If Donald Trump shared information with Russia about Islamic State then it was probably appropriate to do so, despite the mountain of criticism he has received.

That’s according to one of Trump’s supporters in Republicans Overseas, who defended the US President on Julia-Hartley-Brewer’s show after the President came under fire for allegedly sharing highly classified information about Isis with the Russian government.

Alex Sundstrom told Julia Hartley-Brewer that sharing information could help both countries defeat Isis, so could be beneficial. 

In any case, he thinks we have no reason to believe the claim, as anonymous officials are simply trying to undermine Donald Trump.

He also claimed the media has reported many inaccuracies about the Trump administration, so if this report is simply ‘fake news’ – as the Russians have claimed – it wouldn’t be surprising.

But Julia argued journalists don't mislead the public on purpose, as they'd lose their jobs if they got information wrong - so we must take the reports seriously.
