Trump-Tillerson Relationship On Thin Ice As He Attacks The Secretary Again
Donald Trump decided to attack his Secretary of State again on Saturday, telling reporters that he wished Rex Tillerson would “be a little tougher.”
Trump said that he and Tillerson have a good relationship, but then he added a few things about the Secretary of State he didn’t quite like.
“We have a very good relationship,” Trump said Saturday. “We disagree on a couple of things, sometimes I’d like him to be a little bit tougher.”
“But other than that we have a very good relationship.”

Recent reports have stated that Trump’s relationship with Tillerson has been a little rocky lately. NBC News had reported earlier this week that Tillerson called Trump a “moron.”
“The vice president has never had to persuade me to remain as secretary of State because I have never considered leaving,” Tillerson said Wednesday, denying reports.
Tillerson did not deny that he called Trump a “moron” but the State Department denied the report at a later press conference.
