Donald Trump on the phone in the Oval Office - REUTERS
President Donald Trump urged the president of Mexico to stop saying publicly that his country would not pay for a proposed border wall between the two countries.

The revelation came as a transcripts of early phone calls between Mr Trump and Enrique Pena Nieto was leaked to the Washington Post.

Also leaked was an early heated conversation between Mr Trump and Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in which Mr Trump said "I've had it."

It was a cornerstone pledge of Mr Trump's campaign that a border wall would be built between the US and Mexico, and that Mexcio would pay for it.

Addressing Mr Pena Nieto in a phone call on Jan 27 Mr Trump indicated he knew the funding for the wall would have to come from elsewhere.

But he told the Mexican president: “You cannot say that to the press."

He said the funding "will work out in the formula somehow. It will come out in the wash, and that is OK.

"If you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that.”

He said the wall was “the least important thing we are talking about but politically this might be the most important".

The leaks are a big deal. Anyone who leaks anything classified should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Having said that, Trump is a clown show. A three ring circle jerk of dishonesty, incompetence and narcissism. I just hope we make it through 4 years. Then if we reelect him we deserve what we get. I believe there are so many leaks because professionals realize how just messed up this administration is and getting the information out is important enough to be a hill to die on for them, in other words they risk their career and freedom to let the rest of us know about Trump and his three stooges of an Administration. Hopefully this is from the Onion

The leaks are mainly from disgruntled liberal Dems in our Government. The better get "right' and STFU or be fired, and rightfully so.

The RINO's better look out as well, as it is easy to see them with Trump around.

So far Trump is doing just fine. A little slow out of the gate, but he is getting there....

Mexica will pay for the wall indirectly, because in the end we will extract it from them in trade.

Not only does he admit lying he also admits he knows the wall isn't going to happen. What worries him? That people will discover he is lying. Turns out they don't care.

The story is the ongoing felonious leaks of the President's private conversations with other heads of state. The content of the conversations isn't newsworthy to anyone but the rabid Trump haters like the 2 quoted here. Old news Trump was upset with the Obama deal to accept thousands of refugees the Australians didn't want but agrees to honor the deal anyway. Of course our press corps never asks why the Australians are so intent on getting rid of these refugees, just manufacturer another phony scandal. The same fake news phony scandal treatment is applied to the President's conversation with the Mexican President.

Funny how lying to the American public isn't newsworthy when it is Trump that is the liar. But whatever...true faith is either an ugly or beautiful thing.
