UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has suggested President Donald Trump retweeted classified information.
Trump retweeted a Fox News story on Aug. 8 with the headline, “US spy satellites detect North Korea moving anti-ship cruise missiles to patrol boat.”
The story, posted a day earlier on Fox News.com, cites anonymous U.S. officials.
The sources say North Korea loading ships with missiles likely means the communist regime is planning another missile test.
Haley appeared on Fox and Friends just a few hours after Trump retweeted the story, and anchor Steve Doocy asked her for a comment on the report.
Doocy asked, “What can you tell us about that?” Haley answered the question with, “I can’t. “
Doocy then asked, “Why?” and Haley responded with, “I can’t talk about anything that’s classified, and if that’s in the newspaper, that’s a shame.”
Trump’s retweet of potentially classified information, which was leaked from anonymous sources, challenges the White House’s public campaign to end anonymous leaks that threaten national security.
