US President Donald Trump has accused his predecessor Barack Obama of being responsible for the leaks within the present US administration.

Quoting Trump's interview to Fox News, CNN reported the President fully blaming Obama for the leaks.

"It turns out his organisation seems to do a lot of these organising to some of the protests that these Republicans are seeing around the country against you. Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents' code?" Trump was asked.

"No, I think he is behind it. I also think it is politics, that's the way it is. You never know what's exactly happening behind the scenes. You know, you're probably right or possibly right, but you never know," Trump said in the interview.

Reiterating that Obama's "people" were definitely behind the leak, Trump stated that some of the leaks are really serious as they are related to national security.

However, Trump did not offer any evidence for his claim in the clip released by Fox Monday night.

Earlier this month, Trump told Fox News that reports of his calls with the leaders of Mexico and Australia were caused by leaks from "Obama people".

Trump's administration has claimed to have been plagued by leaks within his administration to the media.
