Trump wants aides to stop listening in on calls

United States President Donald Trump stated on Thursday that he would like to stop the practice of US government employees and officials listening in on presidential phone calls with foreign leaders.

Speaking in a radio interview, Trump said he could end the practice "entirely."

The president's comments come after staffers listened in on his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky passed on their concerns over Trump's comments on military aid. A whistleblower's complaint that was linked to the call eventually led to impeachment proceedings against Trump. Last week, Trump was exonerated in a Senate trial.
