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.

Trump has often praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Tillerson worked with Russia's government for years as a top executive at Exxon Mobil Corp, and has questioned the wisdom of sanctions against Russia that he said could harm U.S. businesses.

Trump has already antagonized and worried NATO allies by referring to the Western security alliance as "obsolete" and by pressing other members to meet their commitments to spend at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.

Last week, he dismayed British officials by shrugging off a media report, forcefully denied by Britain, that the administration of former President Barack Obama tapped his phones during the 2016 White House race with the aid of Britain's GCHQ spy agency.

That's a fair argument. Baddies actively go out of their way to make their country stronger. Not weaker.
More like a bunch of rich cronies sold their souls to diminish the U.S. as a global power in exchange for profit.

Besides, America isn't so innocent. President Donny told me so.

I brought up the fact that the guy has a frigging medal of friendship from Russia. "Oh whatever, you're over exaggerating, everyone has one of those!"

A lot of criminals are all that too until the Feds go after them..... never underestimate the Feds ability to put you behind bars.

Also I think their intentions have been simple and plain. Cause xenophobia to become the norm, empower a class of oligarchs, and hide it all behind false patriotism and antagonistic relations with foreign countries and any dissent in the media..... aka pull a Russia.

The issue is America isn't Russia and all the many fail safes in our society to keep us from becoming that are kicking in as they were designed to.

All this denying left and right when this administration clearly loves them some Russia makes it seem like they have something to hide. Just saying.
