Rex Tillerson is making an unscheduled statement today, and it is likely that the secretary of state will address his current relationship with President Trump.
Earlier today, NBC released a report with new information about Tillerson and Trump’s tumultuous relationship over the past few months. The report said Tillerson threatened to resign from his post in July, and that he called Trump a “moron” during a meeting with administration officials at the Pentagon.
There have been other signs of division between Trump and Tillerson recently, the latest being the president’s suggestion that the secretary of state is wasting his time negotiating for a peaceful diplomatic solution on North Korea.
Meanwhile, Trump has taken shots at the “fake news” media again today, and based on his latest tweet, seems to be refuting NBC’s report about Tillerson:
NBC news is #FakeNews and more dishonest than even CNN. They are a disgrace to good reporting. No wonder their news ratings are way down!
