Trump offers to 'compare IQ tests' with Tillerson after 'moron' report

Trump offers to 'compare IQ tests' with Tillerson after 'moron' report

President Donald Trump jokingly challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test during an interview with Forbes magazine, but he has a tester willing to provide an exam if he wants to proceed, The Hill reported.

But responding to reporters' questions during an Oval Office meeting with Henry Kissinger on Tuesday, Trump insisted, "No, I didn't undercut anybody".

As for Tillerson's reported "moron" comment, the president said, "I think it's fake news".

"I'm not undermining", Trump said.

Trump and Tillerson, along with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, will have lunch together at the White House on Tuesday afternoon.

He went on to say: 'All indications are that the election scheduled for 26 October will be worse than the previous one'. NASA's main bone of contention is anchored on the electoral changes that were being debated by Parliament.

Tillerson is also set to play a major role in preparing Trump's monster trip to Asia next month, that will take in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Tillerson's public pushback seemed to calm the waters. "I'm, like, a really smart person".

This type of pissing match is what 14-year-old boys do on the internet, and yet, it is also pretty similar to the exact same thing the president of the United States, who is not a 14-year-old, is doing right now with the secretary of state.

"In a few days from now, a week and a half to be exact, you'll see exactly", Trump told Huckabee. The "moron" issue was not addressed, according to this official.

When Trump was asked by Forbes about whether his comments undercut his chief diplomat, he said he tweeted because Tillerson "was wasting his time".

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.

Still, Trump claimed last week that the report was fabricated.

If you've ever had the misfortune to hear words spill out of Donald Trump's mouth, or read any of his typo-ridden tweets, you've probably thought to yourself: "Wow, this guy is not very intelligent".

NBC, which shares a parent company with CNBC, stands by its reporting. "He made a joke, nothing more than that", Sanders said. While Mr Trump is quite comfortable with insult-trading, there's one topic that's clearly off-limits.
