President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly refusing to receive all but one intelligence briefing a week—meaning he’s skipping most of them, Reuters reported on Friday.
It is unclear why the incoming commander in chief, who has never held elected office, is deciding not to take in the Presidents Daily Brief (PDB) bulletins more often. According to an anonymous U.S. official who spoke with Reuters, Trump has requested national security briefings including “routine” PDBs and other specialty bulletins on certain topics.
None include Russia or Iran, the official said.
