Trump challenges Tillerson to compare IQ tests

Now, according to a new sports betting liner, the 45th president is yet again the underdog, but this time it's all about his infamous IQ test remark.

Mr. Trump made the comment during an interview with Forbes magazine while responding to unverified claims that the Secretary of State had called the president a "moron".

Tom Friedman appeared on Morning Joe today, and he had some pointed words for Rex Tillerson following the latest news about why the secretary of state reportedly called President Trump a "moron". "I think it's fake news", Mr Trump said. "And I can tell you who is going to win", he said.

The organisation, which "provides a forum for intellectual exchange" among its members, requires an admissions test score which puts the applicant in the "upper two percent of the general population".

Later, the State Department said Tillerson never used "that type of language".

Enter Mensa, which told The Hill it is standing by to put the president's mental mettle to the test.


Trump tells reporters in the Oval Office that he and Tillerson "actually have a very good relationship".

Trump says he listens to everyone "but ultimately my attitude is the one that matters".

The New York Times writer was on to discuss North Korea's impact on worldwide diplomacy, though the conversation eventually moved on to Trump's feud with Bob Corker.

"They're working hand in hand to move the president's agenda forward".

Nevertheless, something about the incident still seems to bother Trump, who was due to have lunch with Tillerson at the White House later on Tuesday.
