According to the former Secretary of state, Rex Tillerson claimed that he had often Trump some of his plans would be “against the law”, according to the President, to social media to blast his former top diplomat.
Tillerson “didn ‘ T have the mental capacity” to the State Department, Trump tweeted, adding: “He was as mute as a stone, and I could not quickly get rid of enough for him. He was lazy as hell.”
The rebuke followed a rare public appearance in December — about eight months after he had been expelled as the Secretary of state — in which the two companies were accused of his tense relationship with trump, on the lack of a “common value system” between the men.
Trump and former Vice-President Joe Biden — as a potential 2020 presidential contenders sparred verbally earlier this year, but took it a step further by trash talking who would win in a fight.
Biden the war of words started when he told a group of college Democrats, he would have been Trump’s “behind the gym and beat[s] the hell out of him,” in high school. Trump, in turn, fired back on social media.
“Crazy Joe Biden trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with a physical attack,” Trump said. “He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, and cried all the way. Not people, Joe threaten!”
‘Da Nang Dick’
Trump blasted sen. Richard Blumenthal, in a couple of tweets in December, the synchronization of the Connecticut-Democrat “Da Nang Dick” – a jab at his exaggerated statements of conscription during the Vietnam war.

Blumenthal was widely criticized when he ran for the Senate in 2010 for the last comments, he says that he “served in Vietnam.” Blumenthal received five draft deferments so he could continue his Harvard education and avoided will be provided to Vietnam, according to The New York Times. He served finally, in the States of the U.S. Marine Corps reserves.
Trump vs. Omarosa
Omarosa Manigault-Newman treachery by the Trump-administration can in the least surprising plot twist in 2018. But after the former White House aide and “Apprentice” star released a tell-all book, revealed she secretly recorded people in the White house, Trump was relentless.
“If you are a crazy, crying lowlife a break and give her a job in the White house, I think it just didn’t work out. Good work by [White house chief of staff John] Kelly’s for fast burning, the dog!” Trump tweeted in August.
He previously referred to them as “Crazy Omarosa”, “never [and] never will.”
“The people in the White house hated you. She was vicious, but not smart,” Trump said.
Trump is language about Manigault-Newman — especially his “dog” comment after widespread condemnation and moved.

He said that he could not hold out the false statements “with the political messaging, and loyalty.” He was recently convicted of fraud three years in prison for a series of other crimes, such as tax-and-campaign-Finance-violations-he is involved trump the latter.
Müller has made it clear that Cohen is not together with the special counsel probe, he says, “useful information”, even though it is not clear what has given Cohen more.
