Donald Trump has challenged Rex Tillerson to “compare IQ tests” if the Secretary of State did indeed call him a “moron”, as has been reported. President Trump has dismissed the reports as “fake news”, but claimed that he would in a battle of intelligence with Tillerson. The two have reportedly had a tense relationship that went public when an NBC News story claimed Vice President Mike Pence had to talk the Secretary of State out of resigning this summer and that Mr Tillerson had described the president as a “moron.” MSNBC anchorwoman Stephanie Ruhle, who broke the story, was later quoted as saying: “My source didn’t just say he called him a moron. He said he called him an f***ing moron.”

“If he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win.” – Donald Trump
