Incompetent and Ignorant – ‘Buried In The WaPo Report: Advisers Can’t Even Get Trump To Read One-Page Security Briefings’
‘That’s right – Trump demands that briefings be cut down to one page and presented in easy-to-read bullet points, and he still can’t be bothered to read them’.
‘More via The Washington Post’:
“U.S. officials said that the National Security Council continues to prepare multi-page briefings for Trump to guide him through conversations with foreign leaders, but that he has insisted that the guidance be distilled to a single page of bullet points — and often ignores those”.
“He seems to get in the room or on the phone and just goes with it, and that has big downsides,” the second former official said. “Does he understand what’s classified and what’s not? That’s what worries me.”
