Who is a receptive audience?


Unauthorized disclosures have dogged Mr. Trump, who has regularly and angrily criticized leaks from his government. In his first month in office, he called for a Justice Department investigation into what he said were “criminal leaks.” But two dimensions of the latest controversy are new: The disclosures in this case are about a terrorism investigation led by a foreign ally, and the British government has brought its complaints to a receptive audience.

I found the article and my guess is that Trump has been angry about "leaks" from the US government, so when the British advised the US about the terrorist attack, that information was also leaked. The British government complained to Trump, who was receptive to their complaints because it fit into his concerns. Does that explain it?
