'moron' jibe

Haley 'Tillerson is not going anywhere'

Trump and Tillerson are expected to meet in person for lunch alongside Defense Secretary James Mattis. "He made a joke". "The president speaks for himself", Tillerson said then. His spokeswoman said he never used such language.

Trump and Tillerson have denied the reports, though Tillerson didn't directly answer when reporters asked if he had called the president a moron.

State Department officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Trump and his administration have looked to discredit the initial NBC report, despite the fact that other outlets have since confirmed Tillerson made the comment.

Here, for example, was Trump's message to the public in May 2013: "Sorry losers and haters, but my one of the highest -and you all know it!" "That is a disaster, I mean that is just awful for the secretary and that is just bad for the Department", the official said.

Last week, NBC News reported that Tillerson called Trump a "moron" and threatened to resign during a meeting at the Pentagon in July. She also said House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland and House Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn of SC should prepare to step down.

The Washington Post cataloged several such instances in a piece published on Tuesday. "I'm not undermining", Trump replied. He added: "I also have another bill ... an economic development bill, which I think will be fantastic".

In an exclusive interview with Forbes, Trump said that reports that Tillerson once angrily called Trump a "moron" to White House staff - a claim that Tillerson has not publicly denied - probably aren't true, but that if they are, Tillerson's criticism isn't accurate.

It's not clear who is smarter without the IQ tests to prove it. Tillerson led America's leading oil and gas company ExxonMobil for almost a decade after rising through the ranks after graduating as an engineer in 1975 from the University of Texas at Austin. But places I come from, we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense.

The president launched a series of tweets on a wide range of topics Tuesday morning. "Since Congress can't get its act together on HealthCare", he wrote, "I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people - FAST". In his tweet, Trump charged that Democrats "don't care about safety for U.S.A". Clearly Mr Trump doesn't agree.

In addition to the statement about Kissinger, Trump reiterated that he planned to roll out a series of healthcare-related executive orders in the coming days that would allow for association health plans and other modified types of insurance.
