Trump’s foreign policy advisers are making fools of themselves
Jim Mattis and Nikki Haley — the two Trump Cabinet members least blemished by their service — got out just in time. The longer the administration’s foreign policy officials stay in office, the more foolish they look serving a president who undercuts them with willful perversity. Case in point: the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria.

As recently as Jan. 6, national security adviser John Bolton had said that the withdrawal, which President Trump had announced on Dec. 19, would not occur until the Islamic State was defeated and the Kurds protected — conditions that might not be met for years. But when Bolton showed up in Turkey to seek a deal this week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pointedly refused to meet with him and denounced Bolton’s attempt to attach conditions to the U.S. withdrawal as a “serious mistake.” It didn’t matter: On Friday, U.S. forces began pulling out of Syria anyway, suggesting that the era of the Pentagon trying to sidestep Trump’s temper tantrums is finished. Once the troops are gone, America’s Kurdish allies will be left at the Turks’ mercy and the Islamic State will be free to rise again.

In the administration’s internecine battles, you can chalk this up as a victory for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has insisted all along that U.S. troops are coming out just as the president said. But Pompeo looked foolish — and petty, too — with his hyperpartisan foreign policy speech in Cairo on Thursday. It was full of unseemly attacks on the previous administration — whatever happened to politics stops at the water’s edge? — but it actually amounted to a massive self-own.

RE: Trump’s foreign policy advisers are making fools of themselves
Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Putin

There is no record, even in classified files, of his meetings with Putin.

To keep his conversations with Putin a secret, Trump took the notes from his own interpreter and then instructed them not to discuss what transpired with members *of his own administration.* He's hiding his discussions with Putin ... from his own administration.
