Trump On “Russia Mess”: We Should “Get On With Our Lives”

By

President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed talk of sanctioning Russia for interfering in the presidential election, offering what sounded more like a post-breakup pep talk than anything else. “I think we ought to get on with our lives,” he told reporters outside his Mar-A-Lago estate. As for the conclusion of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia almost certainly hacked into political organizations, Trump offered only vague remarks about the “age of computer.” “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,” he said. “We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind of security that we need,” he said. Trump’s comments came a day before U.S. authorities were due to announce what action they will take against Russia over Moscow’s election meddling. Democratic and Republican lawmakers have united to urge authorities to impose sanctions on Moscow over the scandal, though Trump continues to maintain that there’s no proof of Russia’s involvement.
