Trump showed he is staying in Putin’s back pocket by falsely blaming China for the US’s Russian hack.
…. Discuss the possibility that it could be (it can be!) China. There could also have been a blow to our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is evident now that I won big, making it an even more corrupt embarrassment for the US. @DNI_Ratcliffe @SecPompeo

Do you remember the good old days about six weeks ago, when Trump ranted for months about mail-in votes tampering with the election?
It turns out that, according to Trump, the threat wasn’t mail-in-voting, but voting machines.
The Chinese didn’t hack critical US systems and stayed there for months. The Russians did it, and the Chinese didn’t hack the voting machines. Audit after audit has shown that the voting machines are working properly.
Trump’s tweets are an example of his illusion that his thinking has grown. Trump refuses to admit he lost the election. He has taken up fringe conspiracy theories and even considered not leaving the White House on January 20, 2021.
Donald Trump proves Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is right. He and his administration are completely compromised. Trump makes excuses for Putin when Russia is embroiled in virtual warfare against the United States.
