Reuters: Trump Receiving Intelligence Briefings Just Once A Week

AP

Donald Trump receives only one intelligence brief each week on average, fewer briefings than past presidents sat for before taking office, Reuters reported on Friday, citing unnamed U.S. officials.

CBS News reported on Thursday that Trump has declined several intelligence briefings since the election, citing an unnamed Senate aide.

Previous reports at the end of November indicated that Trump had at that point received just two intelligence briefings since the election. Mike Pence reportedly received intelligence briefings almost daily in November, and Reuters reported that Pence currently sits for the briefings six days per week.
