Presidents can declassify documents "even by thinking about it," former President Trump claimed in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity that aired Wednesday night.
"There doesn't have to be a process, as I understand it," Trump told Hannity. "You know, there's different people say different things, but as I understand, there doesn't have to be — if you're the President of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it's declassified, even by thinking about it. Because you're sending it to Mar-a-Lago or to wherever you're sending it. And there doesn't have to be a process. There can be a process, but there doesn't have to be. You're the president – you make that decision. So when you send it, it's declassified. I declassified everything."
