President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday 12/11/2016 defended his decision not to receive the daily intelligence briefings that his predecessors did, saying he doesn’t want to be “told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years.”
Asked on “Fox News Sunday” about his decision to receive a Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) just once a week, which is highly unusual compared to other recent presidents, Mr. Trump replied: “I get it when I need it.”
“You know, I’m, like, a smart person,” he said. “I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. Could be eight years — but eight years. I don’t need that. But I do say, ‘If something should change, let us know.’”
He added that Vice President-elect Mike Pence and his top generals are receiving the highly classified briefings — and said he’s always available to receive extra briefings if there are fast-changing situations that need his attention.
“These are very good people that are giving me the briefings,” he said. “And I say, ‘If something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one-minute’s notice.’”
But the Mainstream Media has tried to scrub Trumps remark about one minutes notice It’s available HERE.
Last week, on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” former CIA director Leon Panetta stressed how unusual Mr. Trump’s decision is, and said he is concerned by the president-elect’s seeming lack of interest in the intelligence briefings. Those are some of the reasons Panetta was so incapable and why President Obama made a mistake hiring Panetta.
Panetta is being childish saying Trump lacks interest in the intelligence briefings. Trump didn’t say he’s not interested. Vice President Pence will receive them. He will immediately pass on to President Trump whatever is necessary for President Trump to know.
Even better for America is President Trump will not get bogged down in the minutiae of government so he will be able to make the big decisions a President should make, the decisione to restore America to our rightful place in the world and to Make America Great Again, unlike President Obama who lowered the esteem rightfully due to America. the Free World is delighted President Obama will no longer be President and even happier Donald Trump will be. .
