Trump Defends Claim Bin Laden Is Still Alive: That Was A Retweet, People Can Decide For Themselves [VIDEO]

USA Today reports:

NBC moderator Savannah Guthrie prodded President Donald Trump Thursday during his town hall when talking about him retweeting conspiracy theories, saying he’s not just “someone’s crazy uncle.”

Guthrie pressed Trump on his penchant for tweets that spread disinformation, including one post he retweeted that contained a conspiracy theory that former Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama orchestrated a cover-up that included the Navy SEAL Team Six faking the death of terrorist Osama bin Laden.

“That was a retweet. That was an opinion of somebody and that was a retweet. I’ll put it out there. People can decide for themselves. I don’t take a position,” Trump said in defending his tweet. “You’re the president,” Guthrie responded. “You’re not someone’s crazy uncle who can retweet whatever.”
