“He will do a fantastic job!” he tweeted. “Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service.”

It was reported late last year that Tillerson had referred to Trump as a “moron,” prompting Trump to challenge his State Department head to an IQ test.

The move comes just after Tillerson finished a diplomatic trip to Africa and said that the U.S. is mulling a lifting the travel ban in place on Chad.
