Our dis­ad­van­tage with Rus­sia

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

Re­gard­ing the July 20 edi­to­rial “Why a chat with Rus­sia is not just a chat”:

In his deal­ings with Rus­sia, our pres­i­dent puts us at a dis­ad­van­tage. The prob­lem is not just that Pres­i­dent Trump’s de­ci­sion to chat with Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin with­out a U.S. in­ter­preter and note­taker left us to rely on his demon­stra­bly se­lec­tive and fickle mem­ory, but in re­ly­ing solely on the Rus­sian in­ter­preter, Mr. Trump de­cided to rely on Mr. Putin’s word — and forced the rest of us to do so, as well.
