Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) sent President Trump a “cheat sheet” for his first overseas visit as president, advising him to remember such obvious points as “DON’T leak classified information” and “DON’T talk about a Muslim ban with the Saudis.”
Here's a cheat sheet for your 1st overseas visit.

The list’s easy-to-read format is likely a mockery of Trump’s insistence that his briefings be no longer than one page and presented in bullet point form.
President Trump’s overseas trip will include visits to Israel, the Vatican, and Saudi Arabia. His aide Stephen Miller, who helped draft Trump’s thus-far-failed travel ban, is writing a speech on Islam that the president is expected to deliver in Saudi Arabia. He will also have a meeting with Pope Francis, despite the Pope’s public stance in support of refugees and clear opposition to Trump’s border wall.
