Trump: We Will Consider Releasing the Details of My Phone Call

‘The problem is when you’re speaking to foreign leaders, you don’t want foreign leaders to feel that they shouldn’t be speaking openly’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

TRUMP: “That shouldn’t have been said, he shouldn’t have said that. Now, as far as my conversation, it was a perfect conversation. It was, couldn’t have been any better. But we’ll make a determination about how to release it, releasing it, saying what we said. It was an absolutely perfect conversation. The problem is when you’re speaking to foreign leaders, you don’t want foreign leaders to feel that they shouldn’t be speaking openly. You have to be talking to people. And the same thing for an American president. You want them to be able to express themselves without knowing that not every single word is going to be going out and going out all over the world. When I make calls though, I know that there are a lot of people on those calls that are listening, intelligence people — with my approval — intelligence people and others. So when you’re making a call, or when you’re talking to a leader of a foreign country, it’s very easy the assume that you have many, many people listening. In addition to people listening.”
