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.

For a guy who supposedly knows the pulse of the people, is he just giving us a middle finger?

Plenty of time to look around.

19. It's not snark. It's alerting you to the simple basics of LBN.

The stop sign is there for a purpose.

If you discover that your post is a duplicate, you can always copy your writing to the clipboard on your phone, self-delete your thread, and then reply to the original with your writing.

22. Trump's Priorities In Full Display

Amazing how Trump's administration is far more comfortable with the Russians than with long time U.S. allies.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/exclusive-tillerson-plans-to-skip-nato-meeting-visit-russia-in-april-sources/ar-BByu55S?li=BBnb7Kz

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.

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.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner had no immediate comment on whether Tillerson would skip the NATO meeting or visit Russia. Two U.S. officials said Tillerson planned to visit Moscow on April 12.
