A CHANGE OF HEART: Assange Has This to Say About Trump And It May Surprise You


It’s no secret that Assange isn’t a fan of Hillary but he did say that if he was given info on Trump, he would have released it. He also said that he had very mixed feelings about Trump. After seeing how a Trump victory has affected the world, Assange has found himself praising Trump. We couldn’t agree more.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he had “mixed” feelings about the election’s outcome but offered praise for President-elect Donald Trump.

In an interview with Italian newspaper la Republicca, Assange favorably compared Trump to rival Hillary Clinton, saying at least the president-elect was “not a DC insider.”

“He is part of the wealthy ruling elite of the United States, and he is gathering around him a spectrum of other rich people and several idiosyncratic personalities,” Assange said in the interview, which was first reported by the Guardian.

Assange suggested Trump’s incoming administration was a “weak structure,” but he noted that could create an opportunity for change in Washington.

“They do not by themselves form an existing structure, so it is a weak structure which is displacing and destabilizing the pre-existing central power network within DC,” he said.

“It is a new patronage structure which will evolve rapidly, but at the moment its loosens means there are opportunities for change in the United States.”
