The White House has suggested the president former employers should apologize for reporting that Rex Tillerson referred to him over the summer as a “moron”. 

NBC, the network that carries The Apprentice said an apology will not happen.  The network cited a half dozen witnesses who are said to have heard the Secretary of State’s comments.  The report also said Tillerson considered leaving his post –an assertion that he denies. 

Hallie Jackson, the White House Chief correspondent said, “It’s safe to say NBC News will not be issuing an apology to America.”

The petulant president said via social media, “NBC news is #FakeNews and more dishonest than even CNN. They are a disgrace to good reporting. No wonder their news ratings are way down!”

Carol Lee, NBC, news reporter said, “We stand by it. We’ve extensively reported on this. We talked to a dozen people for this story.”

Trump worked for the network as a host for “The Apprentice” television show. The two have since stood on rocky ground.  Saturday Night Live, an NBC mainstay featured a skit that called the president a “cheap cracker.”   He then responded as you would expect.
