President Donald Trump apparently didn’t appreciate comments to lawmakers by his former secretary of state.

Rex Tillerson reportedly told elected officials that Trump was less prepared than Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of their 2017 meeting.

In a tweet, Trump lambasted his first pick to head the Department of State, calling Tillerson “dumb as a rock.”

The president went on to allege that the former Exxon chief executive was “totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State.”

Trump suggested Tillerson “made up a story” about his Hamburg, Germany meeting with the Russian leader.

“I don’t think Putin would agree,” Trump wrote. “Look how the U.S. is doing!”
