    The Trump Whitehouse was trying to put out that the decision was made last week in which case Tillerson thought he could be free to tell the truth about Russia? However Tillerson's camp are now saying he found out by twitter the same as everyone else.

    The timing is highly suspicious.

    He’s not even trying to hide it any more.

    If this was the story line of some American series then it would be canned as unbelievable.

    The name's Rum, Len Rum.
    EU are supporting us over Russia.
    In view of the 'special relationship' the Don's a bit slow on the uptake though.
    Come on Trumpy.

    EU will support us with words but there is no appetite for extending the scope of sanctions against Russia and Trump’s idea of condemning Russia will be ‘its a really, really bad thing but these guys were traitors to their country so it’s deplorable but you can understand it’.

    May is in a bind here as she has to do something otherwise we look weak but looking to the US or EU for a coordinated response looks doubtful. The EU have always been iffy at the amount of Russian money that is laundered through London so their first response will likely be put your own house in order first and Trump really doesn’t give a shit.

    Best May can do is target the Russian money (less any Tory party donations obviously).

    Think you are misappropriating the word ‘laundered’ there.

    The EU support won't amount to much. Russia have them by the balls with gas supplies.
    No chance of anything substantive from Trump. I expect a load of hot air and a statement that he has done more against Russia than any other president ever. Meanwhile he'll do absolutely nothing except sack anyone that actually looks like they will.

    Every time I see Trump he reminds me of the old films of the Italian dictator Mussolini.

    Did he make an anti-Russian statement?

    Trump's personal aide Johnny McEntee was fired because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes.

    Trump hires the best people.
