President Trump may not like it when other people in his White House leak things to the media, but that doesn't mean he won't reportedly do it himself.

In another revelation from A Very Stable Genius, a new book by Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig based on hundreds of source interviews, Trump reportedly admitted to being the source behind reports of a private meeting with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Trump and his wife, Melania, were the only other people in the room when Christie met with the president to discuss becoming his new chief of staff. Christie turned down the offer, but was apparently confused about how the details of their meeting made their way to the press, given the extremely private nature of the event. He reportedly asked Trump directly how that happened.

"Oh," Trump reportedly said. "I did it." Read more at The Washington Post.
