Rex Tillerson: Trump attacks the former minister – "mute and smelly lazy" – THE WORLD


UPresident S-Donald Trump has called his former secretary of state Rex Tillerson "stupid" and "lazy". Tillerson did not have the mental skills necessary for his post, Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday. "It was stupid and I could not get rid of it fast enough.

With Tillerson's successor, Mike Pompeo, things are going better in the State Department, Pompey is doing a great job. Trump fired Tillerson in mid-March after clashing with former Exxon Mobil chief on matters like North Korea, Russia and Iran. The relationship was also burdened by the fact that Tillerson Trump privately called a "git".

Trump's recent attack on Tillerson follows Tillerson's comments in a Thursday's television interview. At CBS, Tillerson described his former boss as "rather unruly". Trump does not like reading files and does not go into details on many subjects.
