Trump defends Spicer for press ‘phone checks,’ but says he would have ‘done it differently’

Though just as determined as Sean Spicer to find the source of White House leaks, President Donald Trump revealed he would have handled things differently than the White House Press Secretary.

“I would have done it differently,” the president said in an exclusive interview Tuesday with Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

Spicer reportedly brought press department staffers together and held a “phone check” by White House lawyers in an attempt to uncover the person or persons responsible for the leaks.

“I would have handled it differently than Sean, but Sean handles it his way, and I’m okay with it,” Trump said calling  Spicer a “fine person” who is doing a “very good job.”

The administration has some “ideas” as to the source of the leaks, Trump said, noting that they are dealing with many people, some from other campaigns and even other governments.

“I would have had one-on-one sessions with different people,” he explained. “I would have done it differently,”

But he defended Spicer and the choice that he made.

“There are things you can do that are a hell of a lot worse,” Trump concluded.
