North Korea crisis: Tillerson says diplomacy will continue

"The President has also made clear to me that he wants this solved diplomatically", Tillerson said.

"You can not publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice", Corker told The Post.

"The president speaks for himself", Tillerson said at the time. "I don't work that way and I don't feel that way".

"I checked", he told Tapper.

Tillerson has been painted by some "America First" forces as a publicity-shy, slow-moving "globalist" who did not grasp the nationalist platform of Trump's campaign.

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.

But Tillerson said suggestions that he's been undermined have no basis in fact.
