Pres. Trump — I Hold Putin Responsible For 2016 Election Meddling As He Was Leader

Whatever Pres. Trump’s advisors said to him about the intelligence community; it’s must have gotten good because tonight’s statement is a new direction.

Pres. Trump is holding Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, responsible for the 2016 election meddling which details hacking the DNC servers and Hillary Clinton’s emails. This is a big change from earlier positions.

This is who the media wants Trump to be, and he’s moving forward. Remember, the FBI has not inspected the DNC servers to this date, two years later, and Hillary Clinton still contends Wikileaks had a partnership with Russia to hack her servers.

At this point, I throw my hands up and pray for the man behind the Oval Office desk.

“Very strong on the fact that we can’t have meddling, we can’t have any of that,” Trump answered when asked by CBS News on Tuesday what he told Putin in Helsinki regarding reports about Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“I let him know we can’t have this, we’re not going to have it, and that’s the way it’s going to be,” he continued.

Trump further stated that assessments from his own U.S. intelligence officials on Russian efforts to undermine the U.S. political process were “true,” adding he holds Putin responsible for the operations.

“Well, I would because he’s in charge of the country, just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country,” he said. “So certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes.”

What do you think of these statements by Trump over the past couple of days? He’s concluding his intelligence community is right about Russia meddling in the 2016 election, and now he is clearly saying it’s Putin’s fault that it happen because he was the leader. What about Barack Obama?
