President Donald Trump spoke at CIA Headquarters on his first stop as the newly inaugurated commander in chief telling the intelligence agency that despite media reports he is not at war with the intelligence community.
The Democratic Naitonal Committee issued a statement shortly after Trump's visit ripping the new president.
Standing in front of a wall full of stars, possibly the CIA Memorial Wall, representing CIA employees who have died, Trump also told CIA employees that he had been on the cover of Time magazine more than anyone in history; Time magazine disputed that Saturday afternoon, saying President Richard Nixon holds that record.
On the second day of Trump's presidency, a rally to protest some of his policies is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people to the National Mall.
In one inflammatory tweet, Mr. Trump blasted the intelligence community's handling of a report examining unverified and possibly compromising information Russian Federation had gathered on the then-president-elect.
In his news conference on January 11, Trump accused the intelligence community of leaking the information.
Many of Trump's lines were met by applause, though the CIA's senior leadership did not applaud at any of the politically tinged remarks.
President Trump disputed a TV network's report Saturday that he said underestimated the size of the crowd at his inauguration.

The CIA is locked in a battle with Trump over allegations that the Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind an effort to sway the election in Trump's favor. "And you're going to get so much backing", he said.
Radical Islamic terrorism has to be eradicated off the face of the earth. "Mr. President, please don't give us so much backing".
Pillorying the press for "making it sound like" he had been feuding with the intelligence agencies, Mr. Trump said it was "exactly the opposite".
"When I was young and I feel young, I feel like I'm 30, 35, 39, somebody said, 'Are you young?" "I am so behind you, and I know maybe sometimes you haven't gotten the backing that you've wanted".
Trump also asserted his oft-stated belief that the United States bungled its exit from the country by not taking Iraq's oil.
Trump's Central Intelligence Agency visit comes after congressional Democrats succeeded in stalling until Monday Senate consideration of Trump's choice for Central Intelligence Agency director, Representative Mike Pompeo.
"Probably nearly everybody in this room voted for me but I will not ask you to raise your hands if you did but I guarantee a big portion because we're all on the same wavelength", Trump said.
