President Donald Trump blasted former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, calling him “dumb as a rock” and “lazy as hell.”

The president made his comments in a Friday tweet. They came after reports that Tillerson had claimed that during his tenure at the State Department, Trump had wanted him to do things that would have been illegal.

"So often, the president would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President I understand what you want to do but, you can't do it that way,'” Tillerson said at a Houston fundraiser on Thursday. "It violates the law."

Trump wasted no time in firing back at Tillerson.

“Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him,” Trump wrote. “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.”

NBC News once reported that Tillerson had called Trump a “moron.”
