Trump criticized for attacking his own intelligence team as "passive and naive"

In his tweets, Trump wrote that when he became president, the Islamic State "was out of control in Syria & running rampant". "Since ending the awful Iran Nuclear Deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict", Trump tweeted.

"They are testing Rockets (last week) and more, and are coming very close to the edge", the president wrote on Twitter.

Trump said the only thing holding Iran back is its "crashing" economy.

Trump continued: "Be careful of Iran". "Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school", Trump said.

In his tweets on Wednesday, Trump said negotiations with the Taliban to wind down the war in Afghanistan were "proceeding well". "It said we will begin the immediate denuclearization".

Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats noted that the terrorist group has suffered "significant leadership and territorial losses".

Political interference, using social media and cyber attacks, was scarcely mentioned in threat assessments before a year ago, but was listed second behind cyber attacks in Tuesday's array of the challenges facing US national security policy-makers.

President Trump receives regular intelligence briefings from his trusted staff.

In response to questions from lawmakers, Coats said the administration has "eyes wide open" in its talks with the Pyongyang regime, and "we are fully engaged in providing the essential intelligence needed".

The US intelligence agencies also said Iran continues to work with other parties to the nuclear deal it reached with the US and other world powers.

He emphasized that China and Russian Federation "are more aligned than at any point since the mid-1950s" and, pointing at activity that is inconsistent with full denuclearization, did not believe North Korea would ever give up its entire nuclear arsenal. "Moscow may employ additional influence toolkits - such as spreading disinformation, conducting hack-and-leak operations, or manipulating data - in a more targeted fashion to influence USA policy, actions, and elections".

The is is defeated, according to Trump's largely why the US troops from Syria deducted.

Mr. Trump also boasted about the Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS, being almost wiped out, compared to the previous administration. U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel, and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray were also there.

On the heels of our successful efforts to protect the integrity of the 2018 midterm elections we are now focused on incorporating lessons learned in preparation for the 2020 elections, Dan Coats said. For instance, Trump has said ISIS was all but defeated while announcing he meant to pull troops from Syria.

Trump spent yesterday morning in a defensive twitter storm about his foreign policy initiatives after Coats contradicted his claim of success after his summit with Kim Jong-Un. Coats said likewise that they had observed activity "inconsistent with full denuclearization".

It's not the first time Trump has clashed with his own intelligence officials. Trump called it "the worst deal ever".
