President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to take aim at John Kerry, endorse a cabinet nominee, and announce an global phone call.

"Looking forward to Wednesday", a smiling Haspel told reporters as she breezed into the office of Sen.

Then the president switched gears to announce that he would call President Xi of China to discuss trade and denuclearization in the Korean peninsula.

President Donald Trump tweeted strong support, saying she was "tough on terror". "It's awesome to watch the media disparage and attack women of real substance while they laud a woman who spends most of her time hanging off a pole half or completely naked".

"At the same time she wants to do everything she can to protect the safety and security of Americans, which is why she is 100% committed to going through this confirmation process and being confirmed as the next leader of the Central Intelligence Agency". Were the Senate to reject her, the nominee's former colleague said, "it would send a really chilling, devastating message". "That is demoralizing. That is politicizing what they do", said Burlingame, whose brother Charles "Chic" Burlingame was the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon.

Trump has labeled both Clapper and Brennan, former Obama administration officials, as liars and leakers.

The CIA responded by saying it had sent more classified documents to the Senate covering her "actual and outstanding record", beginning with her work for the agency's Counter-Terrorism Center after the September 11, 2001, attacks. Senators had demanded greater transparency from the CIA over her history and on Monday the agency delivered a cardboard box full of classified documents.

Haspel is facing opposition from some Democrats and many rights groups who are critical of her activities related to the shredding of 92 interrogation videotapes in 2005 and her stint as chief of base at a covert detention site in Thailand where two detainees were waterboarded, which simulates drowning. "She has earned great respect from intelligence leaders around the world; even people like [Russian President Vladimir] Putin would have to respect her operational savvy".

It wasn't until Saturday afternoon that officials were sure she'd stick with her nomination, the Post reported. She was scheduled to conduct multiple meetings with lawmakers who could decide her fate, a White House aide said.

For her efforts during the operation, which ultimately disrupted a terrorist cell, Haspel in 1999 received the George H.W. Bush Award for Excellence in Counterterrorism. Trump was reportedly told about Haspel on Friday, and he made a decision to push her to stay as the nominee.
