Biden said in an interview on “CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell” that he does not believe Trump should still receive intelligence briefings “because of his erratic behavior unrelated to the insurrection,” referencing the Jan. 6 riot by Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol.
Biden reiterated his belief that Trump represents an “existential threat” and “dangerous.” Asked about his worst fear if Trump continues to receive intelligence briefings, Biden declined to speculate but suggested he sees no value in Trump continuing to receive intelligence.
“I’d rather not speculate out loud. 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?” Biden said.
