I’ll be speaking with Rex Tillerson in a little while -- he’s calling in. I think he had a very successful meeting in Russia. We’ll see. We’ll see the end result, which will be in a long period of time, perhaps. But the end result is what’s most important -- not just talk. And I think that, based on everything I’m hearing, things went pretty well, maybe better than anticipated.
It would be wonderful, as we were discussing just a little while ago, if NATO and our country could get along with Russia. Right now, we’re not getting along with Russia at all. We may be at an all-time low in terms of a relationship with Russia. This has built for a long period of time. But we’re going to see what happens. Putin is the leader of Russia. Russia is a strong country. We’re a very, very strong country. We’re going to see how that all works out. <...> And I’ll also see about Putin over a period of time. It would be a fantastic thing if we got along with Putin and if we got along with Russia.
