US President Donald Trump has challenged his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, to an IQ test, in the latest sign of discord between the two.

He made the remark in a magazine interview when asked about reports that Mr Tillerson had called him a moron.

"I think it's fake news," Mr Trump told media, "but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win."

Trump had lunch on Tuesday (10) with Tillerson.

Shortly beforehand, the president maintained he still had confidence in the secretary of state.

"I did not undercut anybody," he also told reporters. "I don't believe in undercutting people."

However, when asked about Trump's IQ test challenge, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the daily news briefing: "It was a joke. You should get a sense of humour."
