US Intelligence Contradicts Trump on N. Korea, Iran, IS Threats

U.S. intel agencies: Russia and China plotting to interfere in 2020 election

Iran, however, has identified Trump as one of the greatest dangers, attest to the intelligence services, in turn, contract loyalty.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA director Gina Haspel told politicians Pyongyang viewed its nuclear program as vital to the country's survival and was unlikely to give it up.

Coats's assessment on North Korean intentions had particular impact as it comes in the run-up to a planned second summit at the end of February between Trump and Kim Jong-un.

Vietnam said last week it had not been informed about any time or venue for a possible Trump-Kim summit, but that it was confident in its ability to host such a meeting.

Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked the United States intelligence services as "naive" and "wrong" on the threat he says is posed by Iran.

In his arguments posted to Twitter, Trump accused Tehran of actively seeking nuclear weapons, reiterating the justification he gave for withdrawing a year ago from a multilateral treaty on Iran.

The US intelligence agencies also said Iran continues to work with other parties to the nuclear deal it reached with the US and other Western nations. In doing so, they said, it has at least temporarily lessened the nuclear threat.

Under the 2015 deal, Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.

In mid-December, however, as he announced he was withdrawing the 2,000 USA troops stationed in Syria, Trump declared, "We have won against ISIS", an acronym for Islamic State.

Coats told the committee that Russian Federation and perhaps other countries will likely use social media and other means to influence the 2020 US presidential election.

"They said they were totally misquoted and they were totally - it was taken out of context", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. The relationship between the United States and North Korea was as good as ever, he tweeted.

"While we do not believe Iran is now undertaking the key activities we judge necessary to produce a nuclear device, Iranian officials have publicly threatened to push the boundaries of JCPOA restrictions if Iran does not gain the tangible financial benefits it expected from the deal", Coats said Tuesday. "People risk their lives for the intelligence he just tosses aside on Twitter".

A number of observers criticized Trump's response.

The president's comments drew rebukes from the ranking Democrats on the Senate and House intel panels, Sen.
