Daily in­tel re­ports for Trump

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Martin Ward,

I see that on the Sun­day po­lit­i­cal shows, Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump said he wasn’t tak­ing the daily in­tel­li­gence brief­ing be­cause “I’m, like, a smart guy.” I would point out to the fu­ture pres­i­dent that be­ing “like” a smart guy is not ac­tu­ally the same thing as be­ing a smart guy. Trump needs to sit in on the brief­ings. Even if he is a smart guy, he doesn’t know ev­ery­thing these guys know be­cause he hasn’t stud­ied it in the de­tail they have. He must learn to lis­ten and ask ques­tions, not ig­nore their in­for­ma­tion just be­cause he doesn’t want to hear what it has to say.
