Trump attempts to gaslight the CIA on first visit while on hallowed ground!
“In recent weeks, Mr. Trump has upbraided the intelligence community for leaks and questioned its conclusion that Russia meddled in the United States election on his behalf. On Saturday, he said journalists were responsible for any suggestion that he was not fully supportive of intelligence agencies’ work.” (From New York Times, January 21, 20217)
At his visit to the CIA Saturday, President Trump said:
“I have a running war with the media,” Mr. Trump said. “They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth, and they sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community.”
“The reason you’re the No. 1 stop is, it is exactly the opposite,” Mr. Trump added. “I love you, I respect you, there’s nobody I respect more.”
Mr. Trump within the last week accused the CIA agency of behaving like Nazi Germany. Now he’s ignoring his feud with the CIA over the Russian hacking, the leaked CIA memo from the intelligence briefing blaming the media for his feud with the CIA without taking any responsibility.
The New York Times has posted an article on Trump’s visit to CIA today which turned out to be another stop on Trump’s self-aggrandizement tour and continued war with the media in front of a wall of unknown deceased CIA officers who gave their lives for the safety and security of our country. All we can say is “Wow!” What do you think?
