Trump Responds To Obama’s Russian Sanctions

President-elect Donald Trump offered a short response to President Barack Obama’s retaliatory measures against Russia.

“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” Trump said in a two-sentence statement released just after 6 p.m. EST. “Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”

Trump’s insistence that “it’s time to move on” may rankle some in the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, many of whom contend that Russia deliberately attempted to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Obama announced a series of measures, which include the removal of 35 Russian operatives currently residing in the U.S. The individuals have 72 hours to leave the country. (RELATED: President Obama Signs Exec. Order Raising Sanctions Against Russian For Hacks)
