Trump challenges Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to 'compare IQ tests'

Trump says Tillerson could be 'a little bit tougher'

"And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump said to Forbes magazine in an interview published hours before Trump and Tillerson were to have lunch at the White House with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. "And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump told Forbes. "If he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests".

Tillerson, though, is a "very sophisticated guy" who has a different approach than Trump did, Gingrich said, and that has made the transition a tough one.

According to the newspaper, quoting sources close to the secretary of state, Mr Trump has been irritated by Mr Tillerson's body language during meetings. But on multiple occasions, Trump and Tillerson haven't been on the same page. He has also pontificated about sparking a nuclear conflict in several bombastic ways, saying the USA military is "locked and loaded", ready to unleash "fire and fury" on the North, and said at the time that the time for "patience is over". I'm not talking about executive orders only, which are very important.

"So much of our news is just made up-FAKE!"

During his interview, Trump also touted the economy's performance during his presidency, and he previewed an economic-development bill he planned on introducing: "I also have another bill.an economic-development bill, which I think will be fantastic".


Trump's relationship with Tillerson has been especially strained every since reports that the secretary of state called the President a "moron" at a meeting at the Pentagon earlier this year.

Trump tweeted last week that Tillerson was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over that country's nuclear weapons program, writing, "Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!"

"We have an incompetent president - judged unfit by the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee - and by the way, all of the Republican senators behind closed doors acknowledge this", said Schmidt. "I'm not undermining. I think I'm actually strengthening authority". "I watch these pundits on television and, you know, they call them intellectuals". Trump claimed in one of his tweets.

"There's no question there's friction in how Kelly approaches how the White House should run and how Trump approaches it", former Clinton chief of staff Leon Panetta told CNN.
