WH: Trump IQ comment a 'joke'

 
“The president certainly never implied that the secretary of State was not intelligent. He made a joke. Nothing more than that,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Tuesday
 
Sanders said the two men “had a great visit at lunch” and reiterated Trump has confidence in his secretary of State.

Sanders's comments came after an interview Trump gave earlier on Tuesday, in which he suggested he could beat Tillerson at an IQ test. 
 
That remark follows a report from NBC News last week that Tillerson, frustrated with the president, called Trump a "moron."
