Navarro's tweet came shortly after the Washington Post reported Monday evening that Trump shared highly classified information about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) with top Russian diplomats in a meeting last week, a charge multiple White House officials have denied.

A U.S. official with knowledge of the meeting told the Post that the president “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

Since the presidential election, Trump and his associates have come under public scrutiny for their praise and seemingly warm relationship to the Kremlin.

Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at the White House last week.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) says the Trump administration needs to reverse the “downward spiral” it finds itself in, following the Post report.

“The White House has got to do something soon to bring itself under control and in order,” the senator said Monday, according to Bloomberg. “It’s got to happen.”
