While Donald Trump was campaigning and the leaks from the DNC and John Podesta were circulation, he stated how much he loved Wikileaks. In fact, several times he made us believe he was an ally of Julian Assange for sharing these documents. In fact he talked about Wikileaks 164 times in the last month of his campaign. So what happened?
Stop. Back in 2010, Donald Trump wanted the death penalty for Wikileaks founder Assange. So, you can surmise that Trump did a 180 when Wikileaks seemed to support him with the emails. After the election, the President revised the statement, “I love Wikileaks” to “No, I don’t support or unsupport. It was just information.”
How can you go from supporting an organization and then overnight denying that you supported it? This is just my opinion, but from what I am seeing he is very influenced by other’s opinions within his own administration. For instance, Mike Pompeo, his choice for CIA director was quoted as saying:
The group “walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service.”
On Friday, April 21st, 2017, Trump stated that arresting Assange would be okay with him. I support Trump but this 180 makes him look bad. After all Julian did to show how corrupt the opposition was (which she is a criminal regardless), and essentially nailed the election for Donald, he shows no support afterwards. This disgusts me.
I don’t think Wikileaks was supporting Trump however. Assange stated that he investigated both candidates and Hillary was the only one who had lots of dirt that people hadn’t seen before. If there had been dirt given to him on Trump, we would have seen it. However, Trump always speaks of loyalty but in this case, he jumped ship himself.
There is a word that describes this 180 that will make many mad that I use it who are Trump supporters themselves, it’s hypocrisy. This is the only thing I have found I am angry about with the President. Julian truly needs his support to gain freedom and Trump turned on him.
Please write the President and voice your concerns about this.
