Trump

President Donald Trump alienated the intelligence community when he referred to top intelligence officials as "naive", "Passive" and "weak".

Trump's latest outburst comes a day after members of his own national security team contradicted some of his biggest policy claims.

According to Bloomberg.com, President Trump said US intelligence agency leaders should "go back to school" after he tweeted that Iran is still testing rockets.

Trump tweeted on Wednesday:

"The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran. They are wrong! When I became President Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond. Since ending the terrible Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but... ....a source of potential danger and conflict. They are testing Rockets (last week) and more, and are coming very close to the edge. There economy is now crashing, which is the only thing holding them back. Be careful of Iran. Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!”

His tweets did not sit well with members of intelligence agencies, who might consider retaliating by leaking secrets to the anti-Trump media.

Trump's top spy chief told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that North Korea and the Islamic State remain threats to the United States, despite the President's claims that he made great progress in getting Kim Jong Un to disarm his nuclear weapons and destroy rocket launching pads.

US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) defended intelligence officials on Wednesday, tweeting: "it is a credit to our intelligence agencies that they continue to provide rigorous and realistic analyses of the threats we face. It’s deeply dangerous that the White House isn’t listening."

And Senator Mark Warner warned Trump to tiptoe carefully when discussing intelligence officials who keep the country safe from our enemies.

Warner tweeted that "the President has a dangerous habit of undermining the intelligence community to fit his alternate reality. People risk their lives for the intelligence he just tosses aside on Twitter."

    What makes it so sad is these brave women and men put their life on the line. Ever watched the news and a clip of the CIA comes on? Know what those stars represent? Brave women and men who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep this country safe. This man is disgrace to the memory of those who gave their life to keep this country safe. These women and men should be honored not scorned by a president who took the oath of office.

    The MF is going to get us all killed. His sheeple included. This man literally unraveling before our very eyes. It's straight up scary.
    I have a family member that literally put a meme on FB about how one man was responsible for the damn holocaust with his divisive rhetoric, BUT, still put up a meme with the MAGA hat talking about how its triggering folks into thinking its racist yet it isn't. Can't / won't / refuses to see the damn irony. I just can't with people who follow this man anymore. Just cannot do it any longer.

    The good news is the president can’t use the nukes for shits and giggles like he’s trying out a new toy. There is a protocol guided by the Geneva Convention. There are only certain circumstances in which he is able to get the codes. If the circumstances ain’t met the person holding the football must decline the president’s request or face penalties such as jail.

    With the beating the Republicans took with the Trump Shutdown I think they are about to take their oversight duties a lot more seriously. He is not the shot caller that he has been for the past two years and this next budget show down could finish him off. If that happens, like a wounded animal of course he could be more dangerous.

If this is true for me working in an HR office, then how can Trump possibly believe that he knows more than these seasoned professional National Security EXPERTS???????

He is Putin's flunky!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    What kills me is that Trump is saying that he will built the wall by declaring a national emergency.

    Well that pretty much eliminated any leverage his potential veto had because Republicans will pass the budget or CR with a veto proof majority and allow Trump to get the wall via an executive order which will be immediately challenged in court.

    Trump keeps sabotaging himself.

    He's right. The Intelligence community dropped the ball when it came to Pearl Harbor and 9-1-1. Iran is a huge threat and they're backed by Putin. They've always been backed by Russia. Read up on the Iran and Iraq war. So how could the President be supporting Putin when he is speaking out against Putin's ally. Do your research dummies! My President knows what he's talking about. That's why he's the President and you're NOT!!!!

    "I applaud you and your colleagues in the Intelligence Community for being clear-eyed about the threats we face, but you cannot allow the President's ill-advised and unwarranted comments today to stand," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote in his letter. | Zach Gibson/Getty Images

    Schumer urges Coats to stage intelligence intervention with Trump

    By BRENT D. GRIFFITHS
    01/30/2019 11:13 PM EST

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer swiped at President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening, urging America's top intelligence official to stage an intervention and educate the commander in chief about how important it is for him to back the U.S.intelligence community.

    "I believe it is incumbent on you, Director Wray and Director Haspel to insist on an immediate meeting with the President to educate him about the facts and raw intelligence underlying the Intelligence Community assessments ...," Schumer (D-N.Y.) wrote in a letter to Dan Coats, the U.S. director of national intelligence.

    Coats, who served with Schumer in the Senate, publicly undercut Trump's statements on Tuesday during a Senate Intelligence Community hearing where he spoke about ISIS' strength, North Korea nuclear weapons program and the Iran nuclear deal in vastly different terms than Trump does.

    Coats was joined by FBI Director Chris Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel, all of whom became the target of Trump's ire Wednesday morning for their statements.

    Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning that it was time for the advisers he appointed to "go back to school." The president's taunt was the latest in an ongoing feud he's had with the broader U.S. intelligence community dating back to his time as a presidential candidate.

    Schumer added that Trump's criticism of Coats "is putting you and your colleagues in an untenable position and hurting the national interest in the process."

    "I applaud you and your colleagues in the Intelligence Community for being clear-eyed about the threats we face, but you cannot allow the President's ill-advised and unwarranted comments today to stand," Schumer wrote, urging Coats to find a way to make clear to Trump just how his words cause problems.

    Spelled “their” wrong and in the next sentence tells somebody to go back to school ? I’m convinced he’s trolling every time he speaks.

    I read that mess yesterday. I fell out when Chuck told folks 2 educate the President on issues.

    He also can't see the "Domestic Danger" w/in the U.S. He is too busy trying to keep "Brown" people out and distressed, however, "liquid paper colored" people are constantly murdering and killing their own. Wait, why am I ...? Never mind.

    I watched this whole thing. This was just sad...what other way can you describe a BILLIONAIRE treating a Championship winning football team to Fast Food?! It just does not add up. If Obama had of done this...He would've been dragged to hell! Seriously.

    The people are not going to like anything that comes out of his mouth. The intelligence agency and The President never had a good relationship.

    Schumer urges Coats to stage intelligence intervention with Trump

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer swiped at President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening, urging America's top intelligence official to stage an intervention and educate the commander in chief about how important it is for him to back the U.S.intelligence community.

    "I believe it is incumbent on you, Director Wray and Director Haspel to insist on an immediate meeting with the President to educate him about the facts and raw intelligence underlying the Intelligence Community assessments ...," Schumer (D-N.Y.) wrote in a letter to Dan Coats, the U.S. director of national intelligence.

    Coats, who served with Schumer in the Senate, publicly undercut Trump's statements on Tuesday during a Senate Intelligence Community hearing where he spoke about ISIS' strength, North Korea nuclear weapons program and the Iran nuclear deal in vastly different terms than Trump does.

    Coats was joined by FBI Director Chris Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel, all of whom became the target of Trump's ire Wednesday morning for their statements.

    Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning that it was time for the advisers he appointed to "go back to school." The president's taunt was the latest in an ongoing feud he's had with the broader U.S. intelligence community dating back to his time as a presidential candidate.

    Schumer added that Trump's criticism of Coats "is putting you and your colleagues in an untenable position and hurting the national interest in the process."
