White House aides were shocked to discover that President Donald Trump gave his personal cell phone number to foreign leaders without their knowledge, reported the Washington Post.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau officials released documents detailing an April 2017 conversation with President Trump that his aides were unaware of.
“We had no idea what happened,” a senior White House official told The Post.
According to The Post the two world leaders talked about “the dairy trade” and “discussed lumber coming into the United States.”
White House officials also had to rely on President Trump’s “memory” for details surrounding the call.
“It was a very amicable call,” the public statement said.
President Trump’s lack of security efforts has come under scrutiny. Recently, he fell victim to a prank call from comedian John Melendez, and even called him back on his Air Force One line.
Trump flips out over ‘RIGGED’ hearings as Democrats grill Hope Hicks
President Donald Trump ranted on Twitter while his former communications director testified before the House Judiciary Committee.
Hope Hicks complied with a congressional subpoena and testified behind closed doors to the Democrat-led panel, and the president raged online as word leaked out that a White House lawyer was objecting to many of the questions about her government service.
"The Dems are very unhappy with the Mueller Report, so after almost 3 years, they want a Redo, or Do Over. This is extreme Presidential Harassment," Trump tweeted. "They gave Crooked Hillary’s people complete Immunity, yet now they bring back Hope Hicks."
Soledad O’Brien shames the press for calling Trump’s lies about Central Park 5 a ‘controversial stance’
Former CNN host Soledad O'Brien has once again called out media outlets for whitewashing President Donald Trump's blatant lies.
This time, O'Brien took issue with a USA Today headline that mischaracterized Trump's lies about five black men who were falsely accused of raping a woman in New York's Central Park in the 1980s, only to have their convictions vacated in 2002 after DNA evidence exonerated them and another man confessed that he was the man who committed the brutal Central Park rape more than a decade earlier.
Instead of calling out Trump for lying about the case, the paper simply called Trump's continued assertions of their guilt a "controversial stance."
Joe Biden heads straight to Wall Street fundraiser after leaving Poor People’s forum
Just hours after appearing at Monday's Poor People's Campaign event in Washington, D.C. and promising to work for the less fortunate, 2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden went straight to a Wall Street fundraiser in New York City where he solicited donations from, among others, a pro-Trump billionaire.
The fundraiser was held at the Manhattan penthouse apartment of investor Jim Chanos. According to CNBC reporting, Biden told wealthy attendees "you guys are great" and "you guys are incredibly important" before singing the praises of working class Americans.
