He is the president-elect, so he obviously has access to briefings inaccessible to the rest of the world. But on “Tuesday or Wednesday,” Donald Trump said he will reveal information he learn in these secret briefings to the rest of the world.
Still doubting the United States Intelligence Community on Russia’s hacking into the US election process, Trump spoke to a handful of reporters outside his Palm Beach, Fla., club, Mar-a-Lago, Mr. Trump.
“I just want them to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge,” Mr. Trump said of the intelligence agencies. “If you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong,” he added, referring to intelligence cited by the George W. Bush administration to support its march to war in 2003. “So I want them to be sure,” the president-elect said. “I think it’s unfair if they don’t know.”
He added: “And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”
When asked what he knew that others did not, Mr. Trump demurred, saying only, “You’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
I’m sure Russia will be listening.
This is pure insanity!!! It’s another WTF moment from the donald!
Asked about Russia and the way they hacked the United States election process assuring him the winner, Donald Trump blamed computers. His nonsensical, idiotic claim is because of computers, “nobody knows exactly what is going on.”
“I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly,” the president-elect said Wednesday, speaking to reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
“The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what is going on. And we have speed — we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind the security we need.”
In a radio interview with NPR, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, made it clear that Russia’s involvement in the United States election process will not go without a direct response from the United States.
“I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections, we need to take actions and we will.”
“At a time and a place of our choosing. Some of it my be explicit and publicised, some of it may not be. Mr Putin is well aware of my feelings about this, because I spoke to him directly about it.”
Russia continues to deny any involvement with Donald Trump’s mysterious presidential election win a little over 1 month ago, despite their earlier announcements by high government officials that Russia was in direct contact with the Trump campaign. The CIA maintains that there are strong evidence to prove Russia hacked into the election, and that Putin was personally involved.
