Trump Tells Murderous Dictator Location of U.S. Nuclear Subs
Weeks before revealing “codename-level” intelligence information to the Russian Foreign Minister, President Trump called Philippine strongman Rodrigo Duterte and told him where U.S. nuclear submarines are located. Subs are stealth assets, and defense officials, who never talk about their deployment, were horrified.

It’s getting harder for Americans to avoid asking if Mr. Trump is too incompetent to be president, or for foreign allies to ask themselves if the U.S. president can be trusted with sensitive information. Of course, we might want to ask why President Trump is praising a brutal dictator like Duterte, whose death squads have executed thousands without trials.
