President Donald Trump this morning retweeted a story from the Fox News network's morning show "Fox and Friends" that alleged U.S. spy satellites had spotted North Korea putting anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat.
It's unclear if the president was confirming the report, which cited anonymous U.S. officials, and he did not have any additional comment except tweeting a bit later, "After many years of failure,countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. We must be tough & decisive!"
Trump's tweet comes days after his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, announced a crackdown on U.S. government leakers, which was meant especially to focus on those leaking sensitive intelligence. Trump tweeted his approval of the crackdown Friday, writing, "After many years of LEAKS going on in Washington, it is great to see the A.G. taking action! For National Security, the tougher the better!"
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this report.
