Here, too, resist Coats Trump, has identified no risk of an interference of Russian Federation in the past and future of US presidential election speech.

In defending his foreign policy decisions, Trump tweeted Wednesday that the intelligence officials were "extremely passive and naïve".

President Trump slammed his own intelligence officials Wednesday morning, a day after they countered some of his claims in front of Congress.

Trump also said that when he became president two years ago, Islamic State "was out of control in Syria & running rampant".

In his arguments posted to Twitter, Trump accused Tehran of actively seeking nuclear weapons, reiterating the justification he gave for withdrawing past year from a multilateral treaty on Iran.

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. There economy is now crashing, which is the only thing holding them back.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said the USA faces a "toxic mix" from the "big four" adversaries - Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

Trump has repeatedly said in recent months that Islamic State had been defeated, justifying his abrupt announcement in December that he would pull U.S. troops out of Syria.

They have disputed the president's claims that Iran was developing nuclear weapons, that North Korea was willing to give up its nuclear weapons programme, that the Islamic State was decimated and it was time to bring home American troops deployed in Syria and Afghanistan.

The president also mentioned the negotiations between US officials and the Taliban to potentially end the war in Afghanistan.

The intelligence assessment of Afghanistan, more than 17 years into a conflict that began after the 9/11 attacks on the USA, projected a continued military stalemate.

It's the first time in about a month that the security adviser, considered a hardliner within the Trump administration, has openly spoken about North Korea. As Coats put it, ISIS will "very likely will continue to pursue external attacks from Iraq and Syria against regional and Western adversaries, including the United States" and "is intent on resurging and still commands thousands of fighters in Iraq and Syria".

Pelosi said Trump's comments were "stunning". He pointed to a halt in nuclear and missile tests by NKorea, the return of some U.S. service members' remains and the release of detained Americans as signs of progress. For instance, Trump has said ISIS was all but defeated while announcing he meant to pull troops from Syria. "We go at the Moment that North Korea is trying to keep weapons of mass destruction, and it is unlikely that they will give up their nuclear weapons and production capacity completely".

"Chairman Kim, we have a great chemistry, and we're well on our way", Trump said past year. Also, Tehran remains in compliance with the agreement despite the United States withdrawal.

He defended his handling of foreign policy, pointing to "tremendous progress" with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.
