On Fox News Sunday, Donald Trump responded to his critics who feel he needs to have a daily intelligence briefing. Using common sense Trump basically said he doesn’t need to be told the same thing everyday for 8 years.
The Hill reported:”I get it when I need it,” the president-elect said in an interview that aired Sunday on “Fox News Sunday.”
“First of all, these are very good people that are giving me the briefings. And I say, ‘If something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one-minute’s notice.'”
A report published last week said the president-elect receives on average only one presidential intelligence briefing a week. That number is far lower than his predecessors, according to the Reuters report.
Trump suggested during the interview it isn’t necessary for him to receive the presidential briefings daily.
“I’m, like, a smart person,” the president-elect said during the interview.
“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.”
