WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has been handing out his cellphone number to world leaders and urging them to call him directly, an unusual invitation that breaks diplomatic protocol and is raising concerns about the security and secrecy of the U.S. commander in chief’s communications.

Trump has urged leaders of Canada and Mexico to reach him on his cellphone, according to former and current U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the practice. Of the two, only Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken advantage of the offer so far, the officials said.

I looked for another link to this story and found it.  I wanted to verify that this was true.

This man is an embarrassment to all citizens of the United States and to our allies (if we have any left).

Oh how proud you are going to be with Hillary Rodham Clinton as president in 2020 and Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the house in 2018.

That must make you feel so wonderful to think about it.

Why does the idea of POTUS exchanging cell phone numbers with other heads of state make you call it an embarrassment.

Is it perhaps the fact that he could talk to someone somewhere, without being overheard?

We were told, on day 1.... right after he took the oath of office... that he was given a secure cell and that his personal cell was taken.

The only people who would see this as an embarrassment would be those who
will not be able to "leak" whatever it is that he is talking about.

Now, we know for a fact that Angela Merkle is at odds with him.

She has regarded the US as in lock step with the EU for as long as she has been chancellor and before... AS most EU members felt.

"Speaking at a beer hall rally in Munich on Sunday, Merkel suggested that the era when Europe could rely on the United States may be coming to an end and that the continent “really must take our fate into our own hands.”

The dramatic announcement came after contentious meetings with Trump, who had used his first official trip to Europe to criticize German trade, scold world leaders about their NATO spending and refuse to commit to the Paris agreement on combating climate change."

So, by taking a strong stand in defense of everything American.. she just does not like it.

That does not make for anything embarrassing unless you are an apologist for the USA
as the previous administration was and allowed world dictates to dominate US lives.

How would you like it if I threw horse manure on you?  That's what you did to me.

NO ONE spoke against Hillary Clinton at this forum as much as I did during the election!   You have a short memory.

You have a right to your opinion but it must be truthful when you make comments directed toward me.


Do you know how cellular phones work?   They are much the same as two-way radios but communicate tower to tower on different frequency bands. 

For a President to communicate to other world leaders via standard cell phone is crazy.

Drama queens are so yesterday. She disagrees with you, but as always, instead of addressing the disagreement, you claim to be the victim of a mean woman.  ::frown::

Whew! The amount of exaggeration is breathtaking.  I'm getting ready to prove you wrong, wrong, wrong, on this claim of "NO ONE spoke against Hillary Clinton" as much as you did. Would you like to retract that claim before I get started? Otherwise, I'll go ahead and clean your clock on that claim.  ::smile::

Oh, she's being truthful, but you have a lot of nerve accusing others of being less than honest. *YKWIM    ::nodding::

Evidently, you don't know how they work - especially in government. Trump turned over his android weeks ago and was issued an iPhone. Government issued iPhone's are encrypted and are as just as secure as a landline/desk phone. In our President's situation, it could possibly be more secure than the landline in his office, or haven't you paid attention to the copious amount of leaks? Speaking of leaks - having a hissy fit over his cell phone is pretty futile since it appears everything the man says is immediately leaked to the press.

He has a "standard" cell phone about like he has a standard automobile or a standard plane. We need to worry if he starts keeping his email server in the broom closet at Trump tower, like some other unnamed tower of integrity.

Even frequency hopping on multiple bands is not secure.    There are microwave receivers which can receive multiple bands at the same time.

Mercy. Why aren't you this hysterical about the Deep State and how they are doing everything in their power to undermine the presidency and democracy? The IC and MSM are working together to bring down not only this president, but anything to do with liberty. Looks like you'd get hysterical about that, but since you have blinders on and only pick up news from the obvious, well....

I am confident that the powers to be have this well in hand. A secured hand held device is not new to the presidency. Trump needs to figure out a way to "encrypt" the gaggle of holdover Dems in his administration departments.

You're so right, Jaime. I listened to Rush for a little today. He said if you only get your news and information from MSM, you'd think (like notreligus) that President Trump has lost his base and is going down in flames - when that is not the truth. Rush said he turned off all MSM a couple of weeks ago and loves it!
For people like notreligus, who are overly persuaded and discouraged by Deep State operatives in the media, then maybe do like Rush (and me) and tune out all that crap. Listen to people who don't get so worked up and look at things a little more objectively. Watch a few Scott Adams videos/periscopes. He's objective, mellow, and has a good sense of humor.  ::cool::

I have never seen the base as on fire as it has been the last two days - even during the campaign. It was building during the President's trip abroad, and has come to a fever pitch over the last two days. I'm very hopeful, but if I sat around and filled up on MSM regurgitations and listening to liberal friends, I'd be as hysterical as notreligus! (no offense, notreligus  ::giggle::)

The "assassination" attempt by the media and the Left IS getting old. I used to be amused by the lengths they would go. If I don't turn the morons off, my wife will. We've even just about reached our fill of Fox. To me Trump is being the Establishment/Media's worst nightmare. Exactly why I voted for him. If I wanted Mr. Get Along with DC, I would have pushed for Lindsey Grahamnesty. We need someone to give them unmitigated unlimited hell, while getting the job done for America. We have gone SOOO LONG without a fighter. In the past everytime the Dems or the media said boo, the GOP would pee down its leg. Of course the GOP Establishment is still in that mode. Trump will have to succeed in spite of both parties and the media. I think his unconventional unorthodoxy is just the ticket for those miserable suckers.

Preferably "encrypt" by putting them "in crypts."

Hmmm.

Once again 1/2 of a thread has disappeared.

Probably just as well.

Notreligius, you said

"How would you like it if I threw horse manure on you?  That's what you did to me."

First. That has happened many times to me right here on GC.

But I in no way did that to you. I merely reflected back to you what you are projecting and how other see what you say.

I can assure you... if I ever deag myself down to the level of some on here... you will know it.
