WASHINGTON: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson denied Wednesday he had considered resigning from Donald Trump’s cabinet and dismissed a report that he had called the president a “moron” as “petty nonsense.”

“The vice president has never had to persuade me to remain as secretary of state because I have never considered leaving this post,” Tillerson said, denying an NBC News report.

“While I’m new to Washington, I have learned there are some who try to sow dissension to advance their own agenda by tearing others apart in an effort to undermine president Trump’s own agenda. I do not and I will not operate that way.”
