Trump again reveals his dangerous incompetence

( CNN) The Washington Post publicized yet another bombshell report about our President Monday. The legend, quoting unnamed US officials, alleges that Donald Trump returned inspecting Russian officials details of intellect on ISIS and a area to blow up planes abusing laptops — information that had been given to the United States by an ally.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and its representative to the United States, Sergei Kislyak, were met privy to datum so confidential that the United States had not shared with its own friends, according to the news report — but Trump bragged about it to officials from a hostile authority. CNN has not demonstrated the Washington Post report or a New York Times report that followed it.

But if it is true, it would indicate an frightful misstep in conviction and could have serious forks for US security and diplomacy. Trump, who deplores fiercely about how others give him, has once again with his own behavior — his own seeming inability to control himself — composed yet another mess for himself and for the country.
