Donald Trump’s White House has been plagued by leaks, and Trump believes it is the fault of the former president, Barack Obama.
“I think that President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it,” Trump said during a Fox & Friends interview that is set to air on Tuesday.
“And some of the leaks possibly come from that group, which are really serious because they are very bad in terms of national security. But … in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics. And it will probably continue,” he added.
When asked if he thought that the former president was also stirring up the contentious town halls that have plagued Republicans recently, Trump said that it was entirely likely.
“It turns out his organization seems to do a lot of these organizing to some of the protests that these Republicans are seeing around the country against you. Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents’ code?” the interviewer asked.
“I think he is behind it. I also think it is politics, that’s the way it is,” Trump said.
