Trump Renews Attacks on U.S. Intelligence Community for Contradicting Him

President Trump on Wednesday renewed his attacks on the intelligence community, calling them “extremely passive and naive” after Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and other senior intelligence leaders contradicted the president’s assertions on Iran, North Korea, and ISIS. “They are wrong!” Trump wrote in a pair of early-morning tweets bashing “the intelligence people” for testifying on Tuesday that Iran is not currently taking the steps that intelligence officials believe would be necessary for them to produce a nuclear device an assessment at odds with Trump’s assertion that the regime was cheating on the spirit of the 2015 deal curtailing its nuclear program.
