Trump dismisses US intel NKorea and Iran assessments as “naïve”

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday called top US intelligence chiefs “extremely passive and naive” in their assessments on North Korea and Iran to a Senate committee on Tuesday. They said the nuclear threat from N Korea remained and Iran was not taking steps towards making a nuclear bomb. “They are wrong!” Trump said in a Twitter post. Iran was coming very close to the edge. “Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!”

      Unlike his predecessor, Trump is smarter than his subordinates. Trump is the C-in-C. He better know more than his intel.

      @Davetheidiot. you are the idiot!!!! did you read what he said? or did u just jump and insult Trump as any other idiot Demon-rat does?
      The so called “intelligence” chiefs are lacking in intelligence or are just a bunch of Demon-rats who will say anything against what Trump says. I absolutely agree that Iran is planning to make a Nuclear bomb. In fact they used North Korea to do the testing for them and once they got the results they dumped Kim and that is when Kim got disillusioned and decided to start talking to the USA. Kim did not have any more tests to do. because the Iranians had completed their tests.

        rubbish. Kim is a China man that exists only to provide China with strategic depth. If he did what you said, he did it because china said he could.

        9/11 was an inside job. Find POTUS interview direct after 9/11 in which he describes how he had inspected the Twin Towers after the first attempt and that the only way they could come down was through demolition. And what about WTC 7 which came down at 5 pm in the afternoon withut any aircraft involved? See Dr Steve Piezcenik on 9/11. He says openly, as do many others, that 9/11 was orchestrated by the Bush crime syndicate.

    Thank god we have Trump. Why he cannot get rid of all the obama plants in the FBI and CIA is beyond me. Of course iran is working 24/7 on nuclear bombs, that is too obvious to debate. The obama plants think it will make their leader (hussein obama) look bad so they say (yes, leftist have no shame in flat out lying with a straight face) otherwise.

    Go Trump! Keep protecting America! Make America as great as possible, taking into account 8 years of irreversible damage by America hater hussein.

      You are right! these Demon-rats who disagree with Trump do so just because… they have no ability for critical thinking. they had been brainwashed by their left wing professors in the colleges.

    Globalists want World War III, and America to lead in personal, and resources,Trump not down with that. Syria’s war have nothing with America First. Iran and Israel are Putin problems, along with Kurds, best Erdogan pull his troops back to Turkey, as the U.S. troops withdrew to Iraq and Jordan. US intelligence chiefs junk that Globalist plan, and get on POTUS plan.

    Trump is right, and he is wrong.

    First, the language he is using is at best poorly chosen. There is almost never a good long-term benefit to publicly (or even privately) denigrating those who work for you.

    Secondly, the issue may be partly a matter of definitions. If I want to buy an item and am saving up for it, you can’t say that I’m buying the item because I’m not at the store and concluding the purchase. But my intention is to buy the item and since I’m saving for the purchase one could argue that I have a program for the purchase.

    Iran plans to have nuclear weapons. The question is a matter of when and how. Their program may be relatively quiescent right now but that doesn’t mean that they don’t plan to make their Shia nuclear weapons.

    China fully intends for North Korea to complete their “North Korean” nuclear weapon. With that weapon they can use North Korea as a proxy for threatening Taiwan and the USA.

    China has directly aided North Korea’s program at times.

    China has approved of indirect aid to, and protected Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s threatening of the USA and Europe does fit China’s agenda and China really wants Iranian oil.

    One can argue over the semantics of it all and then try to define the status with conflicting results and terms. But neither the Iranian government nor China’s proxy North Korean government have plans to truly abandon the pursuit of an effective strategic nuclear weapons force.

      @ George. What only matters is whether the person is globalist or not. See Republican John McCain meeting his ISIS buddies to help Clinton set up ISIS with weapons in 2013.

    Hitler thought he was smarter than his generals, too… and look where that got him. Hitler was a corporal who played at being general, Trump is a shady-deal businessman who is playing at world leader. Today we ask ourselves how an intelligent, Western, civilized society like 1930’s Germany could have ever selected a leader like Hitler (remember, he was voted into office). In the not too distant future they will be saying the same about America and Trump.

      You are writing libel, are you are aware of that? Your post could land you in trouble. Where is your proof that Trump was in shady-deals? The leftie-liberal media like the Clinton News Network?

    TRUMP IS REALLY A REAL PRESIDENT THE US SHOULD HAVE. FOR THE FIRST TIME OF US HISTORY WE SEE A PRESIDENT MORE INTELLIGENT , MORE CLEVER THAN HIS INTELLIENCY SERVICES , THAN HIS JUDICIAL SERVICE, THAN HIS GENERALS, THAN THE CHIEF OF THE F.E.D WHO WANTED THE GOOD ECONOMIC GROWTH INIATED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!! AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE SERVICES HAD FAILED IN THE PAST AND VERY OFTEN. THEY FAILED WITH IRAQ WAR THEY FAILED WITH 9/11 ATTACK. THEY FAILED TO KILL BIN LADEN IN AGFANISTAN BEFORE THE 9/11 AND AFTER THE FIRST ATTACK OF TWIN TOWER IN 1994. THE LIST OF US INTELLIGENCY SER

    MAGA Israel!

    Make Apartheid Great Again, Mr Trump, we’re losing it over here!

    Netanyahu is going down in flames, Gantz is going to be at the Hague over Protective Edge atrocities, Corbyn is going to declare the Palestinian state, and the Clean Break attack on Iran is now officially kaput, and the ICC is coming

    We’ve had it!

    Winter is coming and we can’t ski!
