Donald Trump will receive a classified intelligence briefing on Wednesday in New York, a federal official confirms.

Trump's briefing session comes just days after he unveiled a series of foreign policy proposals that included "extreme vetting" of immigrants and only allowing those who "share our values and respect our people" into the United States.
