The president is treating spies as just another bauble he can flaunt in front of others to make him look smart – this could cost lives
It looks like President Donald J Trump has finally lived up to everyone’s expectations. Throughout the campaign, Trump hammered home the assertion that only he could safeguard classified information. He repeatedly pointed to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as an example of why she couldn’t be trusted with the nation’s secrets. Critics argued that given the chance, Trump would not be able to resist disclosing highly classified information. Has that moment finally come?
Now Trump has admitted that he did just that during a meeting with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. The Washington Post reported that Trump divulged details of a plot to attack the west by the Islamic State terrorist group.
