Trump Should Not Receive Intelligence Briefings – Joe Biden

President Biden said on Friday that the former president, Donald Trump should not receive intelligence briefings. He said authorities usually give ex-presidents this classified information in form of briefings. He cited Trump’s ‘’erratic behavior’’ and the risk that Trump might recklessly reveal sensitive information.

Biden stopped short of announcing that he had officially decided to prevent his predecessor from receiving briefings. These are traditionally given to former presidents before they travel abroad, particularly in an official capacity.

However, Biden has the unilateral authority to deny intelligence briefings to anyone he chooses. And, his remarks amounted to a statement that Trump – who for years controlled the entire U.S. security apparatus – became a security risk himself.

It would be an unprecedented action denying a former president the briefings. However, Biden’s remarks emphasized the president’s concern and that of other officials. Trump poses a risk to national security because of what he might disclose.

After his remarks on Friday, the White House did not immediately clear whether they represented an official White House policy. This left some people to think of it as a mere expression of the president’s opinion. Even when asked by CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell whether Trump should receive the briefings, Biden replied, ‘’I think not.’’

A spokesperson for Trump did not respond to requests for comment.
