Trump frustrated with Tillerson's work - media
US President Donald Trump has grown increasingly frustrated with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who has clashed with the president on issues including Afghanistan troop levels, the blockade on Qatar and Cuba policy, Washington Post reports with reference to its sources.
Meanwhile, people close to the president said he is simmering with displeasure over what he considers personal disloyalty from National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, who criticized Trump’s responses to a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville on Aug. 12.
"He’s [Trump] having a very hard time," one friend who spoke with Trump this week said of the president. "He doesn’t like the way the media’s handling him. He doesn’t like how Kelly’s [President’s chief of staff, John Kelly] handling him".
