United States to continue diplomatic efforts with North Korea

Frustrated with Congress Trump attacks the political intelligence of Mitch McConnell the moral intelligence of John

Tillerson also referred to the suspension of the nuclear pact with Iran, about which Trump said last Friday that he is ready to scrap the deal if its defects are not corrected.

Earlier this month, Trump undercut Tillerson in a Twitter message, saying the secretary of state was wasting his time trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

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

Appearing on CNN, Tillerson said the United States wished to remain within the Iran nuclear deal and denied that China was confused about the administration's North Korea policy.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Sunday denied that Donald Trump's threat to tear up the Iran nuclear deal had weakened America's chance of reining in North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile drive through diplomacy.

In an interview with CNN, Tillerson tried to minimize tweets the president recently sent that appeared to undermine the secretary of state's diplomatic efforts and credibility.

Rex Tillerson made an appearance on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, and anchor Jake Tapper cut right to the chase, asking Tillerson to respond to the "castration claim".

"Well, at the end of the day, I think Secretary Tillerson gave a good overview of the relationship", Graham told CBS. "He used unconventional techniques to motivate change", Tillerson said. "I will work as hard as I can to implement his decisions successfully", he continued.

"The president is simply trying to do that in his very unique style, and he is very unique", Tillerson said, adding he agrees with the president's objectives and was there to help him achieve those.

"I checked", he told Tapper.

It was unclear why Tillerson was unwilling to repeat what his spokeswoman has said on his behalf. Yet when Trump publicly says the man in charge of representing his administration overseas "is wasting his time" on diplomacy everyone starts to doubt him.

They men also disagreed on the nation's Afghanistan strategy, which was discussed in the July Pentagon meeting, though Trump was persuaded by Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis to maintain the United States' presence in the region. Sen.
