Top security and intelligence officials denied the reports that Trump is unfavorable towards receiving intelligence about Russia.
Business Insider has approached the White House for comment.
Early in his presidency, officials learned to limit their verbal briefings on the topic and would often see their written materials ignored, according to multiple former White House officials cited in the report from CNN's Jim Scuitto.
"The President has created an environment that dissuades, if not prohibits, the mentioning of any intelligence that isn't favorable to Russia," one former senior national security staffer told CNN.
Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence, told CNN in a statement that this was "totally false."
