>> Ex-CIA Director John Brennan, slamming US President Donald Trump for what he saw as a self-promotional speech before a revered CIA Memorial Wall during a visit to the headquarters Saturday. In a statement through his aide, Brennan bashed Trump, saying quote, he should be ashamed of himself for quote, a despicable display of self-aggrandizement.
Trump's speech at times meandering off topic, touching upon everything from the size of his inauguration to an attack on the media.>> I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.>>
Trump on Sunday tweeted the visit had been great, saying he had paid great respect to the Wall.
It would have been even better if more of it had been about CIA. But some at the Agency welcomed his message of backing the CIA after months of feuding over claims that Russia hacked the US election.>> I know maybe sometimes you haven't gotten the backing that you've wanted.
And you're gonna get so much backing. Maybe you're gonna say please don't give us so much backing.>>
