President Trump thinks computers aren’t safe, promises hacking revelations

President Trump Russia Hacking

We’re in for a big hacking-related reveal this week when President-elect Donald Trump will tell us things that people don’t know about the recent cyber attacks against the US. In a press conference at this Mar-a-Lago club in Florida during this New Year’s Eve party, Trump talked about Russia, hackers, and admitted that computers are very dangerous in this day and age.<!—more–>

“It’s very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way, because I’ll tell you what, no computer is safe,” Trump said, according to The New York Times.

“I don’t care what they say, no computer is safe,” Trump said. “I have a boy who’s 10 years old; he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier.”

Trump has been a fierce opponent of the idea that Russia hacked the Democrats ahead of the presidential election, or that Russia tried to influence the outcome. That’s even though US intelligence agencies might sit on irrefutable evidence that proves beyond any doubt that Russian spies breached Democratic servers.

“I just want them to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge,” Trump said of the intelligence agencies. “If you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong. So I want them to be sure. I think it’s unfair if they don’t know.”

Trump said he knows “a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”

The president-elect teased that come Tuesday or Wednesday, he will reveal those things that people don’t know.
