Following the indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three entities over the alleged attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election campaign in the United States in favor of Donald Trump, the incumbent president has consistently tried to distance himself from allegations of collusion with Moscow.
Donald Trump made a statement on Twitter on Sunday, saying that he had never rejected the possibility of Russia meddling in the election process in America, adding the vote could also be hacked by China or any other hacker acting alone and one more time denying his campaign’s alleged links to Moscow.
In a separate tweet, the US president has commented on the ongoing investigations into the 2016 election interference, saying that the Russians “have succeeded beyond their wildest dream” if they tried to create “discord, disruption, and chaos” in the US.
