President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have clashed in recent weeks, and sources inside the Republican Party predict Tillerson won't last much longer, CNN reports.

"I would say the ice continues to thin," an unnamed source told the network. "The question is when does it actually break."

Trump has repeatedly knocked Tillerson's attempts to reach a diplomatic solution with North Korea.

Tillerson said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that he remains committed to his post, but would neither confirm nor deny reports saying that he called Trump a "moron" during a private conversation with Pentagon officials.

The day the "moron" story broke was just after Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's resignation over his use of private jets funded by taxpayer money. According to "Senior Republican sources," Tillerson wasn't fired that day because White House Chief of Staff John Kelly didn't want the impression of a chaotic administration. Although both Trump and Tillerson claim to get along fine, Republican sources tell CNN that the two strongly dislike one another, especially after the "moron" story.

The same sources speculated that Tillerson will be gone by late January, to be replaced by either U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley or CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
