Trump is ‘perfectly reasonable’: Former CIA director

A senior intelligence expert who headed up the CIA during the Clinton administration recommends people relax their opinions of President-elect Donald Trump.

“I think a lot of people’s concerns about some of the things he’s said, probably they have to relax and give him a chance to get going here in this new and very big job,” says James Woolsey, who was CIA director in the early 1990s and served as Under Secretary of the Navy for the Jimmy Carter administration.

He knows what he’s talking about too. Woolsey served as an adviser on nuclear and strategic issues for the Republican candidate’s campaign. He got to know Trump’s personality and style through recent one-on-one meetings and telephone conversations.
