Trump branded 'extraordinarily inappropriate' amid widespread astonishment at president's attack on intelligence chiefsDonald Trump’s criticism of the US intelligence community as “extremely passive and naïve” has provoked widespread astonishment among lawmakers in Washington. The president was reportedly seething on Wednesday morning as he watched highlights of intelligence chiefs, including director of national intelligence Dan Coats, counter his views on a number of foreign policy issues during testimony on Capitol Hill. Mr Coats had suggested during the Senate intelligence committee briefing on Tuesday that Iran was avoiding steps towards a nuclear bomb, Isis was returning in Iraq and Syria, and North Korea was unlikely to give up its nuclear weapons.
