Several national security officials told CNN that while they don't like the President's latest attacks on the intelligence community, they're not paying much notice.

"Be careful of Iran". The first round of sanctions went into force on August 6 and the second round, which targets Iran's oil exports and banks, were snapped back on November 4.

In May 2018, Trump withdrew the USA from that accord, which he called a awful deal that would not stop Iran from going nuclear.

Likewise, Trump boasted that Islamic State's self-proclaimed caliphate, which once covered vast areas of Iraq and Syria, will "soon be destroyed", something "unthinkable two years ago".

The report also said the Islamic State group "remains a terrorist and insurgent threat" inside Iraq, where the government faces "an increasingly disenchanted public".

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris Says She Will Run for President in 2020
Tulsi Gabbard , D-Hawaii, has said she has running, as has former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro. Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey, Sherrod Brown of OH and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota are also looking at the race.

President of the Trump up of this assessment in the Senate intelligence Committee completely unimpressed. The disparities could also discourage Americans from working in the intelligence field. "People risk their lives for the intelligence he just tosses aside on Twitter".

Democratic lawmakers serving on Congress' intelligence committees accused President Trump of undermining USA intelligence professionals.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House intelligence committee, credited the agencies with providing "rigorous and realistic analyses" of threats facing the nation.

Republican U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher, who served as a Marine Corps intelligence officer during the Iraq war, defended the intelligence agencies, saying: "They are doing a very hard job and they are actually trying to advance the president's priorities".

Coats said Moscow is preparing cyber attack capabilities that would "allow it to disrupt or damage US civilian and military infrastructure during a crisis" and Iran and North Korea pose increasing threats to the USA government and companies.

Trump's most important ally in the Senate, majority leader Mitch McConnell, warned of a "premature withdrawal" of USA troops from Afghanistan and Syria. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, on Tuesday called "a precipitous withdrawal" of US troops from Syria and Afghanistan.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have criticized the President for publicly attacking the intelligence community but there is little indication that Coats and Haspel could be in jeopardy of losing their jobs.

The Annual Worldwide Threat Assessment from the Directorate of National Intelligence (DNI) also analysed the threat faced from North Korea and its findings were again disputed by Trump.

According to allegations, Russian Federation used a mix of social media influence and old-fashioned cyberattacks in 2016 to sway the elections in favour of Donald Trump - something that both the Kremlin and Trump himself have repeatedly denied.

"He is putting you and your colleagues in an untenable position and hurting the national interest in the process", Schumer added.
