My dear friend "Intruder", the way I see it, it's not that Natives do not pronounce the "t". The fact is that it can come out so subtle that it might even slip one sharp ear. Just a couple of minutes ago an American said the following sentence to me:

 

"Deivis, you'll not defeat me".

 

I had to ask him to repeat that as I didn't get the "t" at first.

 
Don't fret over it, just keep on training your listening and eventually you will get used to it.
