Trump challenges Secretary of State to IQ test after 'moron' dig

In an interview with Forbes magazine released Tuesday, President Donald Trump suggested he has a higher IQ than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"I want to at least hold on to some of the traditions we have in this country about respecting the office even if at times I think the president struggles with that", she said. But the secretary of state notably did not deny calling the President a "moron" and privately, sources tell CNN, Trump fumed at his secretary of state's comment.

The former Republican strategist was on MSNBC Tuesday to talk about Trump's decision to breathe new life into the reports about his tense relationship with the secretary of state.

Trump also told Lane that he didn't see a need to appoint the hundreds of State Department positions that are now unfilled. Tillerson also has publicly complained about the White House blocking him from making key appointments. Regardless of who would win that competition - Trump implied he win - it would do nothing to answer the question of who is smarter. The "moron" issue was not addressed, according to this official.

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". His spokeswoman later said he never used such language.

Some are seeing his approach as a roundabout way of pressuring Beijing into taking more definite action. In an interview on the Trinity Broadcasting Network on Saturday evening, U.S.

Still, last week Trump told reporters he has "total confidence" in his secretary of state.

"I don't think the 25th Amendment was designed for this situation", she said. But on multiple occasions, Trump and Tillerson haven't been on the same page.

The newest Nobel Peace Prize victor, Beatrice Fihn of International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), pulled no punches by calling the president a moron directly.

If there's nothing else that those anxious about national security can agree on, it's that President Trump is too hot tempered, impulsive and shallow-thinking to be in charge of our defense.

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".
