Twitter responds after Donald Trump asks if “anyone is dumb enough to think he would say something Inappropriate to a world leader while on a call?” Um, yes…a resounding yes.
In the throes of a meltdown, Trump tweets: “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!”
He continued in a second tweet: “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. I would only do what is right anyway, and only do good for the USA!”
….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. I would only do what is right anyway, and only do good for the USA!

This is the same dude who met with Vladimir Putin without any aides. He also took the interpreter’s notes on one occasion. Plus, he spilled classified information in the Oval Office to Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak. Do I need to go on?
Reaction on Twitter:
What @RealDonaldTrump doesn't want you to know is that the U.S. reportedly had to extract a Kremlin source close to Putin after he (Trump) blabbed classified intelligence to Russia's foreign minister and then ambassador – in the Oval in 2017 https://t.co/LjPYcYLhsh

"I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job. I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” He added: "I'm not under investigation." One of the most memorable stories in the Trump White House: https://t.co/o5srYf0gwL https://t.co/Mfjk25rv1c

Do I believe that a guy who thinks windmills cause cancer and forests can be swept and Puerto Rico is ‘surrounded by water, big water, ocean water’ and you need an ID to buy cereal and the moon is part of Mars is dumb enough to break the law on a monitored call? Yeah, pretty much

Now that we know President Trump made an inappropriate offer to a foreign leader, we need to know what it is, because only thing worse than the secret, is fact that other leader knows the secret and can use his/her silence to blackmail President Trump.
