President Trump challenges his own secretary of state to compare "IQ tests"

Haley 'Tillerson is not going anywhere'

Haley 'Tillerson is not going anywhere'

We still have more than three years with President Trump at the helm, and sadly the question is no longer whether or not our commander-in-chief is a moron; it's how much damage will he do before he's out of office.

Reacting to the speculation, Paddy Power Politics has priced former Exxon Mobil CEO as the favourite to leave the White House, ahead of Attorney General Jeff Sessions (current price - 11/4). Tillerson didn't deny using the word in reference to Trump, but did make clear that all between the two was well - that for those in the media looking to report on animosity, to turn around, go home, there was nothing there to see.

"The secretary does not use that type of language", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said last week.

Trump added in the Forbes interview that Tillerson was "wasting his time" when Tillerson appeared to be reopening talks with North Korea.

NBC News correspondent and MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, one of four reporters who worked on the Tillerson story, offered an impassioned defense of her team's reporting last week, and went after Trump specifically after he complained the network didn't verify their report with him.

"And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump said to Forbes magazine.

Throughout the interview, Trump boasted about several aspects of his presidency while talking about his economic development plans.

"I'm not undermining", Trump told Forbes.

The latest outburst came as he launched another series of tweets on a wide range of topics on Tuesday morning. In his tweet, Mr Trump claimed Democrats "don't care about safety for USA".

Mr Trump said on Sunday there needed to be security enhancements - and the border wall he has demanded - before he would sign on to a bill restoring a programme that shields from deportation young people brought to the USA illegally when they were children.

The president also suggested the USA change its tax laws to punish organizations like the NFL if members are "disrespecting" the national anthem or flag.
