Donald Trump is aligning himself with GOP Presidential rivals Sen Marco Rubio (R-FL) and former Florida Gov Jeb Bush in the Republican Party’s divide over federal surveillance powers. The billionaire said he would “err on the side of security," a day after new National Security Agency (NSA) reforms went into place. “Every time I pick up a phone, I assume people are listening to my conversations,” added Trump, the GOP front-runner. “I don’t like it, but I have to make that assumption. I would really much err on the side of security. As a lot of people would agree with me on that." “I've been there from the beginning,” Trump insisted. “I’ve been there from before the Paris attack. After every attack, everybody says exactly this, but I err on the side of security."
