North Korea summit details to be announced next week

Spy Chief Doubts Kim Will Scrap Nukes Undercutting Trump's View

Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!'

President Donald Trump claimed on Thursday that his top intelligence officials told him their Senate testimony was "totally misquoted" - even though it had aired live on TV.

In his tweets on Wednesday, Trump said negotiations with the Taliban to wind down the war in Afghanistan were "proceeding well". "And so I am stunned by this", said Albright, who served under former President Bill Clinton.

North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump during the 2018 North Korea-United States summit in Singapore. But following a meeting with his intelligence leaders on Thursday, Trump issued another series of posts, this time blasting the press for having "mischaracterized" and "distorted" what was said at the hearing. "I just tell you that we are doing really well", he said, before turning his attention to the increase in military spending on his watch. A false narrative is so bad for our Country.

In his most detailed public remarks on his approach to North Korea after five months in his role, Biegun said the United States had told the North it was prepared to pursue commitments made in Singapore "simultaneously and in parallel" and had already eased rules on delivery of humanitarian aid to it. He met with Haspel, Coats, and Deputy Director of National Intelligence Edward Gistaro in the Oval Office that afternoon, tweeting a picture of their conversation. "I think that part of being a responsible public servant and a leader is to listen to different opinions and to understand and to ask in depth what is going on instead of putting them down".

"Time will prove me right, probably". So that's the story. "That's the story. I have great respect for a lot of people, but I don't always agree with everybody, OK?" he concluded, again referring to his intel chiefs.

On Wednesday, the President chastised the intelligence community as a whole for being soft on Iran and implied that he had a better sense of dangers posed by the Islamic Republic than those who had testified on the matter the day before. The draft report from the Defense Department's inspector general is believed to say that ISIS fighters in Syria could regain control of a sizeable region in six to 12 months, two U.S. officials told NBC News.

'Good chance' he will declare emergency for wall money
Senate Republicans said they are eager to move beyond the threat of another shutdown and are hoping Trump will seal a deal.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and the heads of America's intelligence agencies on Tuesday presented lawmakers with their annual global threats assessment.

National Intelligence Director Dan Coats also said that US national security is threatened by climate change, while Trump thinks that global warming is not real.

While Biegun conceded there was "more work ahead of us than behind us", Trump appeared upbeat about the prospects for a second summit with Kim.

Ned Price, a former National Security Council official during President Barack Obama's administration, told INSIDER that a sitting USA president mocking and contradicting the intelligence community to the public is concerning.

During the campaign, he tried to undermine public confidence in the intelligence community's unanimous conclusion that Russian Federation had interfered with the 2016 election to help elect Trump.

The Republican and Democratic leaders of the intelligence committee defended the officials.
