President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his agreement and support of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
During the interview, Assange and Sean Hannity both railed against the “very dishonest,” liberally biased “mainstream media.”
“Knowing what WikiLeaks revealed about the Podesta emails, on Clinton corruption, on Bernie Sanders being cheated – all of this was revealed and not a lot of it was covered,” Hannity proposed during the interview. “So what does that say to the American people about media coverage in America? Dishonest?”
Assange replied, “It is very dishonest… it is an ethical corruption.”
Trump referenced this section of the interview specifically in his tweet, saying the U.S. media is “very dishonest… More dishonest than anyone knows.”
