In a major interview with the New York Times, President Donald Trump claimed that both CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats groveled before him after he chewed them out for contradicting him during Senate testimony.

DPRK leader Kim Jong Un (R) meets with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Pyongyang, DPRK, May 9, 2018. "If the talks are held in Pyongyang, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's instructions can be delivered immediately".

The next morning, the White House canceled the president's daily briefing as Trump lambasted his intelligence chiefs on Twitter over their congressional testimony.

That envoy, Special Representative Stephen Biegun, is now saying Kim committed to destroying plutonium and uranium enrichment facilities, even though he conceded the two sides have not publicly agreed on what "denuclearization" means - the commitment made at the leaders' first summit last summer.

"President Trump is ready to end this war, it is over, it is done, we are not going to invade North Korea, we are not seeking to topple the regime", Biegun told the audience during the question and answer portion of his appearance.

On Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security shut down a website that had been created for the University of Farmington. He said what the University of Farmington was offering - allowing students to work while enrolled - is not unusual.

Mr Coats is a former Republican senator who serves in Mr Trump's cabinet. "Our assessment is bolstered by our observations of some activity that is inconsistent with full denuclearisation".

The intelligence leader also dubbed China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran the "Big Four" when it comes to the biggest national security threats faced by the United States in recent years.

"I have this flawless outcome moment where the last nuclear weapon leaves North Korea, the sanctions are lifted, the flag goes up in the embassy and the treaty is signed in the same hour", Biegun said at Stanford University.

In a series of dismaying Twitter rants, the apparently unbalanced USA president responded to these allegations with outright lies and character assassinations.

While Biegun was adamant that the current context presents a unique opportunity to make progress in U.S.

The Senate testimony on Tuesday coincided with the release of the USA intelligence community's latest worldwide threat assessment, which detailed their disagreements with Trump's world views. They're gone. We're defeating them all over the Middle East intelligence community says, yeah, that didn't happen. Analysts noted this statement is a radical comedown from Trump's original demands that North Korea end its nuclear program.

He also said that "a tremendous amount of good things" were happening in the US-led fight against ISIS. So what I'd do is I'd suggest that you call them.

USA intelligence agencies also said Iran continues to work with other parties to the nuclear deal it reached with the US and other world powers.

"They very much want the meeting", Trump said in his Oval Office remarks. And they also said he's been totally wrong about Iran as well, which we all know that John Bolton before he, uh, you know, got his eyes on Venezuela, was hell bent on attacking Iran, but at least now you know, maybe we'll have a war a little bit closer to home.

But one option not being discussed, he said, is the removal of USA troops from the Korean peninsula.
