January 11, 2017 – Trump Condemns Russia For Hacking US Presidential Election, Blames Democratic Party For Having Weak Hacking Defense System

After several weeks of denial over the involvement of Russia in the U.S. presidential election, incoming President Donald Trump has finally conceded that the Russians actually carried out the hacking.

Trump, who spoke at his first press conference monitored by the NAN, however denied that he had links with Russia over the hacking to sway the election in his favour.

When asked by a reporter as to what he would say to Russian President Vladimir Putin about the hacking, he responded: “He shouldn’t have done it. I don’t believe he will be doing it more.

“As far as hacking, I think it was Russia. But I think we also get hacked by other countries and other people”, he said.

He promised to protect the U.S. cyber space when he assumes presidency on Jan. 20, berating the Democratic Party for doing a poor job in defending its systems.

“And we’re going to put those minds together, and we’re going to form a defense. And I have to say this also — the Democratic National Committee was totally open to be hacked.

“They did a very poor job. They could have had hacking defense, which we had. And I will give Reince Priebus credit because when Reince saw what was happening in the world and with this country, he went out and went to various firms and ordered a very, very strong hacking defense.

“And they tried to hack the Republican National Committee, and they were unable to break through. We have to do that for our country. It’s very important.”

The President-elect, however, dismissed reports that Russia had his dossiers, saying they would have released it if they had.

“Well, you know, President Putin and Russia put out a statement today that this fake news was indeed fake news. They said it totally never happened.

“Now somebody would say, “oh, of course he’s going to say that” — I respected the fact that he said that. And I will be honest, I think if he did have something they would have released it. They would’ve been glad to release it.”

He also, in a rare case, condemned Putin’s action, saying “hacking is bad” and that he should not be doing it.

“He shouldn’t be doing it. He won’t be doing it. Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I’m leading than when other people have led it. You will see that.

“Russia will respect our country more. He shouldn’t have done it. I don’t believe that he will be doing it more now.”

Trump described Putin’s likeness for him over Democratic Hillary Clinton as an asset.

“Well, if Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability because we have a horrible relationship with Russia.

“Russia can help us fight ISIS, which by the way is number one tricky. I mean, if you look, this administration created ISIS by leaving at the wrong time. The void was created, ISIS was formed.

“If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess what folks? That’s called an asset not a liability. Now I don’t know that I am going to get along with Vladimir Putin,” he said.

    Congratulations to President-elect Trump, in eight days, American we once again have a Christian in the most powerful office in the world-The White House. Once again, American christians can boldly wish others a merry Christmas without any fear of been persecuted by Obama’s anti-Christ doctrines in the last eight years. The little mosque that president Hussein had built in the White House for his brothers in Islam can finally be dismantle as soon as Trump Becomes the new occupants. President Donald John Trump victory is the ultimate Hand of God Almighty and that is another real confirmation that Jehovah still rules the affairs of the Heavens and the earth. He will surely make America great again, and help stop Muslims extreme agendas from overtaken our world. I love good Muslims but despite the Muslims extremists with evil and satanic agendas to kill us-The infidels and islamize the world. They have had their president in the White House in the last eight years-President Barrack Hussein Obama.

    The hacking of US election by Donald Trump foreign ally-the aggressive Russia has shown completely that their was a clear electoral fraud or malpractice in the election that brought Trump to power. If Donald Trump could admit that Russia indeed hacked into US election that favored him over Hillary Clinton,what then made such US election free and fair this time? Why should we then believe God was the one that brought Trump to power? I don’t believe that God can be behind an election that was visibly tainted and marred with foreign interference with the use of sophisticated cyber hacking attack by foreign aggressor-Russia. Being a christian does not guaratee that Trump will perform better than his predecessor. The world knew quite well that everything went wrong with US election this time. But the fact is that Trump is mistaking if he thinks he has gotten Russia as an ally. Russia is no friend of America. Russia will all the more take aggressive posture towards America should Donald Trump failed to support it own foreign policy most especially regarding Syria. Russia maybe useful today in carrying out the worst electoral fraud of American history but tomorrow will be worst for Trump.

      Thank you Endure. I have nothing more to say: let’s keep watching. Another problem American is facing about Donald Trump is, he never wants to relinquish his business empire to become a full time president thereby trying to shuttle between both. Don’t he has an obligation to fully serve people who voted him in?. This is against professional ethics of any would be United States President. Trump wants to eat his cake and have it. One thing is very sure is, this guy will be the most controversial president in the history of US. Let his supporters tell him that running the Country is a whole different from running Exxon/Mobil business.?

    YOU KILLED it@Endure. Nice one. True that Trump is a Christian, but he very much has the tendency to cause clashes and crashes throughout the world, like when a bull runs through a china shop. And if I should go with end time prophetic signs and interpretations, America’s Trump or Trump’s America would be instrumental to the full swing of the New World Order(NWO). It doesn’t matter what religion the president adheres to.
