Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Denies Reports He's Leaving His Position

UPDATE: Following a brief statement, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reiterated that he is not planning on leaving his position as Secretary of State, he's still committed to President Donald Trump, and that he wanted to speak on Wednesday to dispel any notion that he had ever considered stepping down. Tillerson said that reports alleging that Trump had to beg him to remain in his position were false as he has never wanted to leave. 

He also discussed how he believes that Trump's "America First" policies have helped people around the world, and that he is confident that results will be achieved. He then said that Trump loves the United States and the American people. 

When asked to confirm the reports that Tillerson called Trump a "moron," Tillerson effectively dodged the question and said that he was not from Washington and therefore did not "deal with this petty nonsense."
