President Trump addressed a packed crowd at CIA headquarters on Saturday to let them know he is completely behind them in spite of his past feuding with former CIA Director John Brennan.
A former aide to Brennan, Nick Shapiro, said Brennan was upset with Trump’s remarks and tweeted out the comments Brennan had for President Trump.
Shapiro said that Brennan believes President Trump should be ashamed of himself for using the wall as a backdrop for his comments. But not everyone from the CIA agrees with Brennan.
A former CIA agent and Trump supporter told NBC that the media doesn’t get it — this is not like any other president. “The critics hate this president so much they cannot get past it. The truth of the visit was in the face-to-face meetings – people were happy to talk to him. That assuaged a lot of concerns and a lot of anxiety.”
Trump pledged a “1,000 percent” level of support for the CIA, and he said he would be giving them so much backing that they will “plead for him to stop giving them so much backing.”
President Trump also spent some time discussing the dishonest media to the crowd of agents, all of whom broke out in applause when Trump mentioned his disdain for the press.
