A majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump's decision to share sensitive Israeli intelligence with top Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting last week, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll released Friday.

Why it matters: Trump's decision to divulge that information to Russia has influenced public opinion on how Trump handles classified information. While 41 percent of those surveyed said the incident has left them "not confident at all" in Trump's ability to keep the nation's secrets, 16 percent said they were "not too confident."
