How will Trump use US Intelligence operations?

How will President-elect Donald Trump use the US Intelligence agencies once he is President?

On one hand Trump lambasts US Intelligence agencies. On the other hand he can’t wait to get hold of the power of the US Intelligence agencies.

Russian delivery of false news through social media in order to promote Trump during US Presidential race is dismissed by Trump. Regarding the hacking of the Democrat emails, he said it was ultimately irrelevant, describing the data penetration and leak as having “absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election”.

For something which had “absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election” Trump certainly mentioned missing emails every chance he had and even asked Russia to find more of Hilary Clinton’s missing emails.

What’s with Trump and Russia anyway? Does Trump have Putin envy?

But I digress. On the campaign trail, Trump made an ambiguous remark about wishing he had access to surveillance powers.

“I wish I had that power,” he said while talking about the hack of Democratic National Committee emails. “Man, that would be power.”

Man, that would be power??? I wish I had that power??? This from a person running for the most powerful political position in the world? What does that say about the man? It tells me he is immature and an egotist.

I doubt any person with an IQ above gravel would vocalize such thoughts while running for Presidency of the United States. Think them? Okay. Speak them during an election? Dumber than gravel.
