Trump Backtracks On Idea Of Forming A ‘Cyber Security Unit’ With Putin

After tweeting on Sunday morning about “forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit” with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Trump on Sunday night declared that just because he “discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn’t mean I think it can happen.” Following his morning tweet, Trump was mocked by Democrats and Republicans alike, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who said on Meet the Press it was “not the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard — but it’s pretty close,” and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who told CNN’s State of the Union he thought the U.S. “might as well mail our ballot boxes to Moscow.” After dealing with jokes at his expense all day, Trump broached the topic again on Sunday night, this time backtracking from what he said 13 hours earlier. “The fact that President Putin and I discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn’t mean I think it can happen,” he tweeted. “It can’t — but a ceasefire can, & did!”
