& Donald TrumpSecretary of State Rex Tillerson is skipping a major NATO summit in Brussels and meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Washington, D.C. instead. The move has been described as "unprecedented" by a former US ambassador to NATO and "an unmitigated disaster" by another NATO expert. American allies have expressed concern that America is beginning to show they are not as committed to the NATO alliance and Tillerson's skipping of the conference and meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin later in April before he is set to meet with any of the NATO allies again.
