At the White House, President Trump was asked about WikiLeaks on Thursday.

Reporter: “Mr. President, do you still love WikiLeaks?”

President Donald Trump: “I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing.”

While Trump claimed he knew nothing about WikiLeaks, he repeatedly praised the whistleblowing site during the 2016 campaign for publishing internal Democratic Party emails.

Donald Trump: “This just came out. This just came out. WikiLeaks! I love WikiLeaks!”
