Think of President Donald Trump as a bull, restless and undisciplined.Then came the stunning reports Tuesday night that in February, Trump had asked FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into the Russia connections of Michael Flynn, whom Trump had just fired as national security adviser for lying about those same contacts.National security adviser H.R. McMaster, whose credibility is precious, struggled Tuesday to defend Trump's actions in disclosing terrorism information as "wholly appropriate". He said the president hadn't even been aware of what country had provided the terrorism information. If there's no problem here, why did Tom Bossert, assistant to the president for homeland security, call the directors of the CIA and NSA to warn them what the president had told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak? The threat to Trump's presidency is deepening.Nations around the world are trying to decide how to deal with Trump – whether to trust him with shared intelligence, military commitments and economic deals.Every president encounters damaging leaks and other intelligence issues. The difference in Trump's case is that he doesn't seem sure whether the intelligence community is his friend or enemy.
