There are three possibilities.

Donald Trump is lying that he was never briefed.

Trump was briefed but did not comprehend or has forgotten about it.

Almost every national security advisor has said, through leaks or after leaving the Administration, that Trump is uninformed, quick-tempered, and a danger to American national security.
