Madeleine Albright 'stunned' by Trump's dressing down of intel chiefs

Before the Thursday meeting, Trump seemed to double down on his disagreement with his spies, telling the press "I disagree with certain things they said", and insisting "Time will prove me right, probably". "I would suggest you read the COMPLETE testimony from Tuesday".

"Now that's an ideal, I know, and these things are going to move haltingly along different courses".

"When I became President, Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond".

Speaking weeks before Trump is due to meet the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in a second summit, Biegun said the denuclearisation process relied on Pyongyang providing a detailed account of its nuclear and missile programmes.

While Trump has offered few specifics to back up his broad assertion that he is correct on the issues of disagreement with the nation's most senior intelligence officials, he made it clear he is still not happy about their testimony during Tuesday's Senate hearing, which contradicted numerous administration claims of foreign policy success. "They're headed that way now to lay the foundations for what I hope will be a substantial additional step toward the path for not only denuclearization of the peninsula but a brighter future for the North Korean people", Pompeo said. He added: "Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!". This is despite the USA withdrawal from the bargain previous year, and its reimposition of sanctions on Iran's banks and oil exports.

And finally, Trump does not consider ISIS as much of a threat as it used to be before his presidency, despite apprehensions from the intelligence community. "They are wrong!" tweeted Trump on Wednesday.

He admitted that the USA and North Korea did not have an agreed definition of denuclearisation, but was blunt about United States expectations and said Mr Trump had made clear he expected "significant and verifiable progress on denuclearisation" to emerge from the next summit.

Trump pulled out of the deal past year, saying it was the worst in history and would allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon.

The cancellation came a day after CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, along with a number of other senior intelligence officials, discussed their assessment of national security threats in a way that undermined a number of Trump's recent claims. Since ending the bad Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict.

By Thursday, Trump's tone had changed, at least publicly.

He said Washington would not lift sanctions until denuclearisation was complete, but added: "We did not say we will not do anything until you do everything". They are testing Rockets (last week) and more, and are coming very close to the edge. First he said that North Korea was not likely to give up its nuclear weapons.

In response to Trump's tweets, Democrat Representative and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam B. Schiff said it was risky for the President to dismiss the findings of his own intelligence agencies.

Schumer urged Coats and other officials to "educate" Trump about the facts and raw intelligence underlying threat assessments so the administration can speak "with a unified and accurate voice about national security threats".

In a series of tweets, Trump boasted about the "tremendous progress" against ISIS.
