WikiLeaks: Trump ‘Should be Celebrated’ For His Honesty in Fox News Interview

According to Wikileaks, President Trump ought to be praised for his statement this weekend about how America’s “got a lot of killers,” and shouldn’t act like its so innocent compared to Russia.

During a conversation with Bill O’Reilly this weekend, Trump shrugged off the Fox host’s remark about how Russian President Vladimir Putin is a “killer.” Trump’s exact response was “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country’s so innocent?”

While Trump’s remarks have drawn bipartisan condemnation, WikiLeaks agrees with Trump and says his remarks “should be celebrated”:

Both before and after the 2016 election, Trump has praised the transparency organization for releasing hacked, problematic messages that were lifted from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta‘s email account. Trump and WikiLeaks seemed in lockstep with each others’ messaging in previous months when it came to subjects like intelligence leaks and Russia’s cyberactivities.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has insisted that Russian state actors did not supply him with the information that his organization published. This assertion conflicts with numerous intelligences agencies who have concluded that Putin ordered an active campaign to influence the election to Trump’s benefit.

WikiLeaks has shown disagreement with the POTUS recently over several issues.
