According to a source later dismissed as false by the State Department spokeswoman, Mr Tillerson went as far as referring to the U.S. president as a "moron" during a meeting not attended by Mr Trump on July 20.
To be clear, the bit about doing things in unlawful ways refers not to criminal schemes but to Trump sometimes not understanding what existing law did and didn't allow him to do in setting policy unilaterally as president.
"I think he grew exhausted of me being the guy every day that told him he can't do that and let's talk about what we can do", Tillerson said.
Tillerson said on Thursday in Houston that Trump tried to get him to do illegal things without understanding they were illegal.
But perhaps the biggest challenge for Tillerson, he says, was constantly being the person to tell Trump he couldn't do something.
"Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!" he said.
"We can go back to Congress and get this law changed", he said.
Trump appeared glad to rid himself of Tillerson's incompetence, adding that he was "very proud" of his new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "He acts on his instincts; in some respects, that looks like impulsiveness. I think he really is trying to act on his instincts", Tillerson said.
While in office, Tillerson reportedly called the president a "moron" after a particularly frustrating meeting at the Pentagon - something he repeatedly was asked about and never outright denied, saying instead he was "not going to dignify the question" and dismissing it as "petty nonsense".
Tillerson was sacked in March. Though he had been forewarned that Mr Trump was unhappy with him, he learned of his dismissal through a tweet in which Mr Trump congratulated Mr Pompeo and concluded with a breezy, "Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!"
