Trump criticizes media for lowballing crowd size at his inauguration

Trump criticizes media for lowballing crowd size at his inauguration

"It's a lie", Trump said of the crowd estimates for Friday's event. "He was an academic genius, and then they say, there's Donald Trump, an intellectual, trust me, I'm like a smart person". The photos, Trump implied, were faked by the media.

He also claimed God intervened to stop it raining on his inauguration. They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth, right? At one point, Trump claimed that most of the people in the room had voted for him.

Trump's visit is seen as part of a bid to mend fences after he strained relations with intelligence officials by repeatedly casting doubt on their assessment that Russian Federation had carried out cyberattacks during the campaign.

"I am with you 1,000%", Trump said after receiving intelligence briefings from top officials.

President Donald Trump's pick to run the CIA, Rep. Mike Pompeo, has told Congress that he would consider bringing back waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation measures under certain circumstances.

Standing in front of a wall full of stars, possibly the CIA Memorial Wall, representing CIA employees who have died, Trump also told CIA employees that he had been on the cover of Time magazine more than anyone in history; Time magazine disputed that Saturday afternoon, saying President Richard Nixon holds that record.

His speech follows repeated and sharp public criticism of the Central Intelligence Agency before and after the election. Meanwhile, Trump often spoke well of Putin during his campaign while strongly criticizing USA intelligence agencies. He has put quotation marks around the word "intelligence" in referring to such officials.

The nomination of Pompeo, a fourth term congressmen from the USA state of Kansas, has generated controversy because of tensions between Trump and former CIA Director John Brennan.

At the CIA, Trump blamed the "dishonest" media for the perceived rift with the Intelligence Community.

The discredited dossier was drawn up by an ex-British spy and made its way to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and then the wider intelligence community before being leaked. "We're going to start winning again, and you will be leading the charge". "You'll say, 'Please, Mr. President, please don't give us so much backing'". "We have not used the real abilities that we have. We have to get rid of ISIS we have no choice", he said to applause.

"Radical Islamic terrorism has to be eradicated - this is evil".
