Rex Tillerson Once Again Does Not Deny Calling President Trump a Moron

"The president wants to know what I think", Tillerson said on CBS's "Face the Nation". Although the president's tweets "raise tension in the region" and are "irresponsible", Corker is most concerned about what he characterized as the "castration" of Tillerson. "And he listens to those views", he added. I'm an unconventional pick as secretary of state.

"Yes, sometimes he changes his mind".

Donald Trump does not believe diplomatic efforts with North Korea are a waste of time and talks will continue "until the first bomb drops", Rex Tillerson has told CNN.

"You can not publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice", Corker told The Post.

"He continued, ".Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!" Tillerson reportedly called Trump a "moron".

It is a slight softening of rhetoric from the Trump administration, with the president himself previously taking a hard line on North Korea and promising to respond to threats from the country with "fire and fury". However, he has yet to deny whether he called the commander-in-chief a moron.

"This is a town that seems to relish gossip, rumor, innuendo, and they feed on it". And they feed on it. "I don't work that way and I don't feel that way".

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen.

Senator Corker made the claim in a Washington Post interview last week amid a public spat with the president.

"When you publicly castrate your secretary of state, you take that off the table".

Tillerson pushed back on Corker's comments on Sunday, telling Tapper, "I checked, I'm fully intact". Bob Corker's comments suggesting Trump's foreign policy statements, like the ones he's posted on Twitter, "castrate" the secretary's diplomatic efforts.

Tillerson's comments on Sunday come amid soaring tensions between the United States and North Korea following a series of weapons tests by Pyongyang and a war of words between the two countries' leaders.
