President Trump: Sometimes I Wish Rex Tillerson ‘Would be a Little Tougher’ [VIDEO]

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Donald Trump

President Trump on Sunday said that while he and chief of staff John Kelly have a good relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the president would like to see Tillerson — a former CEO of Exxon-Mobil — “be a little tougher.”

“We have a very good relationship,” President Trump said Saturday. “We disagree on a couple of things, sometimes I’d like him to be a little bit tougher. But other than that we have a very good relationship,” the president said.

President Trump also said that he predicted John Kelly, a former military general, would be with the administration for the “remaining seven-plus years,” assuming that he is re-elected in 2020 for a second term.

Rex Tillerson has recently come under fire for reportedly referring to President Trump as a “moron,” a charge he initially refused to deny. Tillerson later reportedly met with Vice President Mike Pence who urged him to show more respect towards the president.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that he and President Trump are “one team with one with mission.”

The “couple of things” Trump and Tillerson disagree on, reportedly are some pretty big issues, like the Obama-Iran nuclear deal, America’s approach to communist North Korea, the Paris climate accord, and several others.
