The president-elect gave a rare press conference late Wednesday outside of his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort and ended up making extremely disturbing comments on the pending U.S. sanctions against Russia on account of their interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The Russians carried out a months long series of cyberattacks against the U.S. Democratic Party throughout the months before Election Day.
And in short, with only a month to go until Trump officially becomes the next president of the United States, he is still openly disregarding the seriousness of the Russians’ interference in the election to the point of implying that he may walk back sanctions against Russia imposed by President Obama once he assumes the Oval Office.
As quoted in The Hill, Trump commented to reporters when asked for his latest take on the Russian election meddling as follows:
‘I think we ought to get on with our lives. I think the computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what’s going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind of security that we need.’
Of course, Trump is dead wrong. To suggest that “nobody knows exactly what’s going on” because of “the computers” is utter nonsense. “The computers” didn’t just all of a sudden appear on planet earth; people made them.
Through the knowledge gained by the fact that people are responsible for computers’ existence, U.S. intelligence analysts have long found the concrete evidence that incriminates the Russians in the pre-Election Day hacks that ended up revealing tens of thousands of private Democratic Party emails to the public.
It’s all quite simple, really. Trump, however, as shown with his “nobody knows what exactly is going on” comment, refuses to take any of it seriously.
He’s held to this dangerously sucking up to Putin for months, even being so flagrant at one point before the election to publicly make a show of asking the Russians to continue hacking the Democrats “if” they were, in fact, the ones doing the hacking.
