The Trump administration will no longer publish public summaries of President Donald Trump's phone calls with foreign leaders, US media report.

Non-public readouts will still be distributed to agencies but press will reportedly be told only certain details of the calls.

Traditionally, both US and foreign heads of state post brief readouts of their conversations after calls.

Readouts have been a part of both Democratic and Republican administrations, intended to summarise for the public what both leaders discussed.

The Post also published details of the president's calls with Mexico and Australia last August, which reportedly enraged the president.

The White House has said that it will no longer provide information about when the president holds conversations with foreign leaders, as it has always done hitherto. »
