Trump added: “But I also understand that’s politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics. And it will probably continue.”

While Trump casts the leaks in terms of national security, others note they also attack his ego.

From the Washington Post:

“Time and again, the image of Trump pushed by his ‘aides’ is one of a clueless child — someone who acts on impulse, disregarding the better advice of people …read more
