En route to Tel Aviv from Riyadh aboard Air Force One, Tillerson balked at the idea of the president saying sorry for sharing that information without first telling Israel.

“I don’t know that there’s anything to apologize for,” he said. “To the extent the Israelis have any questions, or clarification, I’m sure we’re happy to provide that.”

After news of the disclosure leaked, Trump defended himself on Twitter — saying he had an “absolute right” to brief Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the intel.
