I remember when I was a kid, I watched this documentary about the lives of people that were once President but we no longer in office for whatever reason. It was an interesting look into the lives of people that were at one time the most powerful people in the entire world.
They still get certain luxuries afforded to them, probably due to the fact that there are still so many security issues involved in being a former leader. Added to that, they deserve it…that is a hard job, no matter who the heck is in the chair.
That being said, Joe Biden is getting ready to strip Trump of a lot of the luxuries that should be afforded to him after he leaves office. This is going to be really funny when Joe gets beaten by Trump when President Trump runs again in four years.
Every other former president currently living has access to intelligence briefings if they request them. President Joe Biden, however, wonders “what value” there would be in giving them to former President Donald Trump.
According to Deadline, Biden said Trump shouldn’t receive the briefings due to “erratic behavior unrelated to the insurrection” at the Capitol in an interview with “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell that was set to air in three separate parts between Friday and Sunday.
“You’ve called him an existential threat. You’ve called him dangerous. You’ve called him reckless,” O”Donnell said.
“Yeah, I have. And I believe it,” Biden responded.
She then asked what was Biden’s “worst fear if [Trump] continues to get these intelligence briefings.”
“I’d rather not speculate out loud,” Biden said.
“I just think that there is no need for him to have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him an intelligence briefing? What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?”
The first sign that the Biden administration might deny Trump’s ability to receive intelligence came when White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked by CNN on Thursday, when she noted the intelligence community would receive and review requests for intelligence briefings coming in from Trump without giving an answer either way.
