Trump on Fox News Last Month: ‘I Know Matt Whitaker’

“I don’t know Matt Whitaker,” President Donald Trump insisted to reporters before departing to Paris Friday morning. Yet, last month, during an appearance on Fox & Friends, when host Steve Doocy asked the president specifically about a Washington Post report that suggested he might replace his Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Whitaker, Trump replied, “Well, I never talk about that, but I can tell you Matt Whitaker’s a great guy. I mean, I know Matt Whitaker.” This week, The New York Times reported that Whitaker was a frequent visitor to the Oval Office in recent months and is “said to have an easy chemistry with Mr. Trump.”
