Trump bragged about classified Syria skirmish at fundraiser

This was mentioned in the Axios AM Newsletter so I did some digging and look what I found.

The White House has tried to avoid discussing a February skirmish between U.S. troops and Russian mercenaries in Syria, but that didn’t stop President Donald Trump from bragging about the Pentagon’s performance at a recent closed-door fundraiser.

The details of the battle remain classified, but speaking to donors in midtown Manhattan last Wednesday, Trump said he was amazed by the performance of American F-18 pilots. He suggested that the strikes may have been as brief as “10 minutes” and taken out 100 to 300 Russians, according to a person briefed on the president’s remarks, which have not previously been reported.
But ohes, noes, Hillary emails, scandal, the end of the world as we know it.

And secret Israeli intelligence. That's fair game to brag about too if you are a narcissist president, isn't it?

What an ass.

Uh, you do realize that Trump is the President and can declassify anything he wants to.

Of course he can. But that doesn't make it any less stupid and hurtful to the US and helpful to the enemy.

But of course, your president being effectively a traitor just makes you smile, I'm sure.

Let's analyze this TDS article written by someone who is clueless about aerial combat:

Trump said he was amazed by the performance of the F-18 pilots. Wow, the enemy now knows that Trump was impressed. I think the Russians/Syrians knew afterwards exactly what had how many hit them and they were also amazed and impressed. What do people think the common term shock and awe is about?

He suggested that the attack may have been as brief as 10 minutes. Common technique. Fly nap of the earth to avoid radar, pop up at the target, release ordnance, than full afterburners to get the fuck out of there before they can react. Who in world does not know that, besides for the OP?

The attack took out 100-300 Russians. Who in the world thinks that the Russians or Syrians can't count their own dead, besides for the OP?

One more time for the Forum's uninformed Canadian

The President has the power to DECLASSIFY anything he wishes.

OOPS Trump is renting more real estate between the Canadian's ears.

No, Trump isn't Stupid, that would apply to those that have a pathological hate for him

Declassification is a documented procedure and does not include off the top of the head comments. He must obey disclosure laws. But, Hillary’s private server ? Hypocrites.

Did he go through the process of declassifying the information OR did he just shoot off his big mouth?
