The White House on Monday indicated that former President Donald Trump has not yet requested an intelligence briefing, as the Biden administration's intelligence team decides whether to grant the former Republican president access to such information.

"If at any point the former president requests a briefing, so that is not currently applicable, but if he should request a briefing, [President Joe Biden] leaves it to (his intelligence team) to make a determination," White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters in a briefing on Monday.

Biden stated in a CBS interview on Friday that he did not support Trump having access to intelligence briefings, citing his "erratic behavior" and the concern he might share information.

Former U.S. presidents traditionally receive some intelligence briefings even after they have left office.
