Many people reading Trump's Thursday tweets - including former federal ethics chief Walter Shaub - were stunned that the president would claim that testimony everyone could watch on TV was somehow distorted.
Despite that optimism, Trump's director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, told Congress on Tuesday that intelligence information doesn't support the idea that Kim will eliminate his nuclear weapons or the capacity for building more.
Additionally, North Korea released a bombshell statement in December, saying they won't give up their nuclear weapons unless the US does so first.
"It's bigger than denuclearization, while it stands on the foundation of denuclearization, but that's the opportunity we have and those are the discussions we will be having with the North Koreans".
Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel also warned ISIS was still risky after Trump claimed they had been beaten. That school, however, could be Fox News - the network aired a segment on an opinion show the president often cites in his tweets Tuesday evening slamming the intel chiefs.
A day after he lashed out at US intelligence agency chiefs over their assessments of global threats, President Donald Trump abruptly reversed course and said that he and the intelligence community "are all on the same page".
"No, I disagree with certain things that they said".
They'll be tasked with "achieving a set of concrete deliverables, a road map of negotiations and declarations going forward, and a shared understanding of the desired outcome of our joint efforts", Biegun said Thursday during a speech at Stanford University.
Democrats and left-leaning groups, however, say a national emergency would bring immediate legal challenges.
Pompeo said on Wednesday that North Korea had agreed that the summit would be held at the end of February and that it would be "some place in Asia".
"You look at what's happened in Syria with respect to ISIS and the caliphate, we took over a lot of area in the last two weeks".
Soon after his Twitter outburst, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer criticized the President and called on Coats to stage an intervention with the President. In particular, Coats said Iran was still complying with the Obama-era nuclear deal and did not appear to be trying to make the A-bomb.
"We'll be announcing early next week and they very much want the meeting", Trump told reporters in the White House.
"As the middle of the nation awoke on Thursday, the deep freeze seemed to have settled in for a long, unwanted visit, disrupting life across an entire region for much of a week, contributing to deaths and injuries, and leaving residents impatient to emerge from their homes and get back to normal".
