Rex Tillerson Asks European Diplomats Why US Taxpayers Should Care About Ukraine?
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters always says Rex Tillerson was hired for one reason: to remove Russian sanctions.
Yesterday Tillerson did another thing to validate her belief:
“Secretary of State Rex Tillerson asked European diplomats during a Tuesday meeting why American taxpayers should care about Ukraine, according to a Bloomberg Politics report.”
“Why should U.S. taxpayers be interested in Ukraine?” Tillerson asked the foreign ministers, known as the “Group of Seven,” during what Bloomberg said was an offhand remark at meetings in Lucca, Italy.”
Despite the attempts by Eric Trump and the Right to immediately say Trump’s Syria strike proves there was no complicity that is far from the case. Indeed, Thieu didn’t think he got his bang for the buck with Nixon after deliberately throttling LBJ’s Vietnam peace talks on Nixon’s behalf during the 1968 election.
Many voters regret Trump already-maybe Putin does too. The difference being he shouldn’t get a vote.
But how do you trust anything Trump says or does? For all we know there is some kind of quid pro quo going on here. Russia agrees to distance itself from Assad in exchange for a free hand in Ukraine and it gets Crimea.
In other news, according to Eric Trump the real mastermind of the Syria strike? Ivanka Trump:
“Donald Trump’s decision to bomb Syria was influenced by his daughter, Ivanka, being “heartbroken and outraged” at the country’s alleged chemical weapons attack, one of the president’s sons told a British newspaper.”
“Trump’s 33-year-old son, Eric, told The Daily Telegraph on Monday that the strike was influenced in part by Ivanka, who he said was “heartbroken and outraged” by the chemical attack.”
“Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence,” Eric Trump said, speaking with the newspaper at Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire, Scotland. “I’m sure she said, ‘Listen, this is horrible stuff.’ My father will act in times like that.”
“Trump himself was “deeply affected” by the pictures of children being “sprayed down by hoses to keep their skin from burning,” according to his son. “It was horrible. These guys are savages and I’m glad he responded the way he responded.”
Donald Trump the man with the biggest, deepest, richest, heart. Ivanka can’t stand to see kids suffer.
Yet Trump cuts foreign aid for these kids and refuses to allow any of them to come here as refugees.
And on this Ivanka is not so moved.
Of course, keeping the Russia interference story off the front page had nothing to do with it. Just a lucky byproduct.
To give Trump the benefit of the doubt you have to believe in a lot of coincidences. A lot of lucky breaks and accidents. You talk about having faith. You have to have a boundless belief in the power of coincidence.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will
