Shortly after Tillerson's comments, Trump took to Twitter to say he thought Tillerson was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea. It was after that session that Tillerson, in a private conversation with fellow USA officials, exasperatedly called the President a "moron", a comment that sparked new questions about the two men's relationship.

"I checked", Tillerson said.

News reported that Tillerson made the comment over the summer and Tillerson has not denied it but rather said the whole discussion around the report is "petty".

Tillerson did not deny it last week, and despite how much Jake Tapper pressed him on it this morning, Tillerson refused to "dignify the question". "These are the destructive games of this town".

Corker told the Washington Post in an interview that Trump had undercut Rex Tillerson's efforts to enlist China in reining in North Korea's nuclear program by denigrating the diplomat.

On the day of the report's release, Tillerson held a press conference to reaffirm his loyalty to the president. "But it's the first part" - the "castration" of Tillerson - "that I am most exercised about".

"People in this town get very nervous and get very uptight about having to address serious issues by making decisions", Tillerson said, adding the president is trying to do that in his "very unique style".

Tillerson described Trump's work as aggressively "forcing action" on foreign policy and said his goal is to change the status quo.

"I'm not playing", Tillerson told Tapper, after Tapper asked about the alleged "moron" comment.

"US Republican senator Bob Corker stepped up his public feud with Donald Trump on Friday, saying the presidents undermining of his secretary of state was like castrating him in public".
