Schmidt figured that Tillerson will eventually leave the Trump Administration once he's exhausted of the president undercutting his work.
Trump shot back the following day in a tweet that Tillerson "is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man", a nickname the president gave to the North Korean dictator.
Since becoming president, Trump has hung various cabinet officials out to dry.
In February, a few weeks after Tillerson was confirmed by the Senate, he visited the Oval Office to introduce the president to a potential deputy, but Trump had something else on his mind.
Last week, Trump lashed out at NBC, calling them a "disgrace to good reporting".
Based on previous instances of Trump denigrating the IQ of adversaries, it seems as though he believes he would win.
First reported by NBC, several other major news organizations confirmed the insult, some saying that Tillerson actually called Trumpa "f-king moron" and almost resigned over clashes with the Trump Administration. "He said he called him an f***ing moron".
Corker told the newspaper, "I don't think he appreciates that when the president of the United States speaks and says the things that he does, the impact that it has around the world, especially in the region that he's addressing". This is Fake News put out by @NBCNews.
"He's gonna have to just make a decision that comes down to simple human dignity", said Schmidt.
"These priorities are essential to mitigate the legal and economic consequences of any grants or status to DACA recipients", White House legislative affairs director Marc Short told reporters in a Sunday evening conference call.
Trump over the weekend responded positively when asked about his relationship with the Secretary of State. "His spokesperson, however, did come out and clarify that the secretary of state never used those words", she added.
