Someone In The White House Leaked Trump’s Calls Because They Are Trying To Warn America

Beneath all of the astonishing details in the leaked transcripts of Trump’s phone calls, there is a much larger point. Someone inside the White House was so concerned about these phone calls that they leaked them to inform the public.

The transcript of the call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is particularly alarming:

TRUMP
Does anybody know who these people are? Who are they? Where do they come from? Are they going to become the Boston bomber in five years? Or two years? Who are these people?

TURNBULL
Let me explain. We know exactly who they are. They have been on Nauru or Manus for over three years and the only reason we cannot let them into Australia is because of our commitment to not allow people to come by boat. Otherwise we would have let them in. If they had arrived by airplane and with a tourist visa then they would be here.

TRUMP
Malcom [sic], but they are arrived on a boat?

TURNBULL
Correct, we have stopped the boats.

TRUMP
Give them to the United States. We are like a dumping ground for the rest of the world. I have been here for a period of time, I just want this to stop. I look so foolish doing this. It [sic] know it is good for you but it is bad for me. It is horrible for me. This is what I am trying to stop. I do not want to have more San Bernardino’s or World Trade Centers. I could name 30 others, but I do not have enough time.

TURNBULL
These guys are not in that league. They are economic refugees.

TRUMP
Okay, good. Can Australia give me a guarantee that if we have any problems – you know that is what they said about the Boston bombers. They said they were wonderful young men.

TURNBULL
They were Russians. They were not from any of these countries.

TRUMP
They were from wherever they were.

TURNBULL
Please, if we can agree to stick to the deal, you have complete discretion in terms of a security assessment. The numbers are not 2,000 but 1,250 to start. Basically, we are taking people from the previous administration that they were very keen on getting out of the United States. We will take more. We will take anyone that you want us to take. The only people that we do not take are people who come by boat. So we would rather take a not very attractive guy that help you out then to take a Noble [sic] Peace Prize winner that comes by boat. That is the point.

TRUMP
What is the thing with boats? Why do you discriminate against boats? No, I know, they come from certain regions. I get it.

The call demonstrates that Trump really is an uninformed bigot. His statements aren’t political gimmicks. They are the words of a bigot who thinks that refugees are Muslims and all Muslims are terrorists. Donald Trump does know less than nothing. Reading the transcript of the entire call, it is clear that world leaders are having to talk to the President Of The United States like he is a child.

The points that someone inside the White House leaked these calls because they are worried about Trump’s behavior and thought that the American people need to know what is going on inside this White House are vital. No one should feel reassured. The President is an unstable man/baby who only cares about his own image while weakening the United States.

Leakers inside the White House aren’t leaking for fun. They are leaking because they believe that their country is being endangered by Donald Trump.
