Former CIA Director John Brennan attacked Donald Trump hours after the president said he would listen if a foreign government reached out to provide him with dirt on a political opponent. 

This is just the latest example of what Vice President Biden meant when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country,” Brennan said in a tweet.

“‘Unfit to be President’ is a gross understatement. @realDonaldTrump is undeserving of any public office, and all Americans should be outraged,” he continued.

Brennan’s remarks came in response to Trump's comments in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

When Trump was pressed on whether he would notify the FBI or listen if China, Russian or another foreign government tried to give him damaging information on a political opponent, he replied, "I think maybe you do both."

"I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening," the president continued.

"If somebody called from a country — Norway — 'We have information on your opponent,'" Trump said hypothetically, "Oh, I think I’d want to hear it."

"You want that kind of interference in our elections?" Stephanopoulos asked.

“It’s not an interference. It’s information. I think I’d take it,” he said, adding that if he thought there was “something wrong” then he would “maybe” alert the FBI.

Stephanopoulos also pointed out in the interview that FBI Director Christopher Wray had previously said campaign officials should alert the FBI in the event a foreign body contacts them.

"The FBI director is wrong," Trump said in response.

In March, Trump criticized Brennan for concluding that his campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election without any substantial evidence.

“I believe Brennan is a sick person. I really do. I think there is something wrong with him, for him to come out of the CIA and act that way was so disrespectful to the country and to the CIA and to the position he held,” Trump told Sean Hannity on Wednesday.

Brennan was a crucial voice in pushing the Russian conspiracy narrative after Trump won the election, even contributing to left-leaning MSNBC which elevated the theory even more.
