Trump Openly Blames Obama For White House Leaks

"No, I think that President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it," Trump said. "And some of the leaks possibly come from that group."

President Donald Trump was recently interviewed on "Fox & Friends," and audiences gleaned two major tidbits: One, he thinks he's doing an incredible job, and two, according to CNN, he thinks former president Barack Obama is responsible for the White House leaks.

"It turns out his organization seems to do a lot of these organizing to some of the protests that these Republicans are seeing around the country against you," a "Fox & Friends" show host said. "Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents' code?"

Trump said,

"No, I think he is behind it. I also think it is politics, that's the way it is. You never know what's exactly happening behind the scenes. You know, you're probably right or possibly right, but you never know. No, I think that President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group, which are really serious because they are very bad in terms of national security. But I also understand that is politics. In terms of him being behind things, that's politics. And it will probably continue."

The leaks in question include down-low contact with Russia, causing former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to resign after misleading Vice President Mike Pence, as well as transcripts of Trump's private phone calls to Mexico and Australia.

Despite the leaks, the cloudy controversy Trump has stirred up with his shady and dishonest administration, and his executive actions that work to reverse human rights, he somehow thinks he deserves an "A" grade as leader of the free world, but "C" for poor communication (well, he got one thing right).

"In terms of messaging, I would give myself a C or a C plus," Trump said, according to CNN. "In terms of achievement I think I'd give myself an A. Because I've done great things, but I don't think we've explained it well enough to the American people."

Hear that, Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer?
