President Trump declared that "the Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran. They are wrong! When I became president Iran was making trouble all over the Middle East, and beyond. Since ending the terrible Iran nuclear deal, they are MUCH different, but a source of potential danger and conflict. They are testing rockets... and more, and are coming very close to the edge. There [sic] economy is now crashing, which is the only thing holding them back". "Be careful of Iran", Trump added. "Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!".
