Trump has Thursday the allegations regarding the Russian hacking attempts during the American elections in 2016 again weakened. He said that “no one is sure what happened”.

“I think Russia learned to sit, but people in other countries to manipulate also. I don’t want to name names, but I think there are a lot of people who are in business mix,” said Trump.

Earlier on Thursday criticized Trump Russia as a “destabilising factor” in regards to Poland. Trump promised Poland aid in the event that Russia threatens. A spokesman of the Kremlin regretted that and said that there is little mutual understanding between Moscow and Washington.
