Trump Insults Former Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson
President Donald Trump called former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson insulting names in a tweet after Tillerson publicly called Trump "undisciplined." Business Insider reports Trump called Tillerson "dumb as a rock," following a speech given by Tillerson Thursday night in which he said that the president often asked him to break the law.
Trump wrote on Twitter Friday, "Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him.
His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn't have the mental capacity needed.
He was dumb as a rock and I couldn't get rid of him fast enough." In his speech, Tillerson also said it was a "challenge" to move from the "disciplined, highly-process oriented" culture at Exxon to work for someone "who is pretty undisciplined, doesn't like to read, doesn't read briefing reports, doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things."
