'Dumb as a ROCK!' Trump launches BIZARRE Twitter rant against Rex Tillerson

Tillerson In First Public Appearance Says Trump 'Undisciplined,' 'Doesn't Read'

Rex Tillerson, the former U.S. secretary of state, broke his silence Thursday calling his former boss, President Donald Trump, "undisciplined" and saying that he was given to violating the law.

President Donald Trump called former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson "dumb as a rock" and "lazy as hell" in an insult-laden tweet Friday. The former Exxon Mobil Corp. chief described Trump as "pretty undisciplined - doesn't like to read, doesn't read briefing reports, doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things but rather just kinda says, 'Look, this is what I believe"'. "His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn't have the mental capacity needed", Trump wrote.

That led to very public disagreements that undermined Tillerson's ability to speak for the administation overseas and angered the president: "He grew exhausted of me being the guy every day that told him, 'You can't do that, and let's talk about what we can do, '" Tillerson said.

"So we don't know exactly what was said", Roberts said with a chuckle.

Trump's tweet Friday followed a host of others addressing a wide range of topics, from the "fake news media" to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 election. "I think he grew exhausted of me being the guy who told him, 'You can't do that'".

After Mr Tillerson publicly said their encounters grew rocky over Mr Trump's directives to do things that were illegal, Mr Trump hit back in a tweet in which he branded Mr Tillerson "dumb as a rock" and "lazy as hell". "It violates a treaty", Tillerson told the attendees at a fundraiser for the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

In the same evening, Tillerson went on to dispute Trump's allegations against the Russian Federation inquiry. When Trump selected Tillerson to serve as the 69th secretary of state, Trump praised him lavishly.

"Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!" he said.

In March, Trump fired Tillerson and replaced him with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He said he offered to work to change the law, but that apparently did not curb Trump's frustration. While Trump dismissed the story as fake news, Tillerson never denied making those remarks. Just as Tillerson was visiting Asia past year and speaking of lines of communication with North Korea, Trump tweeted that he was "wasting his time".

"He got really frustrated".
