President Trump leaked highly classified information to Russia in an Oval Office meeting last week, and now the New York Daily News is biting back.
On this Tuesday’s front page, the publication describes the inept and incompetent president as the “leaker of the free world.”

Ironically, the Oval Office meeting between Trump, Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kisylak and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had already come under a less intense level of scrutiny on account of the image included in the New York Daily News‘s cover.
The image comes from Russian media, and the fact that Russian media were allowed into the meeting when American media was by and large not allowed in, sparked a lot of controversy.
Since that initial curious eye was turned onto the meeting, however, a much bigger concern has emerged with the Monday report from The Washington Post that underlines the latest New York Daily News cover. Trump, while bragging about the quality of the intelligence that he received, revealed details of highly classified American intelligence on the Islamic State that could jeopardize the integrity of the intelligence stream responsible for the information and the lives of those involved in it.
