Fox News’ Shep Smith noted Wednesday that during a “little get-together” at Mar-a-Lago, President Donald Trump appeared to confirm reports that CIA Director and nominated secretary of state Mike Pompeo secretly traveled to North Korea to meet with the country’s leader Kim Jong-un.
Though the president said during the press conference with Japanese President Shinzo Abe that Pompeo “just got back” from North Korea, the host pointed out that The Washington Post‘s report about the clandestine meeting said it took place weeks ago.
“Fox News confirmed the sit-down happened over Easter weekend to talk about a possible summit between President Trump and the North Korean leader,” Smith noted. “Now, President Trump just said [Pompeo] just got back.”
“Easter was awhile ago,” the host mused. “I’m guessing something’s lost in the translation there.”
