Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed the nation Wednesday to reaffirm that his "commitment to the president and this country is as strong as ever" following an NBC report claiming that he called Trump a "moron" and nearly resigned over the summer.

His bottom line: "The vice president has never had to persuade me to remain a Secretary of State because I have never considered leaving this post."
