President Trump on Wednesday morning criticized the intelligence community, saying they are giving out leaked information “like candy.”
“The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American!” Trump tweeted.

Trump sent out several tweets on Wednesday criticizing the intel community for information being leaked, just days after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was asked to resign.
The New York Times on Tuesday also referenced four unnamed U.S. officials in a report that claimed Trump campaign staffers had “repeated contacts” with Russian officials during the election.
