Remarks With French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian Before Their Meeting

Remarks With French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian Before Their Meeting”

In addition to their public disagreements, the U.S. secretary of state has reportedly called his boss a "moron" in a Pentagon conversation about national security.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Monday swatted back at a reporter's question asking if he'd submitted a letter of resignation, curtly responding: "That's ridiculous".

Now, word persists that Trump will soon dump Tillerson, with more rumors resurfacing last month after the New York Times reported he could be replaced (paywall) by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Tom Cotton to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.

Rex Tillerson is rumored to be on his way out, but the secretary of state has denied those reports and ripped a French reporter's suggestion has has submitted his resignation as "ridiculous".

It's my pleasure to welcome Foreign Minister Le Drian from France to the State Department for a working lunch.

Tillerson said the question was "ridiculous" and ended the briefing. "He's not leaving and while we disagree on certain subjects, (I call the final shots) we work well together and America is highly respected again!"
