Donald Trump reacted to news that Huma Abedin had split from her husband by accusing her boss of sloppily handling classified information.


Abedin announced Monday that she was separating from Anthony Weiner after he sent a sexually explicit text message, which showed their young son sleeping nearby, to another woman.

Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, issued a statement shortly afterward saying that Abedin, a longtime Hillary Clinton aide and vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign, had made a wise decision, reported the New York Times.

"I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him," Trump said.

He then suggested that Clinton or Abedin had shared classified information with Weiner, who resigned from his seat in the U.S. Congress in 2011 after another sexting scandal.

"I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information," Trump said. "Who knows what he learned and who he told? It's just another example of Hillary Clinton's bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this."
