"I checked. I'm fully intact", said Tillerson on CNN's State of the Union Sunday when asked about the claim by Republican Senator Bob Corker. In response, the president has maintained a steady Twitter campaign against Corker, most recently calling him "Liddle" and seeking to play down the interview.
"You can not publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice", Corker told The Post.
Corker added that Tillerson is "in an incredibly frustrating place" where he "ends up not being supported in the way that I hope a secretary of state would be supported". Tillerson reportedly called Trump a "moron".
Tapper questioned the logic of dismissing the question, saying that Trump and Tillerson's relationship matters greatly for the world.
"The President has also made clear to me that he wants this solved diplomatically", Tillerson said.

"I think this is an unconventional president". "He uses unconventional communication tools, he uses unconventional techniques to motivate change". Several top officials, including Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly are helping "separate our country from chaos", Corker said earlier this month.
"It actually enjoys the status quo, the last thing anybody likes to do in this town is make a decision", he said.
The secretary of State said he's fully committed to Trump's objectives.
"I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man".
"Those diplomatic efforts will continue until the first bomb drops", Tillerson said in an interview this Sunday on the CNN news channel, Efe news reported.
