Trump: Intelligence Community Giving out Classified Information to Press ‘Like Candy’

US President Donald Trump has criticized the US intelligence community for allegedly leaking classified information to the media, responding to the latest report on alleged communications between his campaign aides and Russian intelligence agents.

Trump tweeted that information is “being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community,” wondering whether the NSA and FBI could be behind the leaks.

In a later post, he said it was “very un-American” that classified information “is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy.”
