Candidate Trump: ‘I Love WikiLeaks.’ President Trump: ‘Arrest Assange!’
by Ron Paul, April 25, 2017
“I love WikiLeaks,” candidate Donald Trump said on October 10th on the campaign trail. He praised the organization for reporting on the darker side of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It was information likely leaked by a whistleblower from within the Clinton campaign to WikiLeaks.
Back then he praised WikiLeaks for promoting transparency, but candidate Trump looks less like President Trump every day. The candidate praised whistleblowers and WikiLeaks often on the campaign trail. In fact, candidate Trump loved WikiLeaks so much he mentioned the organization more than 140 times in the final month of the campaign alone! Now, as President, it seems Trump wants WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sent to prison
