US President Donald Trump said he could ban White House employees from accessing his telephone conversations with leaders of other countries.
According to Bloomberg, the American president said that about 25 people are listening to his telephone conversations with foreign leaders. Donald Trump was unsatisfied with the quality of monitoring of his conversations, as the details of the conversations repeatedly became known to the media. “For years, when you call a foreign leader, they listen to the conversation. I can stop this practice completely, ”Trump said in an interview with radio host Geraldo Rivera.
According to Bloomberg, U.S. President’s telephone conversations are regularly monitored by his White House national security aides and senior officials from the Department of State and Intelligence. Conversations listen to government officials keep abreast of what the president was discussing. In addition, this practice helps protect the president in the event that foreign partners issue a misleading or misleading press release following a conversation.
Last year’s conversation with President Trump of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky was the reason for the launch of the impeachment of the US President. As part of the impeachment process, Donald Trump was charged with two – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. On February 5, 2020, the US Senate acquitted Trump on both counts.
