Apparently, Donald Trump has been getting way too much sun on his 17-day vacation because he just retweeted a Fox News article claiming that US satellites detected North Korea moving anti-ship cruise missiles to a patrol boat.
The report states:
Fox News reported, “Despite the United States’ insistence that North Korea halt its missile tests, U.S. spy agencies detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country’s east coast just days ago. It’s the first time these missiles have been deployed on this type of platform since 2014, U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region told Fox News on Monday.”

Initially, Trump confirmed intelligence that the U.S. had picked up to North Korea, something that would be considered classified was publicly displayed by a retweet. Trump is essentially jeopardizing our national security. Let that sink in.
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley indicated that the information in the report is classified and was leaked.
“I can’t talk about anything that’s classified and if that’s in the newspaper that’s a shame,” Haley said Tuesday on “Fox and Friends” when asked about the story that cites two anonymous sources.
