The coming 45th President of the United States of America Donald Trump could be the first to end up in a major conflict with his own country’s intelligence services. On Wednesday he did concede that Russia is the country which performed hacks of the Democrat party’s computer systems. He did not, however, admit that Vladimir Putin was aiming to influence election results in his favour. D. Trump also categorically denied reports from CNN and the Buzz Feed that V. Putin could have compromising information regarding Trump.
