Trump wants to put a cork in the 'illegal leaks' coming out of Washington


President Trump wants to put a stop to leaks.

In a Tuesday morning tweet, following the resignation of his National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, the president called out anyone and everyone been behind the leaks surrounding Flynn's contact with Russia.

Though the president (ironically) praised WikiLeaks for their efforts during the campaign, he is now questioning how "so many illegal leaks" can come out of Washington. 

Some argued the leaks (and even mention of North Korea) were a distraction.

The real story, many noted, is Russia.

The tweet follows another security-related embarrassment for the administration.

Over the weekend, the president was photographed with a smartphone apparently looking over documents as he spoke with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about how to deal with North Korea.

The two were dining at the Mar-a-Lago on Saturday night in a room full of other patrons. Moments earlier North Korea had just tested a ballistic missile.
