USA: 'I know nothing about WikiLeaks' - Trump on Assange

United States, Washington DC
April 12, 2019 at 00:21 GMT -00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump who back in 2016 told reporters he "loves WikiLeaks," said he knows "nothing about WikiLeaks," at the White House on Thursday.

When asked whether he still loves whistle-blowing website on the day co-founder Julian Arrange was arrested, Trump replied that he knew "nothing about WikiLeaks."

"I've been seeing what's happened with Assange. And that will be a determination, I would imagine, mostly by the Attorney General."

"I know nothing really about [Assange]. It's not my - it's not my deal in life," he added.

Assange was arrested earlier in the day after Ecuador officially revoked his asylum status and allowed UK police to escort him from the Ecuadorian embassy in London and into custody. He was then taken to a British court, where he was found guilty of breaching bail and ordered to remain in custody until an extradition hearing next month.
