Trump Says Russian Meddling Had No Impact on 2016 Election

HeadlineMar 07, 2018
H8 trump russia meddling

All this comes as Trump insisted Tuesday that Russian interference had no impact on the 2016 election. This is Trump, speaking during a news conference with the Swedish prime minister.

President Donald Trump: “Well, the Russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever. But certainly there was meddling, and probably there was meddling from other countries and maybe other individuals. And I think you have to be really watching very closely. You don’t want your system of votes to be compromised in any way. And we won’t allow that to happen. We’re doing a very, very deep study, and we’re coming out with some, I think, very strong suggestions on the '18 election. I think we're going to do very well in the ’18 election.”
