06 December 2019
President Trump was reportedly enraged by the leak of information that suggests he congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his recent election victory despite national security personnel advising him not to.
According to officials who spoke with the Washington Post, a section in Trump’s briefing materials noted, “DO NOT CONGRATULATE.”
Regardless of why the advice was not heeded, the president is said to be furious that the matter was revealed to the press, according to an inside source.
CNN reports that the incident is said to have refueled Trump’s belief that there are people in the U.S. government who are out to get him.
