Donald Trump: Rex Tillerson 'Lazy' and 'Dumb as a Rock'

Rex Tillerson on Trump ‘Undisciplined,’ ‘doesn’t like to read’ and tries to do illegal things

Rex Tillerson, the former USA secretary of state, broke his silence Thursday calling his former boss, President Donald Trump, "undisciplined" and saying that he was given to violating the law.

Rex Tillerson has said the president is "undisciplined" and 'doesn't like to read.

Tillerson blamed his strained relationship with Trump on the fact they did not share a "common value system" and were "obviously starkly different in our styles". "And I would have to say to him, 'Mr".

Tillerson once quipped he'd go to his grave without having a social media account and instead relied on aides to print Trump's tweets while serving as the top USA diplomat.

Mr Trump said in response that Mr Tillerson "didn't have the mental capacity needed for the job" and that he "couldn't get rid of him fast enough". "I think he grew exhausted of me being the guy every day who told him he can't do that and let's talk about what he can do".

Roberts, for his part, explained that not only had Tillerson reportedly called Trump a "moron" - some sources said that Tillerson called him an "f-ing moron".

"So often, the president would say, 'Here's what I want you to do, and here's how I want you to do it, ' " Tillerson said at a fundraiser for the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, in his first public remarks about his truncated tenure since he was let go in March. "It violates the law, it violates treaty, '" Tillerson said.

Tillerson teed off on Trump Thursday night, saying the commander-in-chief didn't like to read briefing papers and had to be talked out of taking actions that would be illegal.

Tillerson was sacked in March.

Trump praised Tillerson's successor, the brusque former congressman and Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo, for "doing a great job".

That approach was world's away from Tillerson's standard - the "disciplined, highly process-oriented Exxon Mobil corporation", he said.

Trump also used Twitter to announce Tillerson's firing and, in a final indignity, the White House made it known that the nation's top diplomat was on the toilet when he learned the news. "Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!"

NBC News reported in October 2017 that Tillerson, then still secretary of state, called Trump a "moron" in a meeting.

Tillerson also dismissed the president's favorite communications tool Twitter, saying, "It troubles me that the American people seem to want to know so little about issues, that they are satisfied with a 128 characters".
