BRIAN KILMEADE (HOST): Can we talk about President Obama? You said you personally get along with him, you guys were going at each other for three or four, maybe eight years. It turns out his organization seems to be doing a lot of the organizing to some of the protests that a lot of these Republicans are seeing around the country and against you. Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid President's code?
DONALD TRUMP: No I think he is behind it, I also think it's politics. That's the way it is.
KILMEADE: But Bush wasn't going after Clinton and Clinton wasn't going after Bush.
TRUMP: Well you never know what's exactly happening behind the scenes. You know You're probably right or possibly right but you never know. No, I think that president Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks, possibly come from that group, you know, some of the leaks, which are really very serious leaks because they are very bad in terms of national security. But I also understand that's politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that's politics. And it will probably continue.
