Trump’s national security advisor Michael Flynn resigned Monday amid revelations he misled top White House officials about the nature of his conversations with a Russian ambassador during the transition. 

The president has reportedly been turned down by more than one candidate to replace Flynn. 

Trump has attacked the intelligence leaks that led to Flynn’s ouster and other damaging stories about the administration, asserting during the press conference: “The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake.”

He also called questions about his team’s links to Russia during the presidential campaign “a ruse” and “you know, a fake news, fabricated deal.”
