Trump: ‘Only Stupid People’ Oppose Better Relations With Russia

Donald Trump, defending himself from critics who accuse him of being too friendly with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, argued Saturday that “only stupid people or fools would think that it is bad” for the president to forge an alliance with the longtime U.S. adversary.

“Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing,” Trump tweeted. “We have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am president, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!”

According to Newsmax, the president-elect also used Twitter to blast the Democratic National Committee for its “gross negligence” in failing to prevent cyber attacks. According to U.S. intelligence agencies, Russian operatives hacked emails from the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta during last year’s race for the White House.

CIA Director John Brennan suggested that Putin ordered the attacks in an attempt to give Trump’s campaign a boost. The incoming president disputed that idea, tweeting: “Intelligence stated very strongly there was absolutely no evidence that hacking affected the election results. Voting machines not touched!”

Newsmax noted that the Twitter storm started the night after Trump met with intelligence officials to discuss the recently concluded federal probe of Russian hacking. “All three agencies agree with this judgment,” the investigation report stated. “CIA and FBI have a high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence.”
