Despite having only been elected in the early hours of this morning, the Republican candidate is already facing his first major decision over calls for Mr Assange to be cleared over sex assault allegations. WikiLeaks has long sought to expand privacy rights and has strongly opposed secret wiretaps, drone strikes, and the Guantánamo Bay prison facility. Mr Trump, on the other hand, has suggested “closing up the internet” and had often wondered aloud whether the US should consider using nuclear weapons more often. However despite their differences, the two men have been brought together by the race for the White House. Thousands of private e-mails from Hillary Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta were leaked last month, soon after the leak of a video of Mr Trump making vulgar comments about women in 2005. Mr Assange claims he wanted to “change the conversation”, but as Mr Trump continued to be accused of sexism several extra batches of e-mails were released, with WikiLeaks promising more leaks. Now Trump supporters, who are still celebrating his historic win last night that saw him secure 279 votes in the electoral college, say the WikiLeaks activist should be pardoned for helping to bring home the victory. Personally I would guarantee that a pardon of Assange is on the books of Donald Trumps first few days in the office, because we really have to give a load of credit to Julian Assange for Trumps take down of Hillary Clinton. If Assange didn't do what he did in the month of October exposing Hillary's crimes and disgusting behavior Donald Trump might not be our president at this very moment. Through Wikileaks information the world and America came together pushing for a Trump Presidency, by exposing the crimes and disgusting habits of the political elite. It is due to Wikileaks exposing Hillary Clinton and her campaign team that Trump is the president, well a large part of it anyways. Not only should Julian Assange be pardon he simply deserves to be pardoned an freed.
