U.S. President Donald Trump waves as he leaves the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters after delivering remarks during a visit in Langley, Virginia U.S.By Jeff Mason and Warren Strobel LANGLEY, Va./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump sought to mend fences with the CIA on Saturday, telling officers he had their back after he criticized spy agencies for their investigation into Russian hacking. In his first official visit to a government agency as president, Trump - who had said U.S. intelligence tactics were reminiscent of Nazi Germany - sought to leave no doubt with officers that he supported their work. "Very, very few people could do the job you people do and I want you to know I am so behind you," Trump said, to cheers and loud applause.
