Donald Trump has broken his silence over the huge suspected Russian cyber attack claiming that China could be behind the attack, despite Secretary of State Mike Pompeo publicly blaming Russia the day before.
The president tweeted Saturday just before noon to downplay the hack which has compromised broad swathes of the federal government and private sector.
He claimed the cyber attack ‘is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality’ and insisted that ‘everything is well under control’.
Trump also once again pushed unfounded claims of widespread fraud in the presidential election, saying that voting machines could have been hacked.

‘The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality. I have been fully briefed and everything is well under control,’ he tweeted.
He continued in a follow-up tweet: ‘There could also have been a hit on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now obvious that I won big, making it an even more corrupted embarrassment for the USA. @DNI_Ratcliffe @SecPompeo’
