July 25, 2017 23:53

US President Donald Trump described Hezbollah as a "menace" and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as "horrible" during a press conference with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri in Washington on Tuesday.

Trump was also questioned on his attorney general Jeff Sessions during the press conference.

"I want the attorney general to be much tougher," Trump said. "I want the leaks from intelligence agencies, which are leaking like rarely have they ever leaked before, at a very important level. These are intelligence agencies we cannot have that happen."
