It was after this meeting broke up, administration officials report, that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the President "a moron."

The request is raising questions. The original project began back when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was the CEO of Exxon Mobil. During his tenure as CEO, Tillerson received the Russian Order of Friendship from Vladimir Putin for his role in forging the agreement.
