This is not normal.
There are five options here: Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats knowingly gave false or misleading information to Congress. This should be investigated and if true, he should step down.
Option two: The Director and National Intelligence and Trump were given or arrived at differing views on the same intelligence. This is less awful but it should be fixed.
Option three: Trump is lying. This is the most likely. There should be an investigation on why he is lying. Was it to purposefully contradict his own staff? Was he put up to it by a third party?
Option four: Trump was never given the correct intelligence. If so, there should be an investigation on why and who is giving him incorrect intel and why that might be.
Option five: Trump failed to comprehend the correct intelligence. If this is true, he is unfit for office.
I can’t see a positive spin here.
“On Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said intelligence information does not support the idea that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will eliminate his nuclear weapons.
Trump insisted on Wednesday on Twitter that the relationship with North Korea “is the best it has ever been with the U.S.”
