President Trump Blames This Person For The Russian Controversy

In a normal day, you don’t have to look too far to find a negative story about President Donald Trump. It’s no secret that the vast majority of the mainstream media is not a big fan of his, and the reporting on Trump and his administration reflects that. The resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has ramped the negativity up several notches, and there are now a plethora of stories making the rounds that there are even more revelations to come about ties between Trump and members of Russian Intelligence.

As the New York Post shares, these stories are not escaping the attention of Trump. In fact, he took to social media to share his theory on why they’re out there in the first place.

“This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign,” he wrote.

If you read between the lines, it seems that Trump is implying that the media is behaving like a bunch of sore losers, and as such, there is a great desire from their ranks to post negative reports about him. He attempted to shift the conversation to where he feels it needs to be in a subsequent post.

“The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by “intelligence” like candy. Very un-American!” Trump posted.

Regardless of where you may stand on how the whole Flynn situation went down, the president makes a valid point. It should be at least somewhat concerning that there seems to be an open line from the White House to the waiting ears of reporters, but those types of relationships have been a part of every administration. Nonetheless, Trump hammered his point home.

“The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?,” he continued.

That’s another valid point that he has a right to be concerned about. The leaker(s) have displayed a pretty cavalier attitude about things, so it’s definitely worth questioning if they will show some discretion when it comes to serious matters of national security - or if they will quickly be phoning a friend to spill the beans.
