WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump denied on Thursday that his secretary of state had threatened to resign after a news report that Rex Tillerson had to be repeatedly persuaded not to leave the administration and had called the president a “moron.” “Rex Tillerson never threatened to resign,” Trump said in his most direct refutation of the resignation report. “This is Fake News put out by @NBCNews. Low news and reporting standards. No verification from me.”
