President Donald Trump jokingly challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test during an interview with Forbes magazine, but he has a tester willing to provide an exam if he wants to proceed, The Hill reported.

"American Mensa would be happy to hold a testing session for President Trump and Secretary Tillerson," said Charles Brown, communications director for the organization.

Mensa is an international society whose only qualification for membership is an IQ score within the top 2 percent of the general population.

Trump told Forbes he would "compare IQ tests" with Tillerson when asked about an NBC report that said Tillerson called his boss a moron.

"I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win," the president said.

Trump met with Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Tuesday for lunch, and told reporters before the sit-down that he didn't undercut Tillerson with his comments to Forbes.

"No, I didn't undercut anybody. I don't believe in undercutting people," the president said when asked whether he did so. Asked whether he still had confidence in Tillerson, he responded, "Yes."
