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.
