Trump says the ‘age of computer’ has made the world worse
Russia doesn’t cyber-attack, computers do.
President-elect Donald Trump pivoted away from a question about sanctioning Russia on Wednesday, saying, “We ought to get on with our lives,” and answered instead with a list of reasons why computers are the real culprit.
It only took the Trump 20 seconds to outline what he believes to be three considerable drawbacks of the computer age.
“I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly,” Trump said at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. “The whole age of computer has made it so nobody knows exactly what’s going on. We have speed. We have a lot of other things. But I’m not sure you have the kind of security that you need.”
Here is the short video tweeted out by Eric Geller, reporter at Politico and a former Daily Dot editor.
The question given to Trump was in response to U.S. intelligence agencies concluding that Russia attempted to influence the outcome of the U.S. presidential election with strategic cyberattacks, including a breach of the Democratic National Committee.
“There will be bipartisan sanctions coming that will hit Russia hard, particularly Putin as an individual,” said Graham, who is currently visiting the Baltic states alongside Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), in an effort to reassure allies of the U.S. government’s commitment to NATO.
Trump has made it clear he is not in favor of the sanctions. Then again, why should he be, if it’s computers that are really at fault?
