Trump revealed US nuclear submarine secrets to Australia businessman: Media

Former United States President Donald Trump shared classified information about US nuclear submarines with a billionaire Australian businessman shortly after he left office, in a meeting at his Florida private members club, Mar-a-Lago, US media have reported.

The New York Times, citing two unnamed sources familiar with the matter on Thursday, identified the Australian businessman as Anthony Pratt, who heads one of the world’s largest packaging companies.

ABC News, which first revealed the story, said Pratt later shared sensitive details about the US submarines with “scores of others, including more than a dozen foreign officials, several of his own employees, and a handful of journalists”.

Sources told the Times that Trump’s disclosures “potentially endangered the US nuclear fleet”.

Federal prosecutors already investigating Trump for holding classified material at Mar-a-Lago after he left office, have interviewed Pratt twice about the incident, the New York Times reported.

Pratt may now be called by prosecutors to testify against Trump in his classified documents trial, which is due to start next May in Florida.
