Trump has claimed that he and his administration are willing to “go anywhere” to stop the leaks coming from the intelligence community.
Trump made the comments during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who questioned the president’s intelligence.
The president said the media, especially CNN, is “going crazy” with the stories that they are reporting.
“I don’t think they understand that I have a tremendous amount of confidence in our intelligence agencies.
I don’t believe they’re doing anything wrong,” Trump said.
“If we want to stop this leaking, if we want the leaks to stop, if I want the leaking to stop that’s on us.
We’re going to do anything we can, but we’re not going to stop it.”
The president said he’s not a conspiracy theorist, but he does believe in the media’s reporting of intelligence reports.
“We’ve got a lot of great reporters,” Trump told Hannity.
“I don’ want to say I’m not a fan of the media or anything, because we’re all doing our jobs.
But I do believe that they’re all trying to do their job, and I have great confidence in them.”
