Trump challenges Tillerson to battle of IQ tests over reported 'moron' jab

Trump challenges Tillerson to battle of IQ tests over reported 'moron' jab

President Donald Trump said in an interview published Tuesday that if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did call him a moron, they could "compare IQ tests" and show he was the smarter person. But on multiple occasions, Trump and Tillerson haven't been on the same page.

But when the president is asked if he and Tillerson agree on North Korea, Trump says he has "a little bit of a different attitude on North Korea than other people might have".

Both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were reportedly furious about the report. 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.

Brown also said that Trump could potentially qualify for Mensa membership even if he bombed on his Mensa-issued IQ test, so long as he could provide evidence of exceptional test scores on other tests, including the LSAT, GMAT, and the Miller Analogies Test. "And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump said.

The "world's oldest worldwide IQ society" offered its services after the USA president responded to claims that Tillerson had called him a "f--ing moron".

Though the uneasy relationship continues, it is unlikely - for now - that Tillerson will leave, sources have told CNN, because the President and his top aides are aware of the perception that they are shedding top staff at an unnerving clip.

Trump says he listens to everyone "but ultimately my attitude is the one that matters". I think he's the weakest secretary of state we've had in the post-war area.
