Why the Trump Administration Has So Many Leaks

Many of the federal government’s 2 million bureaucrats oppose the current president’s policies.

The United States government is at war with itself. For several months, there has been a stream of leaks about the inner working of the Trump administration to mainstream media sources like the New York Times and the Washington Post. These leaks raise the concerning question: Can the president trust the employees who work for him? At a time when threats to American security around the world are increasing, the U.S. government is descending into a state of paralysis as a civil war breaks out between government bureaucrats and the inner circle of the Trump administration.
