U.S. President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confer during a working lunch with African leaders during the U.N. General Assembly in NY, U.S. on September 20, 2017.

Trump said in an interview published Tuesday that if Tillerson did call him a moron, as reported, the two should "compare IQ tests".

If you didn't get enough of the Trump-Huckabee interview, Colbert started off the show by splicing himself in for Huckabee and asking his own questions.

Tillerson, though, is a "very sophisticated guy" who has a different approach than Trump did, Gingrich said, and that has made the transition a tough one.

Tillerson and Defense Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis are scheduled to have lunch with the president on Tuesday.

Gingrich said he thinks there is most likely "healthy tension" between Trump and Tillerson, "but my sense is that Rex is going to stay". The White House has been finalizing an executive order that would expand health plans offered by associations to allow individuals to pool together and buy insurance outside their states.

Despite numerous other instances of Trump seemingly being miserable, isolated, or worse during his first several months in office, he swore to the Forbes reporters that he is enjoying his time as president.

They included a complete overhaul of the green-card system that would limit family-based green cards to spouses and the minor children of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents as part of an effort to end what is known as "chain migration".

If the gulf between Trump and Tillerson continues to grow and the secretary of state's resignation ensues, the man who would pretty much decide on Trump's choice of successor would be Senator Bob Corker.

Trump also told Lane that he didn't see a need to appoint the hundreds of State Department positions that are now unfilled. "There's not a lot Congress can do in terms of changing the rhetoric of our president", McCaskill said at one point.

"I don't think the 25th Amendment was designed for this situation", she said.

Since taking office, Trump has taken a hardline position against Pyongyang, while North Korea has continued to develop its nuclear weapons and missile programs, firing intercontinental ballistic missiles that can reach USA -held colonies like Guam and Micronesia, and states like Alaska and Hawaii.

"He said he called him an f***ing moron".

"We have a very good relationship", Trump said on Saturday.
