The white house is investigating the leak of information about telephone negotiations of the President of the United States Donald trump with foreign leaders. As reported by The Hill, said press Secretary of the White house Sean Spicer.
“We are studying the situation, and it worries us. Some of them [leak] apparently violate many of the rules and laws,” he said.
Trump, acknowledged by the press Secretary of the White house, concerned that details of his talks with foreign colleagues became public. “The fact that you can’t negotiate without leaks, raises concerns,” added Spicer.
Earlier media have repeatedly leaked details of telephone calls trump with the leaders of other countries. So, on 9 February, Reuters reported that during the conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the White house criticized the Treaty on the reduction of strategic offensive arms (start-3), calling it a bad deal for the United States.
On 2 February it became known that trump called telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull the worst of all his conversations with foreign leaders. According to the Washington Post, the US President got angry when Turnbull reminded him of the obligation to receive refugees from Australia. The Australian Prime Minister called the conversation “very Frank and honest,” while noting that he was disappointed with some points.
