I think Russia was behind election hack, says Trump

U.S President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday said he thinks Russia is responsible for election-related hacking, but he also pointed to cyberattacks by other countries, including China. 

 

"I think it was Russia, but I think we also get hacked by other people," he told reporters at the Trump Plaza in New York at his first news conference since July. 

Asked if he felt that accepting the intelligence community's conclusion that Russia directed the cyberattacks on Democratic Party institutions would hurt his relationship with Vladimir Putin, he contended that having a good standing with Putin is an asset and not a bad thing. 

 "If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset not a liability. Because we have a horrible relationship with Russia," he said. 

 However, he argued that he would be tougher on Russia than his presidential opponent Hillary Clinton would have been.

He said it would be "very important" to develop a “hacking defense."
