With the latest controversy over whether Donald Trump might have risked our national security by making certain promises to a foreign leader, Trump took to Twitter to defend himself:
Another Fake News story out there – It never ends! Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself. No problem!
…Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially “heavily populated” call.
A more correct tweet would have read:
Is anyone dumb enough to believe I would not say something inappropriate with a foreign leader?
After all, this is the same ”small dude” (thanks, Kamala Harris) who spilled classified information to Russians during a White House meeting shortly after getting into office.
This is the same “small dude” who Jay Inslee, during a Democratic presidential debate, labeled “the biggest threat to the security of the United States.”
This is the same “small dude” who met with Vladimir Putin without any aides … and then took the interpreter’s notes.
This is the same “small dude” who caused the U.S. to extract “one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government” in 2017 in part because of concerns that mishandling of classified intelligence by Trump and his administration could jeopardize the source’s safety.
Yes, Mr. so-called president, there are enough Americans “dumb enough” to believe anything. How else could you have gotten “elected?”
