President Donald Trump shrugged off the possibility that his own frequently-used Twitter account could be hacked.
Trump, speaking to reporters Friday afternoon ahead of his departure from the White House, told the Daily Caller’s Amber Athey that “If they hack my account they won’t learn too much more than what I put out.”
I asked POTUS two questions at departure today.
On Jack Twitter hack: “If they hack my account they won’t learn too much more than what I put out.”
On Ilhan Omar alleged affair: “I think it’s terrible. I think those allegations are absolutely terrible”
