President Trump retweets Fox report based on anonymous sources

10 August 2017, 01:33 | Rufus Hill

The report was based on anonymous sources discussing leaked classified information - a practice Trump has decried repeatedly when articles are based on leaks that are damaging to his White House.

"Despite the United States' insistence that North Korea halt its missile tests, USA spy agencies detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's east coast just days ago", the Fox News story states. What can you tell us about us about that?

"I can't talk about anything that's classified - and if that's in a newspaper, that's a shame", Ambassador Nikki Haley said when confronted with the report on the morning infotainment program "Fox & Friends".

HALEY: I have no reason to comment.

DOOCY: You have no reason to believe that's not accurate, though.

"It's incredibly risky when things get out into the press like that", she continued. "But I will tell you that it's incredibly unsafe when things get out into the press like that". Tapper asked. "Was it playing with people's lives, as she said?" And this has got to stop.

"Wherever the leaks are coming from", Haley said, "all you're doing is putting Americans in danger". As just noted, North Korea deserves most of the credit for this display of great-power unity, as its various activities and relentlessly bellicose rhetoric have alarmed its neighbors for years.

- Donald Trump has now been President of the United States for 200 days, and he will be spending this significant day tackling opioid addiction - a major health issue plaguing the country.

Tomlinson's story credits the information about North Korean missiles to "U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region". We must be tough & decisive!

Tapper's comments came shortly after CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin tangled with political commentator Andre Bauer over Trump's hypocrisy in tweeting out the report. It is even more disturbing that he is making grand policy pronouncements based on the very "leaks" he and his administration claim are making everyone less safe.

The official said this is the first time these types of canisters have been loaded on to this type of ship since 2014 - a move that the U.S. military thinks may mean that North Korea is prepping for a seaborne anti-ship cruise missile test.
