Trump: I 'Didn't Undercut' Tillerson

Tuesday, 10 October 2017 01:36 PM

President Donald Trump says he never undercut his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson.

Trump told reporters during an Oval Office meeting with Henry Kissinger on Tuesday that he "didn't undercut anybody."

Trump also says that he still has confidence in Tillerson.

Earlier this month, Trump tweeted that Tillerson was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea. In an interview with Forbes Magazine published Tuesday, Trump challenged Tillerson to an IQ test.

Kissinger has been a frequent source of advice for the president.

Trump says he and Kissinger have been friends since long before Trump entered politics. He says he has great respect for the former secretary of state, calling him a man of immense talent and knowledge.
