President Donald Trump is blaming the FBI for failing to stop leaks to the media.
In a tweet today (Friday), Trump says the information being reported is classified and could have a "devastating effect" on the country.
Trump says “The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security 'leakers' that have permeated our government for a long time. They can't even find the leakers within the FBI itself.”
He adds, “classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW.”
This morning at the Conservative Politcal Action Conference (C-PAC), Trump reminisced about his victory in the Republican primaries. He vowed to “build the wall” along the Mexican border.
And he denounced Hillary Clinton's characterization of some of his supporters as belonging in a “basket of deplorables.”
