Trump wants to compare his IQ with Tillerson's

Tensions escalate after Tillerson calls Trump 'moron'

Trump challenges Tillerson to battle of IQ tests over reported 'moron' jab

President Donald Trump says he has confidence in his secretary of state, even after suggesting he's smarter than Rex Tillerson.

Following Tillerson's reported comments, calling the US President a "moron", Trump said: "I think it's fake news".

"In a few days from now, a week and a half to be exact, you'll see exactly", Trump told Huckabee.

In a rare public address on October 4, Tillerson denied the reports he considered resigning, but when asked point blank, didn't deny insulting Trump, though the State Dept. spokeswoman later denied it for him.

Sen. Chris Murphy said Sunday that a decision by President Donald Trump to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear agreement would harm the U.S. and benefit Iran.

The pair are scheduled to have lunch on Tuesday at the White House with Defence Secretary James Mattis. But while Tillerson has shouldered much of the blame for the paralysis in Foggy Bottom, it seems to be exactly what Donald Trump wants. I'm very unhappy with their attitude.

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.

The report also claimed that Vice President Mike Pence had to convince Tillerson to stay.

As whispers surrounding Tillerson reached a crescendo last week with reports that Tillerson called Trump a "moron" in front of national security staff, Kelly jumped into the fray to calm the tensions, a role in which Kelly has found himself frequently. "I'm not from this place, but where I come from, we don't deal with that petty nonsense". His spokeswoman insisted he had not used the language attributed to him.

Trump had previously undercut his secretary of state by tweeting that he was "wasting his time" by negotiating with North Korea over their nuclear arsenal. When he said it in July, he first claimed he'd signed more legislation than any other president in his first six months except FDR, who "had a major Depression to handle". In his tweet, Trump charged that Democrats "don't care about safety for U.S.A".

In Las Vegas, where he flew Wednesday to honor victims of the worst mass shooting in USA history, Trump said of Tillerson's remarks at the presser: "I'm very honored by his comments".

"With Congress the way it is, I made a decision to take it upon myself, so we'll be announcing that soon as far as the signing's concerned, but it's largely worked out", he said.
