REPORTER: Any response to Rex Tillerson's comments, allegedly?

DONALD TRUMP: Yeah, I'm very honored by his comments. It was fake news. It was a totally phony story. Thank you very much. It was made up. It was made up by NBC. They just made it up. Thank you all.

REPORTER: Do you have confidence in him?

TRUMP: Total confidence in Rex. I have total confidence. Thank you very much, everybody.

KATY TUR (HOST): Again, NBC News stands by our reporting on Rex Tillerson, but that's not really what this story, at the hospital, is about today.
