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

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

The State Department has denied Tillerson ever made the comments.

Trump issued the challenge in an interview with Forbes magazine, when asked about reports that Tillerson called him a "moron" after a classified briefing this summer.

President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met in the Oval Office on Friday and are meeting twice on Tuesday as their public feud stemming from allegations Tillerson called Trump a "moron" continues. "But if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests", Trump told Forbes in an interview conducted late last week.

Mr Tillerson has since said he never considered resigning, although he did not directly address questions regarding calling the US President a "moron" - his spokeswoman later said Mr Tillerson never used such language. Tillerson scores 120, while Trump's is just a crudely done kid's drawing of the president in a truck.

Tension has been simmering between the pair for some time over North Korea, with Trump's aggressive rhetoric at odds with Tillerson's more measured approach.

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

The "world's oldest global IQ society" offered its services after the U.S. president responded to claims that Tillerson had called him a "f--ing moron".

Colbert then lays into the president's intelligence in earnest, citing reports which claim that the White House staff have to be careful with what they tell Trump for fear of his impulsiveness. "I think I'm actually strengthening authority".
