Trump says Tillerson could be tougher, but they have good relationship

Trump says Tillerson could be tougher, but they have good relationship”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is at odds with the USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, adding to the drama of what has already been a tumultuous week for the top U.S. diplomat, according to a New Yorker report on Friday.

The exclusive from NBC News was still annoying Trump enough on Thursday that he devoted a pair of tweets bashing the "fake news" - and once again called out the network by name.

Tillerson on Wednesday said he had never considered resigning and was committed to Trump's agenda, but failed to address whether he had referred to the president as a "moron", as NBC reported.

In spite of Tillerson infamous inability to fully staff the State Department and Trump's tense relationship with China amid his threats to North Korea, Haley is "seen as the most effective diplomat in the crisis", the New Yorker reported.

Corker also declined to say whether Tillerson may have considered resigning.

Tillerson sidestepped whether he had called the president a "moron" at a July meeting with national security advisers - though a State Department spokesperson later denied that he had. Tillerson would prefer to fix the situation without conflict, yet Trump has been more aggressive and quick to anger in his handling of the Hermit Kingdom. "It is #FakeNews. They should issue an apology to AMERICA!"

The spokeswoman pointed to comments NBC News reporter Carol Lee said on MSNBC. "We talked to a dozen people for this story".
