Trump Suggests He Has a Higher IQ Than Rex Tillerson

Trump Suggests He Has a Higher IQ Than Rex Tillerson

Despite ongoing hurricane relief, potential military conflicts, a birth control rollback and countless other pressing issues, the biggest media story of last week ended up being whether or not Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Donald Trump a moron - spoiler, he did.

But in an interview with Forbes magazine published Tuesday, Trump said that if the NBC report was true, he'd compare IQ test results with Tillerson and come out the smartest.

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 USA illegally as children.

Murphy also criticized Trump for undermining the nation's diplomatic efforts, especially those of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. But while Tillerson has shouldered much of the blame for the paralysis in Foggy Bottom, it seems to be exactly what Donald Trump wants. I'm not talking about executive orders only, which are very important.

Trump also said he would be acting on health care soon, saying: "I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people - FAST".

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".

Giants WR Brandon Marshall To Have Season Ending Ankle Surgery
He sprained his left ankle in the August 21 preseason game in Cleveland and missed the regular-season opener in Dallas. A sore finger also limited Beckham after he dislocated it during the Giants Week 4 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Despite numerous other instances of Trump seemingly being miserable, isolated, or worse during his first several months in office, he swore to the Forbes reporters that he is enjoying his time as president.

"He was wasting his time", Trump said.

Murphy said Sunday in his CNN interview that while he did not think Tillerson was a good secretary of state, anyone would have a hard time with Trump's behavior.

Tillerson reaffirmed his support for Trump last week in a statement to rebut the report, but would not answer whether he ever used the word "moron" to describe the president.

Though the uneasy relationship continues, it is unlikely - for now - that Tillerson will leave, sources have told CNN, because the President and his top aides are aware of the perception that they are shedding top staff at an unnerving clip. Do they weep with joy when he reaches out a delicate hand and pats their bowed heads?

"I think the most immediate action that we need is to calm things down", Tillerson added.
