ALEX JONES (HOST): Coming back, I’m going to play a clip from Monday, where I told you -- I also said it on Sunday -- but they found the clip from Monday that I had talked to folks very close to the president. Very close to the president, closer than his wife. [laughs] OK, I’m going to stop. The media just can’t stand the fact that we’ve got these connections. “White House Source: Trump Pushes Back Against Neo-Con Plan To Invade Syria.” Now I told you that on Sunday, and on Monday we wrote an article. Several of the paragraphs are transcripts of what the president said.

I just almost don’t even want to say that, because the media goes so crazy with it. But I did say that on Sunday, and I did say that on Monday. What happened last night? And I do this more and more because [mainstream media] says we’re fake because we are the opposite, ladies and gentlemen. And they know it, and they can’t stand it.

“Trump: ‘We’re not going into Syria.’” So there you go, ladies and gentlemen. We’re not going into Syria. Let’s go ahead and play that clip right now.

[BEGIN CLIP]

DONALD TRUMP: We’re not going into Syria because you know there were some questions -- Nikki Haley is doing a great job, Rex [Tillerson] is doing a fantastic job, our secretary of state, General [H.R.] McMaster, fantastic -- but if you add it all up and if they take every little word they’ll say, “Oh, they’re different.” Just so you understand, we’re not going into Syria. But when I see people using horrible, horrible chemical weapons, which they agreed not to use under the Obama administration, but they violated it.

MARIA BARTIROMO: They said they got rid of them.

TRUMP: Look, what I did should have been done by the Obama administration a long time before I did it, and you would have a much better -- I think Syria would be a lot better off right now than it has been.

[END CLIP]

JONES: You know why the FBI admits a month ago in Congress that I’m under investigation and that I’m being wiretapped? Because I talk to the president and I talk to people who talk to the president every day. And they want to be able to say, “Mr. President, he’s under investigation -- you can’t talk to Alex Jones.” That’s why they want to put [Steve] Bannon under FBI investigation. And let me give you a little news flash, Bannon’s been under FBI investigation, they haven’t had the nerve to announce that yet.
