But in an interview with Forbes magazine published Tuesday, Trump said that if the NBC report was true, he’d compare IQ test results with Tillerson and come out the smartest.
If you didn’t get enough of the Trump-Huckabee interview, Colbert started off the show by splicing himself in for Huckabee and asking his own questions.
Reporters asked Trump over the weekend about his relationship with Tillerson.
If Trump actually believes there is a viable military solution to the North Korea problem, hes even crazier and more unsafe than I thought.
It started a week ago with an NBC News report on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s frustrations in the Trump administration. Trump undercut him with a tweet, saying Tillerson was wasting his time..
Also on Tuesday, Gingrich said it is vital for Republicans to push through tax reform legislation if they expect to win next fall’s elections, and the matter is “much, much more important” than healthcare.
During his interview, Trump also touted the economy’s performance during his presidency, and he previewed an economic-development bill he planned on introducing: “I also have another bill.an economic-development bill, which I think will be fantastic”.
I doubt the president has forgotten or forgiven Tillersons reaction to Trumps deeply offensive many sides analysis of Charlottesville. Among other things, we learned that Tillerson referred to Donald Trump as a “moron” after a July 20 meeting at the Pentagon with members of president’s national security team and Cabinet officials. His spokeswoman insisted he had not used the language attributed to him.
But the President’s frequent interventions into Mr Tillerson’s area have left many wondering how long his commitment will last.
“I don’t think the 25th Amendment was designed for this situation”, she said.
US President Trump has challenged his secretary of state to “compare IQ tests”, in a potential rift that emerged last week. He also copped a backhander from his president today. One of the drivers of North Korean fears is their assessment of USA foreign policy practiced on Libya.
If Washington policymakers believe that making life harder for the North Koreans is going to force them to submit to USA pressure and give up the only deterrent they believe can ensure their survival, we doom our policy to failure before it even begins-an increasingly recurrent theme.
