Donald Trump rejected intelligence reports indicating that Russia may have offered a reward to Taliban militants for attacking the American military.
The president published a series of tweets calling media reports of this intelligence data “just another fake” and suggesting that the source of the original New York Times article “may simply not exist.
Trump also referred to the Pentagon’s statement that the military leadership “has no supporting evidence”.
“Do people still not understand that all this is a fake, fake news media that was launched to slander me and the Republican Party,” Trump said on Twitter. – I was never informed about it because any information they might have hasn’t reached that level.
