An analysis by The Washington Post concludes President Donald Trump has forsaken security measures he ripped his opponent Hillary Clinton over during last year's race for the White House.

"The picture that's painted is one that runs contrary to the arguments Trump made on the campaign trail," the Post's Philip Bump writes.

"While running for the presidency, cybersecurity and the risk of compromise were cardinal sins, necessitating that he be given the most powerful position in America. Now that he's attained that position, though, his attitude toward security seems a bit more lax."

Trump slammed Clinton's lax email system that allowed hacking by "foreign intelligence" and said Democratic National Committee was hacked because it didn't have a "very strong defense system."

But on Sunday, Trump reportedly discussed a North Korea missile launch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe — in full view of members of his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

He has also been blasted for "leaving intelligence documents vulnerable to people without security clearance" and using an easily hackable Android phone, Bump writes.
