On Wednesday, May 10th, President Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov and ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. After that meeting, reports began circulating that Trump shared highly classified information with Russia about an Islamic State (IS) threat.
Prior to that meeting, a Middle Eastern ally informed the U.S. that ISIS is hoping to use laptop computers as bombs on planes. Many people are fearful that divulging this information to Russia has made the U.S. look untrustworthy. But Trump is defending his actions saying he had the absolute right to share that information in an effort to fight terrorism.
The Trump administration has already banned travelers from 10 airports in the Middle East and Africa from carrying electronic devices on flights that are bigger than a cell phone. The Department of Homeland Security is considering expanding the ban to include flights traveling from Europe to the U.S. as well.
