In a new interview with Forbes, Trump has challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to “compare IQ tests.”
Trump stated, “I think it’s fake news, but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests.” He continued, “And I can tell you who is going to win.”
Earlier this month, there were reports that Tillerson called Trump a “fucking moron” and was “on the verge of resigning.”
However, in a press conference Tillerson had last week, he denied he was considering to leave.
In the same press conference, he didn’t deny the fact that he called Trump a “moron.” But the State Department later came out to say the report was false.
Last week, Trump tweeted that Tillerson never threatened to resign and called the report “fake news” and wanted NBC News to apologize.
Rex Tillerson never threatened to resign. This is Fake News put out by @NBCNews. Low news and reporting standards. No verification from me.
