Some intelligence officials reportedly say that President Trump has displayed “willful ignorance” when presented with analysis from the intelligence community, according to Time Magazine.

The magazine reported Saturday, according to anonymous senior aides, that Trump allegedly has difficulty paying attention during briefings and that intelligence officials often work to keep Trump’s attention by using visual aids, allegedly keeping points to two or three sentences and frequently repeating Trump’s name and title.

The report details multiple instances in which Trump appeared to lack understanding on certain subjects.

In one briefing on South Asia, Trump allegedly claimed that Nepal and Bhutan were parts of India, Time reported, citing interviews with intelligence officers and congressional officials. Trump’s advisers then reportedly informed him that Nepal is an independent nation and Bhutan is an independent kingdom.

The report comes after Trump clashed last week with intelligence leaders over their assessment of Iran’s nuclear developments.

He said in a tweet that his intelligence leaders, who testified in front of the Senate that Iran is not seeking to develop its nuclear weapons capabilities, were “wrong” in their assessments.

“The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran. They are wrong!” Trump tweeted, adding in a subsequent tweet that the intelligence chiefs “should go back to school.”

Trump then blamed the media for the rift between him and the intelligence community, claiming that the press mischaracterized the Senate testimony.
