They argue soon-to-be-former President Trump already poses a danger because of the secrets he currently possesses, and they say it would be foolish to trust him with more sensitive information. Goldsmith and other experts noted that Trump has a history of carelessly revealing classified information. said Priess, who wrote "The President's Book of Secrets," about presidents and intelligence. It's unclear whether former President Barack Obama has received intelligence briefings after he left office, but President Trump said in March that he hasn't consulted his predecessors about coronavirus or anything else. Like so much with Trump, his track record of sharing secrets has been unprecedented in American presidential history.

FILE PHOTO: Federal Reserve Board building on Constitution Avenue is pictured in Washington, U.S., March 19, 2019. The changing landscape may prompt Fed policymakers at their Dec. 15-16 meeting to describe in more detail their plans for the coming months. Even on its own, Mnuchin’s decision to let several Fed emergency programs expire next month “will tighten financial conditions ... at the wrong moment,” said Krishna Guha, vice president of Evercore ISI. With the looming end of the crisis programs, purchases of government bonds are now the main lever the Fed can pull to change credit conditions. Firms nursed through the crisis by federal government grants or cheap Fed credit may find their businesses don’t bounce back to normal even as vaccinations make a full reopening of the economy safe.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with a Taliban delegation hours after mortar shells slammed into different parts of Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, on Saturday, killing at least eight people. The mortar barrage came as Pompeo was preparing to meet with representatives of the Afghan government and the Taliban, who are holding talks in the Arabian Gulf nation of Qatar, though progress has been slow. Abdullah Abdullah, the Afghan government's chief negotiator in peace talks, condemned Saturday's attack in a tweet calling it a "cowardly" act. Members of Taliban's peace negotiation team met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Qatari capital Doha, on Saturday. There have been calls for a cease-fire if peace talks in Doha are to continue.

National security adviser Robert O'Brien walks after being interviewed at the White House in Washington, U.S., May 24, 2020. President Donald Trump's National Security Council is preparing for "a very professional transition," because it looks like Joe Biden has won the election, national security adviser Robert O'Brien said in comments that aired Monday. O'Brien also provided what for many will be a surprising assessment of his boss as a student of national security information. O'Brien said his approach as national security adviser was not to steer Trump, but to empower him. "He had been president of the United States for three years when I joined him as national security adviser," he said.

President Donald Trump's plan to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan is meeting resistance from Republican lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell likened an Afghanistan withdrawal to the US's retreat from Vietnam. President Donald Trump's plan to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan is meeting resistance from Republican lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who likened it to the US's retreat from Vietnam in 1975. Trump had campaigned on withdrawing US troops from combat operations overseas, tweeting that US forces in Afghanistan would be "home by Christmas!" But following the ceasefire in February, violence in the country has dramatically spiked, prompting US officials to deliver a stark warning.

REUTERS/Omar SobhaniA senior Afghan government official said he was relieved that under U.S. President-elect Joe Biden, the process would likely be clearer and less chaotic. “A Tweet won’t decide the fate of American troops in Afghanistan,” he said. Afghan officials hope some troops will stay beyond May. NO NEW GUIDANCEAshley Jackson, Co-Director of the Centre for the Study of Armed Groups at the Overseas Development Institute, said the “real issue” was the possibility of delays to the peace process. “While they deal with other urgent priorities, the Afghan peace process hangs in the balance,” she told Reuters.

He’d worked nearly two years developing techniques to try to manage Mr. Trump, from colorful PowerPoint slides to several kinds of flattery. The next day, he suited up, put on his cherished, navy blue NATO tie, with the four-pointed symbol of the alliance from which Mr. Trump had threatened to withdraw, and entered the Oval Office. Down the hall, the very next day, Mr. Kelly was almost done cleaning out his office. He and Mr. Trump had been at each other every day for months. And, if someone wasn’t there to challenge Mr. Trump, might they have risen to action?
