Manchin on Trump Pushing Back Against Intel Community: He Can’t Let His Feelings ‘Overtake’ the Facts

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) weighed in on President Donald Trump lashing out at the intelligence community in regards to Iran.

Trump did so in a series of tweets on Wednesday morning.

Manchin advised Trump “to trust the people around him” and not let his feelings “overtake” the facts.

“The president needs to trust the people around him because they truly have the American interest and they truly have the American people in their hearts, and I know the president does, too,” Manchin outlined. “But he cannot continue to let his feelings overtake, basically, the facts. I’ve said this — we’re all entitled to our opinion. We’re just not entitled to create your own facts to support your opinion. None of us, including the president, me and everybody else in society.”
