In a televised interview with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee that aired Saturday night, Trump also wouldn't say if the United States was planning to get rid of the Iran deal. "And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump told Forbes.
Asked by reporters if he undercut Tillerson by proposing an IQ test, he replied, "No, I didn't undercut anybody".
"This is what I don't understand about Washington", Tillerson said on Wednesday.
President Donald Trump, after he publicly questioned his secretary of state's intelligence, said Tuesday that he has confidence in Rex Tillerson.
While Trump has favored rapid-fire insults over in-depth intellect during his political rise to power, he does consider himself quite a thinker.
"He made a joke, nothing more than that", Sanders said.
A Forbes interview, published on Tuesday, showcased Trump's response to reports that Tillerson called him a "moron".
Tillerson has distanced himself from some of Trump's foreign policy statements, most notably the president's taunts against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and whether the US should negotiate with Pyongyang to curb its nuclear weapons development.
"Sir, we didn't need you to verify that he called you a ' moron, ' " Ruhle said. The "moron" issue was not addressed, according to this official. Currently, 48 ambassadorships remain open; of the 23 assistant secretary positions at the State Department, only two are filled, with the remainder either vacant or held by acting officials. Trumpclaimed in one of his tweets.
Trump was aware before the report earlier this month that Tillerson had referred to him as a "moron" at the Pentagon this summer, a source familiar with the conversation told CNN, but it's unclear whether Trump discussed the remark with Tillerson.
"We have an incompetent president - judged unfit by the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee - and by the way, all of the Republican senators behind closed doors acknowledge this", said Schmidt.
That includes a permanent assistant secretary of state for east Asian and Pacific affairs and an ambassador in South Korea, even as Trump threatens military action against Pyongyang and diplomats struggle to resolve the impasse.
"Policy didn't work!" Trump said in a Twitterpost. "Your stock market is at an all-time high", he said.
