One of the biggest areas of concern for Donald Trump ever since being elected has been leaks that have come from inside the White House. Despite the controversial information that has gone public, the president seems to be more concerned about who is leaking the information rather than its contents.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump was sworn into office just two months after his shocking upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, many wondered what would happen during the early stages of the administration. While it's only been four months, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been faced with non-stop controversy that has surrounded the White House.

Whether it's the growing Russian story, his questionable attempts at executive orders, in-fighting within his own team, or the countless other potential scandals, Trump has had his back against the wall from day one and has done his best to deflect, usually blaming the media in the process. Recently, two stories have controlled the media headlines as it pertains to political news coverage. After abruptly firing James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Trump did his best to defend his decision. The Comey issue only got removed from the headlines after the Washington Post revealed that Trump shared classified information with two Russian officials during a recent meeting at the White House.

The president appeared to tackle both of these issues as part of his early morning tweet-storm on May 16.

In his most recent tweet as of press time, Donald Trump focused on leaks coming from his White House as the aforementioned Washington Post story continues to gain traction.

"I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community....." Trump wrote on Twitter. It appeared as if the president was not finished with his tweet, but has not yet updated his social media accounts to reflect a follow-up a message.

Message trouble

Donald Trump's addition of James Comey's name in his latest Twitter message ties together the two big political issues of the day, which has only put pressure on the commander in chief and his team to come to a consensus. Prior to Trump's tweet about Comey, he defended his decision to share information with the Russians, which contradicted the denial coming from national security adviser H.R. McMaster just hours earlier.

Moving forward

With Donald Trump feeling the heat over a variety of issues, recent reports have indicated that he is looking to make major changes with his staff, which could include the removal of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

Despite Trump's insistence that his presidency is going well, his approval rating has dropped to around 40 percent in the most recent polling.
