President-elect Donald Trump seemed to dismiss the White House announcement of sanctions against Russia by saying that Americans should get on with their lives.
On Thursday, the Obama administration announced public and secret measures against Moscow for alleged meddling in November’s presidential election. US intelligence agencies have accused Russia of hacking the Democratic Party’s email servers to help Trump win the presidency.
“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” Mr Trump said in a statement Thursday. “Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”
