Trump confirmed intelligence that the US had picked up to North Korea by retweeting a Fox News story that contained leaked classified intelligence from an anonymous government official.
Fox News reported, “Despite the United States’ insistence that North Korea halt its missile tests, U.S. spy agencies detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country’s east coast just days ago. It’s the first time these missiles have been deployed on this type of platform since 2014, U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region told Fox News on Monday.”
Instead of keeping the intelligence an unconfirmed report, Trump confirmed the classified intelligence leaked by his administration with a retweet:
Trump and his Twitter account continue to jeopardize national security. Thanks to Trump, the North Korean regime is now aware of what US intelligence agencies have uncovered. Trump is bumbling America into a potential confrontation with North Korea over their nuclear program one bumbling tweet at a time.
The President has declared war on leakers. Unless the leaks are covered by Fox News, and the leaker is one suspects could be the President himself.
Trump has no credibility but somehow continues to find new ways to sink even lower. The President Of The United States could very well start a war because he refuses to stop tweeting and start governing.
