CIA Director Pompeo on Trump’s Tweets: ‘I’ve Actually Seen It Help Us’

CIA Director Mike Pompeo defended President Trump‘s tweeting habits yesterday at the Reagan National Defense Forum. Fox News’ Bret Baier brought up the President’s retweets of unverified anti-Muslim videos, which former CIA Director Leon Panetta––also in attendance––was very troubled by. Baier said to Pompeo, “Twitter makes your job harder.” Pompeo avoided the direct issue and Baier clarified, “One account on Twitter makes your job harder.” “I don’t know that that’s the case,” Pompeo responded. “I’ve actually seen it help us. I have seen things the President has put on his Twitter account actually have a real-world impact on our capacity to understand what’s going on in other places in the world.” Watch above, via CNN.
