Tillerson 'Moron' Comment Followed Trump's Call for Massive Nuclear Buildup

According to NBC, Trump's comments surprised officials - including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was overheard calling Trump a "moron" shortly after the meeting adjourned.

His retaliation came in a Forbes magazine interview published yesterday.

As for Tillerson's reported "moron" comment, the president said, "I think it's fake news. And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump said. Trump also told Lane that he didn't see a need to appoint the hundreds of State Department positions that are now unfilled.

"I'm not undermining", Trump told Forbes, adding that he has "total confidence" in Tillerson. "I mean, you look at some of these agencies, how massive they are, and it's totally unnecessary". Tillerson scores 120, while Trump's is just a crudely done kid's drawing of the president in a truck.

Both Trump and Tillerson graduated from university with Bachelors of Science, majoring in economics and civil engineering respectively.

"No, I didn't undercut anybody". At various points, Trump wondered aloud why nukes would be made if they were never to be used, wouldn't rule out nuking Europe, said that his strategy with regards to nuclear weapons is "to be unpredictable".

Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis are scheduled to have lunch with Trump Tuesday.

Tillerson addressed the story last week that also stated he was close to resigning last summer. I'm enjoying it. We're accomplishing a lot.

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. "I think I'm actually strengthening authority". Trump publicly slammed the reports as "fake news", and Tillerson told reporters that he remains committed to the President.

"The president certainly never implied that the secretary of state was not incredibly intelligent".
