Trump Retweets Story With Classified NKorea Info

(Fox News)

President Donald Trump retweeted a story from Fox News that contained information that the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations called "classified."

Fox News reported Monday that American spy satellites detected North Korea loading anti-ship cruise missiles onto a patrol boat days ago.

"North Korea is not showing any evidence it plans to halt its missile tests," an unnamed official told the network. "It's a trend that does not bode well for hopes of de-escalating tensions on the [Korean] peninsula."

When asked about the story on "Fox and Friends," Ambassador Nikki Haley said, "I can't talk about anything that's classified and if that's in the newspaper that's a shame."

She added, when asked if the information was leaked, "it's one of those things I don't know what's going on. I will tell you it's incredibly dangerous when things get out into the press like that."

Haley continued, "you are not only just getting a scoop on something, you are playing with people's lives, and this has got to stop. Wherever the leaks are coming from, if somebody thinks they are getting power or fame from it, all you are doing is putting Americans in danger."

Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., told CNN Tuesday that "It is alarming the casualness with which President Trump shares classifieds information," adding, "just because something is in the press doesn't make that information no longer classified, so the president should not be tweeting classified information just because he is the president."
