President Donald Trump apparently didn’t appreciate comments to lawmakers by his former secretary of state.
In a tweet, Trump lambasted his first pick to head the Department of State, calling Tillerson “dumb as a rock.”
Rex Tillerson, a man who is “dumb as a rock” and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State, made up a story (he got fired) that I was out-prepared by Vladimir Putin at a meeting in Hamburg, Germany. I don’t think Putin would agree. Look how the U.S. is doing!

The president went on to allege that the former Exxon chief executive was “totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State.”
Trump suggested Tillerson “made up a story” about his Hamburg, Germany meeting with the Russian leader.
“I don’t think Putin would agree,” Trump wrote. “Look how the U.S. is doing!”
