North Korea is "unlikely to give up" its nuclear stockpiles and Iran is not trying to develop nuclear weapons, a new intelligence assessment says, directly challenging the president's assertions.

WASHINGTON - Directly contradicting President Donald Trump, U.S. intelligence agencies told Congress on Tuesday that North Korea is unlikely to dismantle its nuclear arsenal, that the Islamic State group remains a threat and that the Iran nuclear deal is working. The chiefs made no mention of a crisis at the U.S.-Mexican border for which Trump has considered declaring a national emergency.

Their analysis stands in sharp contrast to Trump's almost singular focus on security gaps at the border as the biggest threat facing the United States.
