Donald Trump Accused Of 'Castrating' Rex Tillerson With Tweets

Posted October 16, 2017

Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and President Donald Trump's heated back and forth, you know that Corker threw Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's name into the discussion. "I agree with his objectives, I agree with what he is trying to do".

Shortly after Tillerson's comments, Trump took to Twitter to say he thought Tillerson was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, a Republican, publicly rebuked the president for "castrating" his the secretary of state and undermining his diplomatic efforts.

Even though many have criticized Tillerson, at the very least Corker says he has been instrumental in opening up diplomatic channels with China. CNN host Jake Tapper repeatedly asked him about the allegation, but Tillerson insisted he would not play "games" by answering.

"You can not publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice", Corker told the Washington Post on Friday.

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

Tension between the two countries has grown exponentially due to the nuclear tests that North Korea has carried out in recent months, and which have been interpreted as a clear threat not only to the U.S. but also to its main allies in the area, South Korea and Japan.

Tapper questioned the logic of dismissing the question, saying that Trump and Tillerson's relationship matters greatly for the world.

Tillerson has batted away rumors that he might resign. He makes a decision, there's a mutual respect, and they go forward. In response, the president has maintained a steady Twitter campaign against Corker, most recently calling him "Liddle" and seeking to play down the interview. "How he wants to use his own skills tactically to push things toward change, I am there to help him achieve those". "I don't work that way and I don't feel that way", he said.
