Ignatius: WaPo Report ‘Just One More Example of Trump’s Steep Learning Curve’

‘The intelligence business works on trust and works on the confidence’


IGNATIUS: "An incident like this, even on the H.R. McMaster version that he didn’t disclose sources and methods, but that Trump did share the information is what we infer, has got to be just shattering to the people who provided that information on the understanding it would be held in the strictest confidence. The idea that the President would share it in a kind of boisterous way, almost bragging about how much he knew with the Russian foreign minister and Russian ambassador adds a particular sharp pinch to this because of all that’s happened with Russia and Trump. To me, Willie, this was just one more example of Trump’s steep learning curve in these areas where he is so inexperienced."
