Mensa Offers Tillerson, Trump IQ Showdown

Updating its "Trump Betting Hub", Paddy Power Politics has priced US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson at 4/11 favourite to be the "next member of Donald Trump's cabinet to exit" the administration.

But responding to reporters' questions during an Oval Office meeting with Henry Kissinger on Tuesday, Trump insisted, "No, I didn't undercut anybody".

"I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests", Trump said.

"With Congress the way it is, I chose to take it upon myself, so we'll be announcing that soon as far as the signing's concerned, but it's largely worked out", he said.

Trump is set to meet with Tillerson at the White House on Tuesday.

Tillerson reaffirmed his support for Trump last week in a statement to rebut the report, but would not answer whether he ever used the word "moron" to describe the president.

Trump's tense relationship with Tillerson burst into public view last week.

"No, I didn't undercut anybody". Tillerson famously endorsed the Paris climate accord at a global warming summit in Alaska last May just as Trump was preparing to declare his decision to walk out of the environmental agreement.

Mr Tillerson later denied in a hastily called press conference that he'd considered resigning but did not directly address whether he'd called his president a moron.

"In a few days from now, a week and a half to be exact, you'll see exactly", Trump told Huckabee. "They're a little overheated right now, and I think we need to calm them down first".

The lunch comes a week after NBC, CNN and other news outlets reported that Tillerson had referred to the President as a "moron" at the Pentagon this summer. While Mr Trump is quite comfortable with insult-trading, there's one topic that's clearly off-limits.

Vanity Fair claimed Mr Trump is growing increasingly frustrated with his chief of staff, John Kelly.

If the USA exits the agreement, Iran would still receive sanctions relief from other nations party to the deal, and the move would also make Tehran "look like the victim", Murphy said.
