Another Dumb Question: Shouldn't the Feds be worried

that the First Family is a flight risk?
Trump has money and property overseas.
He has Jarad and Ivana to help him oversee his escape.
Would any of the foreign countries he is visiting give him assylum?
It would get the best ratings- HUGE - if he pulled it off. Better than any other reality show ever!

ANALYSIS: DOES INTEL LEAK MEAN TRUMPS TRIP IS OFF?

Source: Jerusalem Post

If US President Donald Trump leaked classified intelligence coming from Israel to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, does that mean his trip to Israel next week could – or should – be canceled? This is the question that some in the Knesset asked after reports on the leaks pointed to Israel as the source of Trump’s information.

While some people interpreted that speculation as an imminent dis-invitation, chances are, if it’s Israel’s choice, Trump will still be visiting next week.

After all, Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer immediately responded that “Israel has full confidence in our intelligence-sharing relationship with the United States and looks forward to deepening that relationship in the years ahead under President Trump.”

That doesn’t sound like a crisis brewing.
Let’s face it, there is a broad consensus in Israeli politics that the US is Israel’s most important strategic ally. And Israel needs America’s help both in funds and diplomatic support. Yes, Israel brings things to the relationship.

It’s not totally one-sided. But that doesn’t mean it would be worth the risk of canceling on any US president, let alone a volatile and unpredictable one like Trump.
