Rex Tillerson: Trump told me to break the law

Mr. Trump responded to Tillerson via Twitter on Friday afternoon, calling his former Secretary of State "dumb as a rock" and "lazy as hell".

Rex Tillerson got candid today not just about his time at State, but about the President and how "undisciplined" he is.

"He was dumb as a rock and I couldn't get rid of him fast enough", Trump said on Twitter.

Amid reports the Tillerson would be gone soon, Trump tweeted last December: "The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soon - FAKE NEWS!"

Tillerson said he's proud of his government service and would return if the president asked.

"He acts on his instincts".

"It troubles me that the American people seem to want to know so little about issues, that they are satisfied with 128 characters", Tillerson said, the paper reported.

"I'd have to say to him, "Well, Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way it violates the law, it violates a treaty".

Tillerson, who served as ExxonMobil's CEO before joining the Trump administration, has maintained a relatively low public profile since leaving the State Department in March this year.

"He acts on his instincts, in some respects it looks like impulsiveness..."

Tillerson, 66, was sacked from the White House in March after rumors of a rift between him and Trump had been circulating for some time.

Trump announced Tillerson's firing by tweet and, in a final indignity, the White House made it known that the nation's top diplomat was on the toilet when he learned the news.

He recently delivered a commencement speech in May at the Virginia Military Institute where he appeared to take a veiled shot at Trump, saying that when we "go wobbly on the truth. we go wobbly on America".

While in office, Tillerson reportedly called the president a "moron" after a particularly frustrating meeting at the Pentagon - something he repeatedly was asked about and never outright denied, saying instead he was "not going to dignify the question" and dismissing it as "petty nonsense".
