While meeting with the Iraqi Prime Minister in the Oval Office, President Trump was asked about Steve Bannon and 3 others being arrested and charged with fraud over the “We Build the Wall” fundraising campaign.
“I feel very badly.” Trump said. “I haven’t been dealing with him for a very long period of time, as most of the people in this room know.”
Asked what he thought about the “We Build the Wall” project they were arrested for prior to the charges being announced, Trump responded “I didn’t like it, it was showboating and maybe looking for funds. But you’ll have to see what happens,”
“It was something that I very much felt was inappropriate to be doing,” Trump added.
