The president commented on the issue as he left the White House to travel to Bedminster, New Jersey.
"Security clearances are very important to me, very, very important. and I've had a tremendous response for having done that", Trump said Friday. "If Director Brennan's statement is based on intelligence he received while still leading the CIA, why didn't he include it in the Intelligence Community Assessment released in 2017?"
"We have never before seen the approval or removal of security clearances used as a political tool as was done in this case".
McRaven is also famous for his "Make Your Bed" Commencement Address at University of Texas at Austin in 2014.
Trump's admission that he acted out of frustration about the Russian Federation probe underscored his willingness to use his executive power to fight back against an investigation he sees as a threat to his presidency.
McRaven called Brennan "one of the finest public servants I have ever known" and called on Trump to lift his own top secret clearance to show solidarity with Brennan.
Less than 24 hours after Sanders' statement, Trump told a reporter that Brennan was sacked over ties to Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling.
"I call it the rigged witch hunt", Trump told the Wall Street Journal.

He continued: "I think he's abusing the powers of that office".
"I don't trust many of those people on that list", he said.
The statement also claimed that Brennan had been "leveraging" his clearance to make "wild outbursts" and claims against the Trump administration in the media.
She only cited what she called Brennan's "erratic conduct and behavior" that "has tested and far exceeded the limits of any professional courtesy that may have been due to him".
"If anything, I'm giving him a bigger voice", the president said.
"But let him write his report".
The Republican chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee is challenging former CIA Director John Brennan's claim that President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation. He said the only question now is whether the collusion that took place "constituted criminally liable conspiracy". "Many people don't even know who he is".
The piece, posted on the New York Times website, came a day after Trump announced he was stripping the security clearance of Brennan, who led the Central Intelligence Agency during most of President Barack Obama's second term and has emerged as one of Trump's fiercest critics.
As Hill Reporter covered yesterday, legal analysts say that a president getting involved in the process of revoking security clearances, especially without going through the usual channels, is utterly unprecedented, and could result in legal battles to determine whether Trump actually has that power.
