Trump Threatens to Make Calls with World Leaders Private
February 13, 2020 at 4:24 pm EST By Taegan Goddard


President Trump said he may end the practice of having national security and foreign service staff listen in on his calls with foreign leaders, The Hill reports.

Said Trump: “Well, that’s what they’ve done over the years. When you call a foreign leader, people listen. I may end the practice entirely. I may end it entirely.”

2. Putin will be listening

I'm sure the squatter in the WH thinks that's OK, though.

3. Dear World Leaders:

Would you possibly consider not taking President Trump's calls?

4. Because he has no understanding of what can go wrong.

And, of course, the foreign leaders will have witnesses to all of Trump's asinine promises.

12. "I think we've been the most transparent administration in the history of our country"


"Yeah, I think we’ve been the most transparent administration in the history of our country ... There has never been, ever before, an administration that’s been so open and transparent"
https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-marine-one-departure-43/

"So, we want to be very transparent ... And just so you know, I was the most transparent — and am — transparent President in history ... But I want to be transparent ... We’re being — ultimately, we’re being transparent, and that’s what it’s about"

6. He doesn't like people knowing what he's doing.

He's our employee. He must be fired.

8. I doubt that he'll stop the practice...his ego is way, way too big...he wants people to know what...

he is doing, all of the time! How will he handle not having people know what he is doing or saying all of the time?!

9. This is example number 17,123 of why that man has no business in office for ANYTHING...

He not only should not be POTUS, he should not be freely walking around in society.
He belongs in jail and once there, he should be placed directly in general population and told to fend for himself.

Fuck the entire Trump Crime Syndicate from 2 Scoops to 1/2 wit to Ice Princess to whatever the fuck Jared is...fuck them all!!!

20. It's not like every other country is listening in on his unsecure phone calls

Our allies don't tell him because they don't trust him. Our enemies don't tell him because why would they?
