  • President Donald Trump gestures at a rally at the Phoenix convention centre

Former director of national intelligence James Clapper cast doubt on President Donald Trump's fitness for office shortly after the president hosted a deeply divisive campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, Tuesday evening.

"Having some understanding of the levers that a president can exercise، I worry about، frankly، the access to the nuclear codes،" Clapper said.

In a series of tweets on Thursday morning, Trump also lashed out at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., on the debt ceiling and the failure of the health care bill.

"I think you compare the two, that Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we're confronting now".

"Humans of New York" is turning into a TV show
The blog has also expanded into two New York Times best-selling books and a multiplatform social media presence. Facebook has ordered a twelve-part original docuseries based on the popular " Humans of New York " blog.

Clapper، who worked in intelligence under every U.S. leader from John F. Kennedy to Barack Obama، said his professional instincts had always been loyalty to the president، regardless of which party they come from.

Clapper responded to the question, falsely: "No, sir".

During his CNN interview, Trump singled out a tweet Trump posted in January blasting the intelligence community for using Nazi-like tactics as even more troubling in light of recent developments.

Clapper later apologized for his "clearly erroneous" testimony but insisted that he did not lie during the hearing. "And I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it".

Outlining the overall picture in today's market for: Ulta Beauty, Inc. (ULTA)
Scopus Asset Management Lp decreased Tjx Cos Inc New (NYSE:TJX) stake by 687,708 shares to 812,292 valued at $61.03M in 2016Q4. ULTA grew its physical footprint to include hundreds of stores, and the stock drew plenty of bullish commentary from analysts.

"They have said this for a long time privately", Wallace said of reported whispers behind closed doors questioning Trump's stability.

Pyongyang also threatened to launch ballistic missiles toward Guam.

Clapper has since publicly said that the scandal that brought down President Nixon pales in comparison to the one involving Trump's connections with Russian Federation.

He again charged that the media did not give him fair coverage of his various speeches and comments in the aftermath of the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. If this is the case, it is not a matter if Trump is removed from office, but when and by whom.
