Trump says Tillerson could be tougher, but they have good relationship

Rex Tillerson addresses rumors on quitting

President Donald Trump said in an interview published Tuesday that if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did call him a moron, they could "compare IQ tests" and show he was the smarter person.

"I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests". Tillerson scores 120, while Trump's is just a crudely done kid's drawing of the president in a truck.

"I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man", Mr Trump tweeted earlier this month, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

When asked if any American president or Cabinet member has ever taken a Mensa admissions test before, Brown pointed out that while the group can confirm membership, it doesn't release who's actually taken the brain-busting exam.

Turkey, US discuss visa crisis in phone talks: state media
Washington has dismissed claims it was involved as a ludicrous conspiracy theory and Gulen himself denies any link to the plot. "Today, Serbia considers Turkey as its friend".

Brown declined to say whether either party has taken an admission test before, but did name several former U.S. presidents, including Jimmy Carter, Bush Senior and Bill Clinton, whose academic backgrounds and non-political careers "would have propelled them into Mensa".

Trump on Saturday denied a frayed relationship with Tillerson but said he sometimes wishes Tillerson would be "tougher". Also around this time, Trump made a politicized speech to the Boy Scouts of America, which Tillerson once led.

The New York Times writer was on to discuss North Korea's impact on global diplomacy, though the conversation eventually moved on to Trump's feud with Bob Corker. I think he's the weakest secretary of state we've had in the post-war area.
