Trump’s Criticism May Mean He’s Finally Admitting The Truth
Telling on someone, but indicting yourself in the process, is a mistake many children make. Just ask any child who told an adult they were goofing off in class in hopes their classmate gets in trouble, when they just openly admitted to it as well. President Trump now knows what that feels like.
On Friday, the Washington Post published a story saying how the Obama administration was given a report stating Russia was interfering in the 2016 Presidential election and how they handled it. Then, they went so far as to say President Vladmir Putin was personally involved in the cyber attack to disrupt the outcome of the U.S. presidential race.
Shortly after, President Donald had something to say about the story.
Trump tweeted out his thoughts on the information given in the article, appearing outraged the Obama administration did nothing to prevent the hacking.
He then followed up the Friday tweeting by tweeting more on Saturday.
By criticizing and calling out Obama’s supposed lack of action, it seemed Trump finally admitted Russia did meddle in the 2016 election.
For months before, and after, his inauguration, Trump referred to any act of Russian interference as ‘fake news.’ The closest he’s gotten to admitting what intelligence officials have been saying for months has been “other countries and other people” may have hacked the U.S.
The problem is Trump now admitting the election that put him in the White House may not have been a true win. Even Sean Spicer said Friday that the President stands by his statements that Russia “probably” hacked the DNC.
