... "On big, transformative issues where President Obama and President-elect Trump are not in alignment, I dont think its in keeping with the spirit of the transition ... to try to push through agenda items that are contrary to the president-elects positions," a Trump national security adviser told POLITICO on Thursday. "It's not going to be just counterproductive, but it will also send mixed messages." ...

Authorized leak by Trump? Isn't productive. He's won the election. No more campaigning. No need to air dirty laundry.
Or is this disinformation being made up?
More likely, Trump met with GOP leadership after meeting Obama. He probably expressed this privately with GOP leadership -- which is where I suspect the leak came from.
Or is Trump administration going to be a sieve?
Follow RitaOK and my discussion. I think we have a pretty good idea of what is going on.
Doesn’t sound like a leak to me, just a logical simple statement, to which the rest of the article is just wild speculation.
....the liar in chief hasn’t been the standard of honesty for as long as we’ve known him....I wouldn’t trust him to take out the garbage.
After the grand display of corruption we’ve witnessed over the last two months at the very top of government.....to trust is foolish
Thanks for that link, very interesting. Interesting comment from Flynn. I look at Erdogan as a really bad guy, an Islamist wanting to be the next Caliph.
Uhuh. I do too. Did you follow my speculation as to what is happening? Why Trump spent 90 minutes with BamBam? Why One potential Caliph is being dangled as bait for another? About this being on day 2. I honestly think the Saturday night live skit where they inform Trump, sir, the country is tired of winning has a ring of truth.
I expect a major re-alignment with the incoming Trump administration. We are going to see some bold moves from Trump regarding foreign policy. Everything we’ve ever known about U.S foreign policy is going to be turned on it’s head.
I think fairweather allies like Turkey may be given the kiss-off. Edragon is Tyrannical he’s managed to subvert and manipulate his legislature and and Judiciary in his favor and thus favoring an Islamic state.
It’s the Venezuelan model, and no doubt what Obama/Hillary and the elite progressives had in store for us.
I think Trump will be looking to build some firm allies in North Africa. I expect closer ties with Egypt to help anchor it and Great Britain to help protect it.
Trump keeps talking about rebuilding infrastructure. I believe he includes the infrastructure of American foreign policy — which Obama drove into shambles.
I think Trump and Putin want to stem the Islamification of Europe and perhaps something good will come of that.
Turkey doesn’t fit into that picture.
Trump is going to at least spiritually support the nationalist movements in Europe, else relations with Germany and France are going to be difficult, again Turkey doesn’t fit into that picture.
The reality is, the U.S will lose a war with Russia. We may kill a lot, destroy a lot but then we’ll lose the pacific to China. Again, Turkey doesn’t fit into that.
All idle speculation on my part.
I believe the bulk of the 90 minutes may have been more to do with Hillary, the DOJ, the IRS, the Clinton foundation. .
Question though, what does a lame duck President have to offer an incoming administration — assuming that that isn’t being subverted either?
Obama stated that he wanted Trump to preserve O’s EOs in the spirit of continuity.
To me, this is the logical counter punch to say “Don’t screw anything else up before I get there”.
It also shows he knows how to play some of the political games between the parties in the big arena.
There are a lot of responses I could give to you in what I think these guys are thinking but I couldn’t re-iterate nor hash out the whole thing because it’s a complete waste of time here on FR to do such a thing.
BUT I will say if you saw the video message from Mr. Netanyahu congratulating Donald Trump on winning the election ....you surely did miss one of the biggest things on media.
The smile and happiness on Mr. Netanyahu’s face said
everything one needed to know.
It was the highlight of my day.
The present admin is NOT a friend of Israel .
I like war games, I like diplomacy games. It’s just idle speculation on my part — as I clearly stated.
My family originated in Sligo.
First, how sweet it is to read the words, "A Trump National security advisor". Second, I don't want any person in Trump's administration saying anything to Politico. Don't telegraph moves.
I agree with your assessment for the most part. ISIS on the other hand.... Dry up their funding now as POTUS Elect. I don’t think you know how well Trump understands the world. Part of the 90 minutes he was schooling BAMBAM on what he should have done. BAMBAM at the presser looked shaken.
Oh and brevity is the soul of wit. ;-)
Read my sig.
It’s good to have an Alpha male standing in the door of the WH.
Exactly, I noticed that too. He was definitely happy and relieved.
Bravo. Mine doesn’t suck either even tho I am agnostic.
This election certainly made me see there is a higher power. Something looking out for good people.
Yes, we’ll see some bold moves with Trump in the saddle. An amazing equestrian has mounted an especially ugly, difficult camel.
This is looking like a very exciting rodeo.
The reason to make this statement is to head off something they have heard Obama is about to do. They have just been warned it will meet vocal opposition now and later repeal by Trump. It must be something major to do this leak.
