In his first tweet at around 7:35am Sunday, Trump said he had a “great” meeting at CIA headquarters on Saturday, and appearing to seek a restoration of cordial relations, said the CIA had amazing people, not forgetting to note that he got "long standing ovations."
“Had a great meeting at CIA Headquarters yesterday, packed house, paid great respect to Wall, long standing ovations, amazing people. WIN!”
In remarks at CIA HQ on Saturday, Trump blasted the media, accusing news networks of lying about the size of his inauguration crowd, a topic that would later dominate one of the most bizarre White House press briefings. “Honestly it looked like a million and half people, whatever it was it was. But it went all the way back to the Washington Monument ... and by mistake I get this network and it showed an empty field, and it said we drew 250,000 people. Now that's not bad, but it's a lie," Trump said.
