White House Reportedly No Longer Publishing Public Summaries of Trump’s Calls With World Leaders


The White House is planning to end releasing public summaries of President Donald Trump‘s phone calls with other world leaders.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins has an exclusive report on this big shift tonight:

The White House has suspended the practice of publishing public summaries of President Donald Trump’s phone calls with world leaders, two sources with knowledge of the situation tell CNN, bringing an end to a common exercise from Republican and Democratic administrations.

It’s unclear if the suspension is temporary or permanent. A White House spokesman declined to comment.

CNN’s report notes that the White House has not published any readouts of Trump calls with world leaders since his call with the prime minister of Hungary last month.

Some reporters have already weighed in on this departure from precedent:
