Ron Paul has issued a blistering response to President Trump’s about-face in regards to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, labelling the president a “hypocrite” for turning his back on the whistleblowing organization.

Writing in his weekly column at the Ron Paul Institute website, the former Texas Rep. declared that Julian Assange is a hero who deserves our admiration and respect – not a prison cell.

Reminding the president that he publicly announced “I love Wikileaks,” on October 10th on the campaign trail, and that he praised the organization for reporting on the darker side of the Hillary Clinton campaign, Ron Paul urged President Trump to become more like candidate Trump – the man who wanted to drain the swamp.

Ron Paul writes: Back then he praised Wikileaks for promoting transparency, but candidate Trump looks less like President Trump every day. The candidate praised whistleblowers and Wikileaks often on the campaign trail. In fact, candidate Trump loved Wikileaks so much he mentioned the organization more than 140 times in the final month of the campaign alone! Now, as President, it seems Trump wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sent to prison.
