Tillerson denied Trump was undermining him on the worldwide stage, after outspoken Republican senator and Trump critic Bob Corker accused the president of seeking to "castrate" his Secretary of State.

Tension between the two countries has grown exponentially due to the nuclear tests that North Korea has carried out in recent months, and which have been interpreted as a clear threat not only to the United States but also to its main allies in the area, South Korea and Japan.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has insisted President Donald Trump wants to resolve the confrontation with North Korea through diplomacy.

Tillerson repeatedly declined to answer a question about a report by NBC News that said the secretary of state had called Trump a "moron" during a private meeting in July with US officials.

Tillerson pushed back on Corker's comments on Sunday, telling Tapper, "I checked, I'm fully intact".

In an interview Sunday, however, Tillerson refuted Corker's suggestion that the president is undermining him. "At the end of the day, he makes decisions".

"I know the appearance of it certainly looks like there's sometimes disunity", Tillerson said on CBS' "Face the Nation".

"Sometimes he changes his mind", Tillerson said. I go out and do the best I can to execute those decisions successfully.

"I think this is an unconventional president. I don't work that way, I don't feel that way, and I'm just not gonna dignify the question".

Corker has already been a target of Trump's Twitter tirades. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), who said Trump has "castrated" his secretary of state by stepping over Tillerson's diplomatic duties.

"And I can tell you who is going to win", Trump told Forbes magazine. "But it's the first part" - the "castration" of Tillerson - "that I am most exercised about".

The president was also angry with Tillerson's remarks after Trump declared there were "fine people" on both sides of the clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and anti-racist demonstrators that left one person dead, according to two people familiar with the Trump's beliefs but not authorized to discuss private conversations.
