LANGLEY, Virginia (AP) — President Donald Trump is denying he feuded with the nation’s intelligence agencies — telling CIA officers that it was “exactly the opposite.”

Trump visited CIA headquarters on Saturday in one of his first stops as president.

Despite his denial, the new president in fact had accused intelligence agencies of delaying his briefing about Russia’s attempts to hack last year’s election, and belittled their assessment.

Earlier this month he also questioned whether outgoing CIA director John Brennan was the “leaker of fake news.”
