    Sec. of State Rex Tillerson to skip NATO Meeting will visit Russia

    Just In

    Tillerson plans to skip NATO meeting, visit Russia in April


    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKBN16S04I


    U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip an April 5-6 meeting of NATO foreign ministers for a U.S. visit by the Chinese president and will travel to Russia later in the month, U.S. officials said on Monday, a step allies may see as putting Moscow's concerns ahead of theirs.

    Tillerson intends to miss what would be his first meeting in Brussels with the 28 NATO members to attend President Donald Trump's expected April 6-7 talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, four current and former U.S. officials said.

    The decisions to skip the NATO meeting and to visit Moscow risked feeding a perception that Trump may be putting U.S. dealings with big powers before those of smaller nations that depend on Washington for their security, said two former U.S. officials.

    I would visit Russia every week if it made the Dems heads explode regularly.
    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.

    Sure, say for instance at today's FBI Director Comey hearing ... we watched ... and carefully ... what your Reps said ... and most importantly, what they didn't say ... this is how you *mind-read* constituencies at congressional hearings.
