President Donald Trump on Friday claimed he doesn’t “know Matt Whitaker,” the man he picked to serve as the acting attorney general, despite reports that the two met in the Oval Office at least a dozen times, along with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump said that while he doesn’t know Whitaker, he knows he’s “very respected” in the law enforcement community.
