Trump calls his own intel chiefs 'extremely passive and naive'

A senior Trump administration official and a source with knowledge of the meeting told CNN that the current plan is for the second summit between President Trump and the North Korean leader Un to be held in the Vietnamese coastal city of Da Nang. "I think most of you know where the location is".

"And I worked for presidents that actually were interested in knowing what was going on and knew what the role of the intelligence community is and was".

Pyongyang has yet to take concrete steps in that direction, in Washington's view, and the director of USA national intelligence, Mr Dan Coats, told Congress on Tuesday that it was unlikely to give up all of its nuclear weapons and has continued activity inconsistent with pledges to denuclearise.

Earlier, on Wednesday, the president had called United States intelligence chiefs "extremely passive and naive" and advised them to go back to school after they contradicted him on threats posed by Iran, North Korea and ISIS during congressional testimony.

The views of the United States intelligence community appeared to be incompatible with other claims by Trump, including that North Korea remains a threat. "That is correct. We didn't say we won't do anything until you do everything", he said.

The USIC briefing before the Senate reflected the collective insights of the Intelligence Community about the biggest security threats now facing the United States.

The president said he hadn't seen the report from his Intelligence officials, but argued their assessments are not accurately covered by the media.

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