In the early transition days Trump refused the President’s Daily Briefing saying “I don’t have to be told — you know, I’m, like, a smart person,” Trump said. “I don’t have to be told the same thing and the same words every single day for the next eight years. It could be eight years — but eight years. I don’t need that.”
Trump denied the nation’s intelligence gathering operations during the campaign and again this past week when he rejected reports that the CIA has determined Russia tried to disrupt and influence the 2016 vote in hopes of a Trump victory.
Now, 20 days before he is sworn in as President of the United States Trump reverts to the 19th century communication mentality. Good for courier services, not so good for the country.
“You know, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way,” Trump told reporters during his annual New Year’s Eve bash. “Because I’ll tell you what: No computer is safe.” He continued,”I know a lot about hacking,” he said, “and hacking is a very hard thing to prove, so it could be somebody else”. Trump continued, I know “things that other people don’t know. And so they cannot be sure of the situation.”
Apparently, Twitter is not included as a possible site that would hacked, how difficult would it be to hack Trumps account, not very I would guess. Trump ditched the press pool to deny open access and play politics at one of his golf course’s . Before the “golf meeting” Saturday, Trump tweeted a New Year’s message to friends and foes: “Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!
What was his courier service delivered New Year’s message to comrade Vladimir ?
