Rex Tillerson Threatened To Resign From White House, Called Trump A 'Moron'

By Brian Skellenger

In an administration that has seen key members dropping like flies in recent months, there was one close call that could've topped them all.

Several members of Trump's senior administration have confirmed that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was on the verge of resigning over the summer due to policy disputes and clashes with President Trump.

NBC News is reporting that a few days before Trump's speech to the Boy Scouts of America (an organization Tillerson used to run), Tillerson called Trump a "moron" during a July 20 meeting between national security and Cabinet officials held at the Pentagon.
