Putin out-prepared Trump in key meeting, Rex Tillerson told House panel

Former secretary of state Rex Tillerson told members
of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that Russian President Vladimir
Putin out-prepared President Trump during a key meeting in Germany,
putting the U.S. leader at a disadvantage during their first series of
tête-à-têtes. The U.S. side anticipated a
shorter meeting for exchanging courtesies, but it ballooned into a
globe-spanning two-hour-plus session involving deliberations on a
variety of geopolitical issues, said committee aides, who like others
spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss Tillerson’s seven-hour
closed meeting with the committee.
