House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said during a press conference Thursday that other countries are right to be nervous about sharing intelligence with the United States. Pelosi’s jab was prompted by a question about President Donald Trump’s disclosure of classified information to Russian officials during a diplomatic visit last week. A reporter asked Pelosi whether America’s allies should be “nervous” about sharing sensitive information with the U.S. — “Wouldn’t you?” Pelosi replied. “Wouldn’t you be nervous?”
“This is a discipline. This is something you have to be with on a regular, daily basis if you’re president of the United States,” Pelosi said. “And you have to understand that words weigh a ton.” — “What the president did not only possibly jeopardizes an individual operation, but undermines trust that foreign countries would have in sharing information with us,” she continued. Pelosi said she would like Trump to be “disciplined” and not “brag” about receiving information, suggesting he did not understand his “responsibility to total confidentiality.” — “What he did was very damaging,” she said.
