Trump accuses Obama of “possibly” being behind White House leaks

Former US president, Barack Obama, has been blamed by his successor Donald Trump for the leaks emanating from the White House.

Trump made the claim on Monday night during an interview with ‘Fox and Friends’.

The US President also said “Obama’s people” were responsible for the anti-Republican protests during recent town hall meetings.

A Fox interviewer asked Trump if he believed Obama was involved in the protests, and he responded affirmatively.

“You never know what’s exactly happening behind the scenes. You know, you’re probably right or possibly right, but you never know.

“No, I think that President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it,” he said.

“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 I also understand that is politics. In terms of him being behind things, that’s politics. And it will probably continue,” he added.

Some Republicans have also accused Obama of orchestrating the demonstrations through a progressive group called Organizing for Action, OFA, which was born during his presidential campaigns.

The full interview will air Tuesday.
