Contrary To His Own Director Of National Intelligence, Trump Claims Russia Is No Longer Targeting America

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump, who has been under fire for not aggressively confronting Russian President Vladimir Putin over election interference, said Russia is no longer targeting the United States. “Thank you very much, no,” Trump said in response to a question about whether Russia is still targeting the United States.

Last week, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats said that Russia and other countries are continuing to target American businesses, the government and other institutions and that “the warning lights are blinking red.”
