So from this we know know that Israel is wire tapping or bugging the president of the USA.

If our countries leader wants to tell Russia where our spies are so Russia or Syria does not bomb that area, I think that is good. Russia and the USA are allies in the fight against ISIS. This has been going on long before Trump was in the picture.
I think that's an extremely naive outlook, but, it wasn't OUR spies whose location was revealed, it was Israel's spies, and Israel didn't give Trump permission to give that info to the Russian, or any other ally, as I understand the reports.

That spy was in danger the second the meeting was over, long before the Washington Post broke the story.
"It's a big deal, and we want to make sure sensitive information is handled properly," a European diplomat told CNN, adding that the country represented by the diplomat would not cut communications with the US entirely but could potentially reassess what information is transmitted at the political level.
The diplomat -- who spoke to CNN on the condition that neither their name nor country were identified -- said allied agencies could explore ways to share specific information through channels used only by military and intelligence officials.
Revelations that Trump revealed highly classified information to senior Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting last week prompted one European official to tell The Associated Press that his country might stop sharing intelligence with the U.S. as a result.
A second official, senior German lawmaker Burkhard Lischka, called Trump's disclosures "highly worrying."
As a result, U.S. officials and analysts fear other countries will hesitate to share information with a Kremlin-friendly Trump administration.
“If there’s a sense that we’re cozying up to regimes like Vladimir Putin’s Russia, that could have something of a chilling effect," said a senior official from former President Barack Obama’s administration.
a senior European security official said. “There is huge implicit trust between U.S. and British agencies, for example, that will not be easily undermined even by the arrival of a new president with unknown qualities.”
I'm still intrigued by what the US allies have to say about this situation.
So, Trump staffers called the CIA, NSA, and all the other alphabet agencies to...tell them what he did? Fire them.
