Trump spends the morning worrying about area forces reasonably than responding to Russian cyberattacks
After Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admitted on Friday that Russia likely carried out a massive cyber attack against the United States, Donald Trump spent the morning obsessed with the Space Force.
In a tweet, Trump boasted that Space Force would be seen as one of the “great achievements” of his presidency in the future.
“One of the great achievements of the Trump administration in the future will be the approval and commissioning of the SPACE FORCE,” said the outgoing President. “Congratulations to everyone!”

Trump’s congratulatory tweet comes after it was revealed that members of the Space Force were being referred to as “Guardians.”
Meanwhile, Trump is ignoring a “severe and sustained” cyber attack from Russia
While Donald Trump spends his time bragging about the Space Force – a military branch that sounds like the masterful idea of a third-class citizen – he ignores what the Washington Post calls a “serious and ongoing” cyberattack from Russia.
As the Post reports, despite Pompeo’s admission that Russia was behind the violation, “President Trump, who has long been skeptical that Russia intervened in the 2016 election, has not addressed the issue publicly”.
“The encroachments on federal agencies were first exposed last weekend, and every day it was found that more agencies were injured,” the report added. “In addition to the Foreign Ministry, the ministries of finance, homeland security, energy and trade as well as the National Institutes of Health have also been on the list so far.”
In 32 days America will finally have a president who will not let Vladimir Putin play him like a violin, regardless of whether he denies Russian interference in the 2016 elections or keeps silent when hackers attack critical government agencies.
Until then, the United States will be vulnerable to such attacks from abroad because Donald Trump is too weak and afraid to assert himself against the country that put him in office.
