Trump takes aim at Clapper

‘Maybe Clapper is being nice to me so he doesn’t lose his security clearance’
U.S. President Donald Trump stayed the course of his conflict with professional spies and strategists of the U.S. on Tuesday as debate continued on his decision last week to revoke the security clearance of former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director John Brennan. While a large segment of former officials of America’s security agencies hit back at the President for his move against Mr. Brennan, Mr. Trump got some unexpected support too.
Mr. Trump took potshots at former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who had supported Mr. Brennan last week before disapproving of his outbursts later.
