Rex Tillerson Admits He Used Melania To Make Putin Flee Meeting With Trump


Donald Trump is in Hamburg, Germany, today at the G20 summit. While there, he met with the object of his affections: Vladimir Putin. They met Friday, allegedly for the first time. The  pair had a very lengthy discussion and spoke for over two hours. One of the topics discussed during the meeting was the alleged Russian hacking.

The issues with Russia extend beyond the election hacking and go into Russian collusion. Mike Flynn was under investigation by the FBI for having lied about his Russian contacts to Vice President Mike Pence. While the FBI was investigating Flynn, Trump tried to end the investigation by appealing to James Comey. Trump allegedly told Comey that Flynn was good guy and that the FBI should just let it go. As a result Trump is being investigated for obstruction of Justice and there continues to be mounting evidence that there may have been Russian collusion between the members of the Trump administration. During the meeting Trump and Putin discussed this topic at length, yet there was no admission on Russia’s behalf of any hacking or collusion. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said:

‘They had a very robust and lengthy exchange on the subject. The President pressed President Putin on more than one occasion regarding Russian involvement. President Putin denied such involvement, as I think he has in the past.’

Tillerson continued with:

‘It may be simply an intractable disagreement at this point.’

The two leaders also discussed the war in Syria and ways that the U.S. and Russia could work together against violence in the region. Both leaders by the end of the meeting came to an agreement. Trump and Putin agreed to a limited ceasefire in Syria. The meeting, however, took so long that, in an effort to move it along, Melania Trump peeked in on them. According to Rex Tillerson, Melania’s charms failed and the meeting continued for another hour. Tillerson said:

‘They sent in the first lady one time to see if we can get them out of there. We went another hour after she came to get us, so I guess she failed.”

When the meeting finally ended Trump said this about Putin:

‘President Putin and I have been discussing various things, and I think it’s going very well. We look forward to a lot of very positive happenings for Russia and for the United States, and for everyone concerned.’
