Trump Retweets Fox News Report Citing Anonymous Intel Sources

How do you solve a problem like North Korea? Russia & China believe THEY have the answer


President Donald Trump on Tuesday used Twitter to amplify a Fox News report, based on anonymous sources, that USA spy satellites had detected North Korea loading two cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's coast in recent days.

Hours earlier, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade tweeted a poll asking if members of the media should be prosecuted for publishing classified information.

President Donald Trump retweeted a story from Fox News that contained information that the USA ambassador to the United Nations called "classified".

Trump shared the story just days after DOJ grand wizard Jeff Sessions threatened crackdowns on leakers and jail time for journalists who protect their sources. The story was attributed to anonymous US officials.

On the front page of Fox.com right now, there is a story that apparently the intelligence community has picked up anti-ship cruise missiles were being loaded onto a patrol boat or patrol boats in North Korea. "I can't talk about anything that's classified", Haley told Fox News.

Trump retweeted several posts from the Twitter account for Fox News' morning show "Fox & Friends", which he watches and tweets about regularly. "I have no reason to comment on it".

"It's incredibly risky when things get out into the press like that", she continued. You're not only just getting a scoop on something - you're playing with people's lives.

"Wherever the leaks are coming from, if someone thinks they're getting power and fame from it, all you're doing is putting Americans in danger", Haley said. We must be tough & decisive!

Trump, who receives daily intelligence briefings, would presumably be in a position to know whether US intelligence officials have reason to believe Kim Jong Un's regime in fact did load cruise missiles onto a patrol boat recently.

The White House did not respond to questions about why Trump retweeted the story or whether he was confirming the information.
