Trump to Tillerson: Let's have an IQ contest

Tillerson Isn't the Only One Who Thinks Trump Is a Moron

If Tillerson did call him a moron, as reported, the two should "compare IQ tests", Trump told Forbes magazine in the interview that was published on Tuesday.

"I want to at least hold on to some of the traditions we have in this country about respecting the office even if at times I think the president struggles with that", she said.

Kelly skipped a planned trip with the president to Las Vegas, ostensibly to huddle with other top administration officials on how to control the Tillerson fallout.

"This is what I don't understand about Washington", Tillerson said on Wednesday.

At a hastily scheduled news conference after the report, Tillerson said he never considered leaving his job but did not deny calling the president the derogatory name.

Tillerson is also set to play a major role in preparing Trump's monster trip to Asia next month, that will take in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Trump's tense relationship with Tillerson burst into public view last week. "I'm, like, a really smart person".

Russians said to have bought $100000 of election ads on Google
As the article notes, the company has previously downplayed its involvement in Russia's potential election interference. Snap, however, told Recode that it has searched its data and found no evidence of any Russian-bought ads.

Trump, clearly scorned by reports of Tillerson's comments, told Forbes in an interview released Tuesday that he has a higher IQ than his secretary of state.

He added, "And I can tell you who is going to win". A State Department spokeswoman later said Tillerson doesn't use that kind of language.

"I don't think the 25th Amendment was designed for this situation", she said. While Mr Trump is quite comfortable with insult-trading, there's one topic that's clearly off-limits.

This is not the first time Kelly has been at odds with Trump since he was appointed chief of staff in July.

Trump and Tillerson have sent mixed signals in recent weeks about whether the US can find a diplomatic solution to increasing tensions with North Korea amid weapons tests.

NBC, which shares a parent company with CNBC, stands by its reporting.

If the United States exits the agreement, Iran would still receive sanctions relief from other nations party to the deal, and the move would also make Tehran "look like the victim", Murphy said.
