A new book claims that top CIA employees have compared President Trump favorably to his predecessor, indicating that former President Barack Obama’s administration micromanaged intelligence matters and was too concerned with political correctness.

The revelation comes in commentator Doug Wead’s new book  “Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency,” which is set for release on Nov. 26. Wead cites an unnamed White House source who claims CIA officials leveled complaints against the Obama administration during a meeting with then-CIA director Mike Pompeo.

The article goes on to state the following:

“They met with the agency’s top five staff members. Someone from the White House asked about the major differences between the Trump administration and that of its predecessor,” Wead wrote. “Was there something the Trump folks could be doing better? One answer given was that in the last administration, everything was being run from the White House.”

Wead’s source said Trump gave more freedom to agencies.
