President Donald Trump got visibly annoyed when reporters asked him about the opinions of the border among his administration's Intelligence Officials.


A reporter asked if he spoke to the officials, which the president said he did.

“I did and they said they were totally taken out of context,” Trump said.

He added that the officials claimed reports were fake news.

The reporter interrupted to say that the officials testified before Congress and were recorded on television saying something contrary.

"Excuse me, excuse me!" an irritated Trump said. He went on to tell the reporter they were there to talk about China.

He said that the assessment by intelligence chiefs about border security doesn't mean anything because "we need a wall."

"But they didn't bring it up as part of the national security assessment," the reporter said.

"Next," Trump said pointing to someone else.

Intelligence officials have said it is impossible for them to get Trump to believe their reports. He prefers a chosen reality.
