Trump Lashes Out At Media For Reporting Russia Hacking Attack, Says ‘It May Be China’

President Donald Trump, who until now had remained silent in the face of the Russian hacking attack, has finally spoken out. But he’s not blaming Moscow for cyberattacks. Instead, he’s attacking the media for reporting the worst-ever hack of U.S. government agencies and suggesting that China may be the actual perpetrator.

“The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality. I have been fully briefed and everything is well under control,” Trump tweeted. “Russia, Russia, Russia is the priority chant when anything happens because Lamestream is, for mostly financial reasons, petrified of discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!),” he added in a second tweet.

“There could also have been a hit on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now obvious that I won big, making it an even more corrupted embarrassment for the USA.

Trump’s response, or lack thereof, is being closely watched because of his obsession with a fruitless effort to overturn the results of last month’s election and because of his reluctance to consistently acknowledge that Russian hackers interfered in the 2016 presidential election in his favor.
