Trump wants 'to compare IQ tests' with Tillerson

11 October 2017

In an exclusive interview with Forbes, he said he's ready to go head to head with Tillerson to compare smarts.

Trump on Saturday denied a frayed relationship with Tillerson but said he sometimes wishes Tillerson would be "tougher".

Tillerson and Defense Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis are scheduled to have lunch with the president on Tuesday. If Tillerson has any self-respect left he'll use it as an opportunity to tender his resignation.

"We've made it clear that we hope to resolve this through talks", Tillerson said.

Trump has suggested before that he was eying an executive order that would allow individuals to purchase insurance across state lines through so-called health associations, which Republican Senator Rand Paul has advocated.

Its hard to imagine Tillerson being willing to take much more of this, but other Cabinet members have made their peace with the Sun Kings demand for unctuous deference.

Hillary Clinton 'shocked and appalled' by Weinstein accusations
Taking her new book " What Happened " on the road, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Mondavi Center in UC Davis Monday night. Chastain is among the stars weighing in on the firing of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein from the company he co-founded.

Trump also had harsh words in the interview about Tillerson's work to ease relations with North Korea.

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.

"I'm generally not going to make a lot of the appointments that would normally be-because you don't need them", the President said.

Trump said Tuesday during a meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger that he didn't think he undercut Tillerson with his comment about his intelligence.

Mr Kelly reportedly struggled to contain Trump's rage after the Tillerson "moron" stories appeared last week and West Wing staff are increasingly discussing how long the retired general will last.

Tillerson denied he ever considered resigning at a news conference last week, but did not deny calling the president a moron, instead categorizing the situation as petty. One of the drivers of North Korean fears is their assessment of USA foreign policy practiced on Libya. "I think I'm actually strengthening authority". During the campaign he said he doesn't have to consult generals because he has "a very good brain" and told a rally in SC that he was highly educated and has "the best words". 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".
