    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.

    Guess Tillerson didn't realize he's have to fight the Donald an' the Russkies...

    Rex Tillerson is Thinking about Handing his Resignation
    Tuesday 25th July, 2017 - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is disappointed with the quality of his work as the head of the US foreign policy department and is considering resigning by the end of the year. This was reported by CNN on the basis of reports from Tillerson's relatives.
    According to media sources, the US No. 1 diplomat has serious disagreements with the White House, including the State Department's staff policy and the issue of Iran.


    But politicians and oil tycoons have assured them that, despite their disappointment with the administration, Tillerson will not resign before the end of this year. The reason is that he wants to try to reorganize the institution. Other TV sources have said they will not be surprised if Tillerson still decides to leave his post earlier.

    Trump, Sessions headed for an all out war? President publicly humiliates his Attorney General
    Tuesday 25th July, 2017 | WASHINGTON, U.S. - Attorney General Jeff Sessions is facing one of his roughest weeks on the job as President Trump’s top law enforcement official.
    After thrashing Sessions last week and going as far as declaring that he wouldn’t have appointed Sessions as the Attorney General if he had known that the Attorney General would recuse himself from the Russia probe - now U.S. President Donald Trump has publicly shamed the Attorney General, again. More importantly, all the criticism has led to serious questions within the West Wing about whether the country’s administration was faced with yet another top official’s exit. Sessions, an Eagle Scout, was missing in action on a West Virginia stage as Trump spoke to a Boy Scout Jamboree on Monday evening didn’t go unnoticed and some of the President’s advisers have revealed that he might be considering a change.

    On Monday, Trump attacked his Attorney General publicly days after a controversial shake-up in the communications department. In a morning tweet, Trump labelled Sessions "beleaguered," and aides and advisers said Trump was considering whether to make a change. According to sources quoted in reports, some potential choices like Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie, who were once keen on the job have now grown concerned about working in this administration. But finding another person for the job wouldn’t be the only problem in replacing Sessions. The Senate would have to confirm any replacement pick.


    Get back, get back Grumpy Cat - whew!

    According to one of Trump’s advisers, the President would see firing Sessions as a way to have more control over special counsel Bob Mueller, who he has decided he cannot fire — at least for now. The president, who has, for long been frustrated with Sessions for recusing from the investigation into Russia’s activities during the 2016 election, has now began to publicly express his anger - especially because both his son and his son-in-law have come under the radar of investigators. Rumours of top officials resigning comes at a time when the White House is troubled by a raging controversy related to the investigations into the Russian influence in the election and a possible collusion that has distracted the administration from its legislative agenda.

    The string of leaks has also paved the way towards the failure of the party in presenting a united front amid the crisis. According to a White House spokeswoman, Sessions was in the West Wing on Monday but didn’t meet Trump. Further, a report in Politico quoted the new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci as saying that the president remained upset. Ironically, Sessions was one of Trump’s first Capitol Hill supporters. However, Scaramucci suggested the two men needed to have a serious conversation. He said, “The president remains disappointed in some of the ways the attorney general has handled certain situations.” Scaramucci added Sessions' fate would be up to the president and Sessions. After last week’s criticism, the Attorney General has said he intends to stay in the job. According to a longtime business associate, Trump rarely fires employees but prefers to make their jobs unpleasant, as he’s done with Sessions.

    It's all the talk today especially after Trump's meltdown at the Boy Scout Jamboree.

    Secretary Tillerson has a long history with the Boy Scouts and word is he's done with Trump.
