‘Furious’ Trump has unleashed the White House IT department to track down leaker of embarrassing ‘executive time’ daily schedule

Published

on

President Donald Trump is “infuriated” with the constant leaks pouring out of the White House and approved of an IT investigation to find out who the leaker is, reported Politico.

Trump’s personal schedule was leaked and showed that he had an unprecedented amount of “executive time” that included vague details about what he actually does. The president was scrutinized for using the large gaps of the time to do nothing except watch cable news.

“It’s unprofessional to be trusted with information that is not intended to be publicly disclosed and then discloses it, whether it’s related to the president, related to your co-workers or your office, it’s just not professional behavior,” the official told Politico.

The official went on to explain that whoever leaked the personal information should not be trusted with access to more sensitive and private documents.

“We all have much bigger things to worry about and much bigger things that are going on. so it’s not that big of a deal. but it’s more just unnecessary and it was just a petty thing to do,” they explained. “If you’re leaking the schedule, what else could you be leaking or what other information?”

Officials did not reveal who the leaker was although they feel as if they are close.

“Both career and political staff receive the daily public schedule, but I want to be very careful that we don’t try anyone in the press,” said one of the officials.

The White House has sought to seek out the leakers in the past, but have failed to identify a person.

“It’s a familiar position for the Trump White House, which has pledged to root out leakers in the past — most recently after a New York Times op-ed penned last year by a senior administration official identified only as ‘part of the resistance inside the Trump administration.’ In the wake of the op-ed’s publication, the White House embarked on a search for the official that has yet to turn up the culprit,” the report said.

The search was approved by the acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. A White House spokesperson has not responded to a Politico’s request for comment.

Want to meet with the Trump Administration? Donald Trump Jr.’s hunting buddy Tommy Hicks can help

Tommy Hicks Jr. isn’t in government, but he’s a longtime pal of the president’s son. That has put him in the room when the administration talks China and 5G policy, and it lets him help others — including one friend who had $143 million riding on the outcome.

Over the past two years, the Trump administration has been grappling with how to handle the transition to the next generation of mobile broadband technology. With spending expected to run into hundreds of billions of dollars, the administration views it as an ultra-high-stakes competition between U.S. and Chinese companies, with enormous implications both for technology and for national security. Top officials from a raft of departments have been meeting to hash out the best approach.

How Trump could save America

Published

on

Donald Trump keeps claiming that his accomplishments exceed those of all previous American presidents.

Earlier this year, the White House published an amazing piece, titled “The Historic Results of Donald J. Trump’s First Two Years in Office.” Trump´s staff patted itself on the back so hard it must have hurt.

You don’t have to be a psychiatrist to realize the following: First, Trump has an obsessive desire to claim himself a success story. Second, despite his massive narcissism, he is painfully aware that he is an unmitigated failure. That is what explains his irrepressible desire to aggrandize himself.

2020 Election

Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump

Published

on

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.
