Trump Ex State Secretary Tillerson'dumb as a rock

"It violates the law", Tillerson said, adding that he didn't want to criticize Trump. "We did not have a common value system", Tillerson told CBS News political contributor Bob Schieffer on Thursday.

Mr Trump wanted the relocation to take place much faster, and a small mission opened in East Jerusalem in May, about six weeks after Mr Tillerson was canned.

It isn't entirely out of nowhere.

Trump had sacked Tillerson in March after a series of rifts over policy on North Korea, Iran and Russian Federation.

Here's a quick run-down of some of the insults they've traded.

His earlier tweets seeking to undercut Mueller's credibility came ahead of expected court filings from prosecutors that could shed more light on the scope of an investigation that has become increasingly perilous for the president.

He doesn't speak for me.

.

Asked how his relationship with Trump had gone off the rails, Tillerson said it might have been the result of his telling the president that he could not do certain things because they were illegal or would violate US treaties.

In Thursday's blog post , Smith laid out Microsoft's principles for how it would self-govern its facial recognition work. We will prohibit in our terms of service the use of facial recognition technology to engage in unlawful discrimination.

Mr Trump's condemnation was in stark contrast to the praise he expressed when nominating Mr Tillerson for the job; he described Mr Tillerson in December 2016 as a "world-class player" who made "massive deals" while CEO of a mammoth oil company.

Trump response to Tillerson's critique was true to form.

After the "moron" reports, Trump threw a public barb at his secretary of state.

And Thursday night, Tillerson gave the most graphic description to date of why that sort of caution seemed necessary. "I didn't know how to conduct my affairs with him any other way than in a very straightforward fashion, and I think he grew exhausted of me being the guy every day that told him, 'You can't do that, '" he said.

Trump said 87 pages had already been written, adding, "obviously can not complete until we the see the final Witch Hunt report". Trump wrote from Air Force One as he returned from a conference in Kansas City about crime.

The full tweet reads, "Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him".

"Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!" Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the first woman so chosen. A State Department spokesperson referred CNBC to Tillerson for an explanation of his comments.
