Bob Corker Blasts Donald Trump for Castrating Rex Tillerson

Frustrated with Congress Trump attacks the political intelligence of Mitch McConnell the moral intelligence of John

But the reports infuriated Trump, who privately bashed his secretary of state to associates and publicly challenged Tillerson to an IQ test.

Corker sharply criticized Trump earlier this month after Trump tweeted that Tillerson was wasting his time trying to open up diplomatic channels with North Korea, which has grown increasingly provocative in recent months. They feed on one another in a very destructive way.

In an interview Sunday, however, Tillerson refuted Corker's suggestion that the president is undermining him. "I don't work that way and I don't feel that way", he said.

Corker, who has been a vocal critic of Trump since announcing in September that he would retire before the 2018 election, told The Washington Post that although he worries about the possibility that Trump will provoke a nuclear war with North Korea and further stoke the conflict with Iran, his biggest worry centers on Trump's relationship with Tillerson.

Again and again, Tillerson declined in a news show interview to attest to the accuracy of the report about his use of the word "moron" to describe the commander in chief.

"The places I come from, we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense", Tillerson said then.

Heather Nauert, the State Department spokeswoman, has denied Tillerson ever called the President a "moron".

"I checked", Tillerson said. "I'm just not going to be part of this effort to divide this administration".

But Tillerson's own efforts have been repeatedly overshadowed by Trump's un-diplomatic style and streams of bellicose tweets stirring global tensions.

"He continued, ".Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!"

"And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump told Forbes magazine.

It was unclear why Tillerson was unwilling to repeat what his spokeswoman has said on his behalf.

She said she was happy being in NY, where the United Nations is based, and said that from what she has observed Trump and Tillerson have a constructive relationship.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said Trump's comments were the equivalent of castrating the secretary in public.
