President Trump challenges his own secretary of state to compare "IQ tests"

President Trump challenges his own secretary of state to compare

Is Donald Trump really a "moron", as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reportedly alleged - or is Trump actually smarter than his own top diplomat gives him credit for?

A senior State Department official says Friday's meeting was last-minute and was related to the Middle East. Trump then said this in an interview with Forbes: "I think it's fake news he said that but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests".

Mr Tillerson has since said he never considered resigning, although he did not directly address questions regarding calling the US President a "moron" - his spokeswoman later said Mr Tillerson never used such language.

Trump, clearly scorned by reports of Tillerson's comments, told Forbes in an interview released Tuesday that he has a higher IQ than his secretary of state. "And I can tell you who is going to win".

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein to seek re-election
Asked about a poll that half of California voters don't think she should run, she added: "Oh look". Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has announced today that she will seek a sixth term in the U.S.

Tillerson speaks on behalf of the president and the country.

The report came just days after Trump upbraided the former ExxonMobil CEO for "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea.

Brown declined to say whether either party has taken an admission test before, but did name several former United States presidents, including Jimmy Carter, Bush Senior and Bill Clinton, whose academic backgrounds and non-political careers "would have propelled them into Mensa".

If you're looking to throw down some more cash on US politics, Bovada is also offering betting lines on whether White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will stay in his job through 2017, which political party will win the 2020 election, and if Twitter will suspend President Trump's account this year.
