‘Wrong! Go Back To School!’: Trump Lashes Out At Intel Chiefs After They Contradict His Lies About Iran

Donald Trump started his Wednesday with a frantic rant against top U.S. intelligence leaders for contradicting what Rump has said about Iran’s nuclear developments.

In a pair of tweets, the president blasted the intel professionals as “wrong and naive.”

“The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran. They are wrong!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Trump, who claimed Iran has recently tested rockets, also mocked the intelligence leaders in his administration, suggesting they “should go back to school.”

The tweets came a day after Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel offered testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee that seemed to contradict things the president has said.

Coats testified that the intelligence community found that Iran is not currently seeking to develop its nuclear weapons capabilities, basing his remarks on an intelligence assessment.

“We continue to assess that Iran is not currently undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activities we judge necessary to produce a nuclear device,” the assessment reads.

The assessment warns that Iranian officials are threatening to begin building up the country’s nuclear capabilities if Tehran “does not gain the tangible trade and investment benefits it expected” from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), an Obama-era deal that Trump withdrew the U.S. from last year.

The two intelligence leaders also testified that ISIS remains a threat to the United States despite Trump’s repeated comments that they have been defeated.
