President Donald Trump said he doesn't "know much" about WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, dodging a reporter's question on whether the editor should go free. The claim follows reports that the US has secretly charged Assange.

I don't know anything about him. Really, I don't know much about him. I really don't.
