Fox & Friends’ co-host Brian Kilmeade directly criticized the president Thursday morning for saying he would welcome foreign intel on his political opponents. The rare attack followed Trump’s candid remarks to ABC Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos in which he indicated that he would not immediately alert the FBI to more interference in U.S. politics.
“I think the president has to clarify that,” Kilmeade said. “He opened himself wide up to attacks.”
Trump had told Stephanopoulos that he would likely take information from a foreign entity about a political opponent, adding that he did not think it was wrong to do so. He said he would call the FBI only if he saw something wrong with the information. Agency director Christopher Wray has explicitly explained that any politician should alert the FBI in such cases.
