President Trump's visit to the CIA on his first day in office mystified some agency veterans because of its combative, political tone. But several said they were glad that Trump seemed to have stopped demonizing the intelligence community and was presenting himself as its best friend.CIA veterans said that his private tour of CIA headquarters went better than his recorded public comments in front of the wall of stars commemorating fallen officers.Trump seems to understand that he will need a confident and supportive intelligence community if he hopes to be successful with his ambitious and disruptive global agenda.This rambling braggadocio is part of Trump's style, and the country (including the CIA) will have to get used to it.A veteran paramilitary officer said Trump and his chosen CIA director, Mike Pompeo, were seen as a welcome change by many CIA operations officers who have chafed under the leadership of John Brennan.
Trump’s unrealistic promises
to the Rust Belt may haunt him
The Pentagon can’t get everything it wants
Populists and traditionalists are battling in both parties
