Biden said, “The truth is this. The Trump administration failed to prioritize cybersecurity. It did that from eliminating or downgrading cyber coordinators in both the white house and at the state department, to firing the director of cyberspace and infrastructure security agency. To president trump’s irrational downplaying of the seriousness of this attack.”

Biden said that if Trump won’t take the attack seriously, he will, “This assault happened on Donald Trump’s watch when he wasn’t watching. He still has a responsibility as president to defend American interests for the next four weeks. Rest assured, even if he does not take it seriously, I will.”

Joe Biden just said what everyone has been thinking for four years. Donald Trump is a failure, and Biden was elected to clean up the mess that Trump made and get the country back on Trump. Donald Trump and John Bolton weakened cybersecurity for Putin and now it will be up to Biden to make the Russians pay.
