Trump Still Won’t Admit Russia Carried Out Election Hack In Latest Twitter Tantrum

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 09:46 pm

Donald Trump is at it again on Twitter, and he still won’t admit that Russia is behind the recent cyberattack meant to influence the results of the presidential election.

In a series of tweets, Trump threw a tantrum that people keep saying the Russians are responsible for the hacking, asking, “how and why are [U.S. officials] so sure” that Russia was involved.

Trump blamed everything – the media, politics, the Democratic National Committee – except Russia, even though the U.S. intelligence community says was responsible for an unprecedented hack of the American electoral process.


The Twitter tantrum follows a post yesterday in which Trump questioned the U.S. government’s finding that Russia was able to pass along hacked DNC emails to WikiLeaks. In the tweet, the president-elect said, “Russians did not give [WikiLeaks Chief Julian Assange] the info!”

While Trump tries to defend Russia and Assange, a report released by CNN says, “US intelligence has identified the go-betweens the Russians used to provide stolen emails to WikiLeaks, according to US officials familiar with the classified intelligence review that was presented to President Barack Obama on Thursday.”

As more information comes out, Trump is becoming increasingly alone in his politically suicidal mission to defend Russia instead of the U.S. – you know, the country he will lead two weeks from now.

It’s hard enough for the thin-skinned president-elect that 3 million more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton over him. The fact that Russia was certainly involved in influencing the outcome of the election in his favor only makes his victory less legitimate – certainly not a mandate or a landslide.

Trump knows this, which is why he continues to lash out via social media.
