Donald Trump Takes on President Obama

Updated on

President-elect Donald Trump said that the U.S. should move on rather than retaliate against Russia for interfering in the 2016 election, with the Obama administration expected to soon take action against Moscow.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that the Russian government orchestrated cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee and other American political groups and then leaked information to interfere in the Nov. 8 elections. Russia has denied the accusations. Trump has said he wants to improve relations with Russia and has praised its president, Vladimir Putin.
