The secretary of state defended the Trump administration's plan to slash US diplomacy by 31% despite North Korean missile test and Afghanistan escalation
Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that the Trump administration's proposal to slash the state department and foreign aid budget is in part based on an expectation it will be able to resolve some of the global conflicts that have been absorbing costly diplomatic and humanitarian support.
The Trump Administration expects to resolve something? Which first? North Korea or the Middle East? They must be neck and neck.
"The secretary of state defended his record after a speech on US-European relations that emphasised Nato solidarity in the face of what he called Russian "aggression", ruling out lifting Ukraine-related sanctions until the country's territorial integrity had been fully restored."
Tillerson lives in a dream world when he says things like that. Putin owns Trump, Ukraine will never recover Crimea and pretending they will is lying. It is as likely as Mexico recovering Texas.
