Trump's speech at Langley 'deeply saddened' Brennan

Trump's speech at Langley 'deeply saddened' Brennan

"There is nobody that feels stronger about the intelligence community and the CIA than Donald Trump", Trump said.

Conway also told ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that Trump supports his press secretary after Sean Spicer slammed the media from the White House podium Saturday. "And I just want to let you know that the reason you're the No. 1 stop is exactly the opposite".

On Dec. 9, 2016, the Washington Post reported that intelligence officials had concluded that Russian Federation had interfered with the presidential election to undermine Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"The point is this: One bad actor in the intelligence community doesn't taint President Trump's view of the entire intelligence community". His feud with the country's intelligence community, in the run-up to his inauguration, was unprecedented.

Accompanied by National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his nominee to lead the CIA, Mr Mike Pompeo, Mr Trump said the media "are among the most dishonest people on earth".

Priebus also blasted former CIA Director John Brennan for his criticisms of Trump.

"We're all on the same wavelength, right?" he asked, referring in particular to the fight against the Islamic State (IS) group. With a swipe at President Obama, he claimed, "We have not used the real abilities we have".

Trump added that he and his senior aides will "face many challenges but with the faith in each other and the faith in God we will get the job done".

"Maybe sometimes you haven't got the backing that you've wanted", Trump said.

Police embarked on a search and found the crocodile next to the man's body about two kilometers downstream. Cahill's Crossing is notorious for crocodiles and to walk across it to me is just foolishness.

"We're going to end it".

His former aide Nick Shapiro released a statement that said: "Brennan is deeply saddened and angered at Donald Trump's despicable display of self-aggrandisement in front of CIA's Memorial Wall of Agency heroes".

"I think it was disgraceful - disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out", he said.

"I looked out, the field was - it looked like a million, a million and a half people".

"They sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the Intelligence Community".

Central Intelligence Agency analysts may have been shocked at Trump's blatant lies on the crowd size, but they were likely terrified by his statements on Iraq.

Suggestions of weak enthusiasm for his inauguration clearly irked the new president. He also said that he suspected most of the people in the room voted for him in the election-a comment that, whether true or not, is appallingly inappropriate to make to intelligence analysts, who pride themselves on their independence and fear political encroachment above all else.

"You are going to be getting a total star, a gem", Trump said. "You're going to say, 'Please don't give me so much backing".

Trump speculated that "probably nearly everybody in this room voted for me, but I will not ask you to raise your hands if you did".
