Trump called Tillerson «dumb as a rock» and «lazy as hell»

«Rex Tillerson didn’t need mental powers. He was dumb as a rock, but I couldn’t get rid of it fast enough. He was lazy as hell» were the words of former U.S. Secretary of state President Donald trump in response to his interview, which was published by CBS News.

Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!

He doesn’t read briefings … doesn’t like to go into details of many things.» Tillerson said that he had to leave the state Department after he told the President that he can’t do certain things because they are illegal or would violate the international agreements of the United States: «I told him, well, Mr. President, I understand that you want to do, but you can’t do it this way. It violates the law, it violates the contract. I was upset about that.»

The tramp was not long in coming, and said, «courtesy» on Twitter. After retiring from the state Department Tillerson, many paid tribute to him for what he was able to withstand there is at least some time — filling key vacancies and complex attitude of foreign diplomats, who knew that the White house does not listen to his opinion. However, earlier aloud they haven’t talked about each other so openly.
