Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, told the Post that Trump takes the intelligence briefings very seriously.
“A president who I think came into the office thinking he would focus on domestic issues — ‘make America great again’ — has learned that you inherit the world and its problems when you’re president of the United States,” Coats told the Post.
“One time he came in and said, ‘All right, what’s the bad news this morning?’ ” he continued. “You can see the weight of the burden on the shoulders of the president.”
The “one time he vaguely asked about things!” standard is not, traditionally, presidential.
