Maybe I am just confused, but for some reason I thought the leader of a country has one main responsibility–to protect it’s people from danger and war. That is why I am having such a difficult time understanding why President-elect Donald Trump would say this about the proven Russian hacking of American democracy during the 2016 U.S. presidential election:
‘It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things…’
Move on to bigger and better things? What could be bigger than one of the most powerful and dangerous enemies of U.S. democracy trying to end our freedom and democratic system by hacking into it in order to get the result that suits its leader, Vladimir Putin, in the best possible way?
In today’s world, this is the equivalent of an act of war by one country against another. And our new president thinks we should ‘just move on?’
