Tiller­son cri­tiques Trump, who re­sponds with tweets

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WASHINGTON -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump re­sponded to crit­i­cism from his for­mer sec­re­tary of state Rex Tiller­son on Fri­day by call­ing Tiller­son “dumb as a rock” and “lazy as hell.”

Dur­ing a rare pub­lic ap­pear­ance in Hous­ton on Thurs­day evening, Tiller­son dis­cussed his ten­ure work­ing for Trump. He called the pres­i­dent “undis­ci­plined” and said the pres­i­dent “doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read brief­ing re­ports, doesn’t like to get into the de­tails of a lot of things.”

The pres­i­dent tweeted Fri­day that Tiller­son “didn’t have the men­tal ca­pac­ity needed for the job” and lav­ished praise on Tiller­son’s re­place­ment, Mike Pom­peo.
