Some say this is the worst leak of Trump’s presidency thus far. Dan Merica of CNN tweeted this response:
“A senior White House official says leaking “DO NOT CONGRATULATE” is a fireable offense. “If this story is accurate, that means someone leaked the President’s briefing papers. Leaking such information is a fireable offense and likely illegal,” the official said.”

President Trump has every right to be able to trust his senior advisers. When they give advice, he has the privilege to accept it or not. They can’t run to the media when their advice is dismissed.
Leaking information like the warning: “DO NOT CONGRATULATE,” disrupts an already chaotic West Wing. The only scenario where this kind of disloyalty could be acceptable is if the president was doing something illegal.
No matter what you think of the president congratulating Putin on his election win, this kind of White House behavior is unacceptable.
Sen. Marco Rubio slammed the leaker saying that it was “dangerous” that Trump’s inner circle is leaking information. He flat out said that if you work for the guy and don’t like him, you should quit.

Those who oppose Trump are in an uproar because they believe that Trump is under Putin’s thumb. Trump has stayed pretty consistent in what he believes about strong leaders. He congratulated Erdogan, an Islamist, on winning a dubious election in Turkey.
Do you think Rubio is right? He’s basically saying that if Trump congratulating a political leader on winning an election that by all rights was a sham, then you shouldn’t work for him.
