Tillerson on North Korea: Diplomacy will continue 'until the first bomb drops'

Even though the State Department denied the comment, Tillerson refused to answer Tapper and instead talked about the problems with the culture of Washington, D.C.

Corker told The Washington Post in an interview last week that Trump's public statements on foreign policy undercut his secretary of state - creating "binary" scenarios for the United States on the world stage.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday that President Donald Trump wants him to continue his diplomatic efforts to resolve the growing tensions over North Korea's burgeoning nuclear weapons program.

Corker sharply criticized Trump earlier this month after Trump tweeted that Tillerson was wasting his time trying to open up diplomatic channels with North Korea, which has grown increasingly provocative in recent months. It was after that session that Tillerson, in a private conversation with fellow USA officials, exasperatedly called the President a "moron", a comment that sparked new questions about the two men's relationship.

On the day of the report's release, Tillerson held a press conference to reaffirm his loyalty to the president.

I wish there were more Republicans in Congress who would publicly condemn Trump for his despicable behavior and actions.

Tillerson gave a minute-long response explaining that his and President Trump's end goals are in alignment, while also describing Trump's communication methods as "unconventional". "I call the president 'Mr". "This is not a place that likes to change. It actually enjoys the status quo".

I wish that the Trump administration officials, like Tillerson, who privately bash their Dear Leader, would man up and quit, and publicly disavow him.

"I am fully committed to his objectives", Tillerson continued.

"I'm not playing", Tillerson told Tapper, after Tapper asked about the alleged "moron" comment.
