    1. WALLACE:  I just want to ask you about your skepticism about the intelligence community.  You are getting the presidential daily brief --   TRUMP:  Yes. WALLACE:  -- only once a week.   TRUMP:  Well, I get it when I need it.   WALLACE:  But is there some skepticism?   TRUMP:  First of all, these are very good people that are giving me the briefings.  If something should change from this point, immediately call me.  I’m available on one minute's notice.   I don't have to be told -- you know, I’m like a smart person.  I don't have to be told the same thing and the same words every single day for the next eight years.  It could be eight years -- but eight years.  I don't need that.   But I do say if something should change, let us know.  Now, in the meantime, my generals are great, are being briefed.  Mike Pence is being briefed, who is, by the way, one of my very good decisions.  He's terrific.  And they're being briefed.  And I’m being briefed also.   But if they're going to come in and tell me the exact same thing that they told me, you know, that doesn't change necessarily.  There might be times where it might change.  I mean, there will be some very fluid situations.  I'll be there not every day but more than that.   But I don't need to be told, Chris, the same thing every day, every morning, same words.  Sir, nothing has changed.  Let's go over it again.  I don't need that.
