Trump, in tweets, defends his sharing of information with Russians

INTERNET (MAY 16, 2017) (SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday (May 16) defended his decision to share information with Russia, saying he shared facts with Russian officials at an publicly known meeting at the White House last week.

“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism,” Trump said on Twitter.

On Monday, two U.S. officials said Trump disclosed highly classified information to Russia’s foreign minister about a planned Islamic State operation.
