President-elect Donald Trump is responding to the Obama administration’s decision to impose new sanctions on Russian officials and intelligence services by insisting it is “time for our country to move on to bigger and better things.”
But he says he’ll meet with U.S. intelligence officials next week “in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”
The Obama administration announced Thursday it would impose new sanctions in retaliation for Russia’s efforts to interfere with the U.S. presidential election by hacking American political sites and email accounts.
Russian officials have denied the Obama administration’s accusations. Trump has expressed skepticism about the alleged interference.
