Donald Trump doubts on a US intelligence finding that Russia meddled in the US election through computer hacking, a conclusion that led to US sanctions against Moscow. Trump declared that he wants them to be sure due to the seriousness of the charge. Donald Trump made this comment at his estate in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. He made observations on US intelligence, which said that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction many years ago. This was the pretext for the US-led invasion in 2003. Trump declared that this was a disaster and that they were wrong. He also that it was unfair to accuse Russia of hacking if there was any doubt.

When asked how important cybersecurity would be to his administration, he declared: It is very important. If you have something really important, write it and have it delivered by courier, the old fashioned way because I will tell you that no computer is safe. Donald Trump does not trust computers at all.
