Trump suggests his IQ is higher than Tillerson's after reported 'moron' jab

Murphy said Sunday in his CNN interview that while he did not think Tillerson was a good secretary of state, anyone would have a hard time with Trump's behavior. While Fihn later said that she was joking in response to the Tillerson news, she reiterated, "I think that the election of President Donald Trump has made a lot of people very uncomfortable with the fact that he alone can authorize the use of nuclear weapons".

It's classic Trump - a slightly less juvenile version of the "I guarantee you there's no problem" retort Mr Trump snapped off during a Republican debate, when Senator Marco Rubio questioned the size of his, er, manhood.

Looked upon as the highest profile member of the Trump cabinet, United States media reports that Tillerson's relationship with Trump is now at "breaking point". Tillerson has publicly complained about the slow pace of getting his assistant secretaries and other deputies nominated and confirmed.

Yet in a new interview with Forbes magazine published Tuesday, Trump said that if Tillerson "did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests".

Tillerson called Trump a "moron" and considered leaving the administration, according to an NBC News report earlier this month. His spokeswoman insisted he had not used the language attributed to him.

Trump has at times appeared to undercut Tillerson's message on some of America's most sensitive national security challenges, including Iran and North Korea.

Tillerson's departure would be a major blow to those hoping to temper Trump and stop what Corker described as "the path to World War III". "But they think I did a great job".

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

At a news conference after the NBC report dropped, Tillerson slammed the allegation that he called Trump a moron as 'petty.' Yet, he did not refute the charge.

Tom Price, Trump's first Health and Human Services secretary, resigned in late September over a private plane scandal, and since becoming President, Trump has dismissed several top communication aides, a chief of staff and a chief strategist.
