If that happened, then it sounds like a reasonable precaution, considering all the leaks to the media. World leaders always expect that their confidential conversations will remain confidential.

He has dismissed Russia’s election interference as a “hoax,” suggested that Russia was entitled to annex Crimea, repeatedly attacked NATO allies, resisted efforts to impose sanctions on Moscow, and begun to pull U.S. forces out of Syria — a move that critics see as effectively ceding ground to Russia.
This is more bullshit. It is the President's job to determine policy with foreign leaders, friend or foe. As to the NATO allies, it is about time a President had the bravery to criticize those that were not doing what they were supposed to be doing to support the alliance. If Trump is able to make a friend out of a foe, that is good. And if Trump can pull our troops out of Syria and Afghanistan , that is also good for us. He doesn't need to listen to these warmongers all the time that seem to only want continual war.
