WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to “compare IQ tests”, delivering a sharp-edged ribbing that threw a bright spotlight on his seemingly shaky relationship with his top diplomat.
The White House insisted the president was only joking.
Trump issued the challenge in an interview with Forbes magazine, when asked about reports that Tillerson called him a “moron” after a classified briefing this summer.
The president responded that if the claim was true, the two should duke it out in a battle of brainpower. “And I can tell you who is going to win,” Trump said. The White House and the State Department suggested on Tuesday that the president was simply trying to make light of what they describe as inaccurate reports of tension.

Just like any other institution, Cyrene High School also has its challenges which make it difficult for it to be perfect.
“Our vision is to be the leading school offering STEM subjects but we have a challenge of resources,” said the school in a statement.
“We need more laboratories and computers and therefore request parents to assist the school by providing learners with laptops. If the parents cooperate, a great change will be noticed in the performance of pupils. The school experiences non-payment of fees by some parents which makes it difficult for the school to implement the budget as planned.
“When all has been said and done, Cyrene High School still remains the best school to be for foundation building.

Above all, as the school motto says, ‘let your light shine’, we will do our best as a school to let our light shine in all areas with great commitment, tranquility, hardwork and determination.”
