White House: Trump IQ Test Challenge To Tillerson Was A 'Joke'

Trump challenges Tillerson to battle of IQ tests over reported 'moron' jab

President Donald Trump told congressional leaders on Sunday that his hard-line immigration priorities must be enacted in exchange for extending protection from deportation to hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, many of whom were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Reacting to reports last week that Mr. Tillerson referred to Mr. Trump as a "moron", the president suggested he'd win an aptitude test in an interview with Forbes. With that said, listening to the two men speak and interact with government and the public in general, I would assume that Tillerson's IQ would be significantly higher.

President Donald Trump, after he publicly questioned his secretary of state's intelligence, said Tuesday that he has confidence in Rex Tillerson.

As he signaled that it was time for the press to take their leave, a journalist asked if he remains confident in Tillerson. I'm very unhappy with their attitude.

Speaking at a press conference in Beijing, Tillerson said the United States made it clear through its direct channels to North Korea that it was seeking peace through talks.

Aside from his challenge to Tillerson, Trump also spoke about the economy and his economic plan in the wide-ranging interview with Forbes.

In true Bhansali fashion, the sets are grand, the cinematography handsome , and no expense seems to have been spared on costumes. The fight scenes look real and believable and its only because of the mastery by which these scenes are choreographed.

All the while, rumors are rife about Tillerson's pending ouster as reports pile up about his relationship with the president being broken beyond fix. "I watch these pundits on television and, you know, they call them intellectuals".

The secretary of state left the job of disputing the story to State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, who told reporters "the secretary does not use that type of language".

Since taking office, Trump has taken a hardline position against Pyongyang, while North Korea has continued to develop its nuclear weapons and missile programs, firing intercontinental ballistic missiles that can reach US -held colonies like Guam and Micronesia, and states like Alaska and Hawaii. "At this point I think it's almost impossible to tell". In the same report, sources told the news outlet that Tillerson had called the president a "moron" or "fucking moron". One of the drivers of North Korean fears is their assessment of US foreign policy practiced on Libya.

Tillerson isn't the first to say it, and he'll be far from the last to make this point.

"We have a very good relationship", he said Saturday.
