Trump Talks White House Leaks, Pins Whole Thing on Obama

President Donald Trump is addressing the issue of White House information being leaked to the press by blaming Barack Obama.

The Commander in Chief spoke about how he would have handled things differently than did Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who increased security and introduced random cell phone checks.

“I would have done it differently,” Trump told Fox & Friends Tuesday, Feb. 28. “I would have gone one-on-one with different people. We don’t have a major leak process [in the White House], we have a major leak process in government.”

Trump then pointed to former President Obama as the mastermind of the leak issue.

“I think that President Obama’s behind it because his people are certainly behind it,” Trump said. “And some of the leaks possibly come from that group. … But I also understand that’s politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics. And it will probably continue.”

After stating Obama deported “a lot of people,” Trump scored himself on how he’s doing in the White House so far. He gave himself an A+ for effort and a “C or C+” for his messaging.
