President Trump on Thursday downplayed his knowledge of WikiLeaks after its founder, Julian Assange, was arrested in London.
“I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office when asked if he still loves the organization.
The president said he had no knowledge of Assange’s arrest or the computer-hacking charge the WikiLeaks founder is facing in the U.S. Trump said what happens next is up to Attorney General William Barr.
Trump repeatedly professed his affinity for WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign, when it published emails that were stolen from Democrats by Russian hackers.
“I love WikiLeaks,” Trump said at an October 2016 rally in Pennsylvania.
