Trump Says He Doesn't Trust And Won't Use, US Intelligence

At this point someone just needs to dope-smack this guy upside the head.

Donald Trump was interviewed by a Fox News reporter for Fox and Friends and said he doesn't trust US intelligence gatherers and will not use them as President.

Yes, yes, we've all heard the puns about Donald Trump not having any intelligence. Thanks.

As far as military intelligence gathering goes, Trump said "the people that have been doing it for our country, I mean, look what’s happened over the last 10 years. … It’s been catastrophic. Very easy to use them, but I won't use them, because they’ve made such bad decisions.”

Trump neglected to remember or point out how the George W. Bush administration doctored intelligence and ignored experts in their pursuit of a war in Iraq. But I digress.

This point may be moot, as "CIA Director John Brennan has already suggested he would resign rather than comply with Trump’s orders to employ harsh interrogation methods or torture against America's enemies." reports The Hill.

Trump is about to receive his first "intelligence briefing" as the Republican nominee for President.
