Secretary of State Tillerson Rebuffs Senator’s Claim Trump “Castrated” Him

HeadlineOct 16, 2017

In Washington, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday he approved of President Trump’s foreign policy moves, shrugging off comments by Republican Senator Bob Corker that Trump had “castrated” his secretary of state. Speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Tillerson said he was “fully intact.” Tillerson also repeatedly refused to confirm an NBC report that he called Trump a “moron” during a meeting with top military officials last July.

Jake Tapper: “Is it true? Did you call him a moron?”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “Jake, as I indicated earlier when I was asked about that, I’m not going to deal with that kind of petty stuff. I mean, this is a town that seems to relish gossip, rumor, innuendo, and they feed on it. They feed on one another in a very destructive way. I don’t work that way. I don’t deal that way.”
