Donald Trump, who has yet to criticize Russia for meddling in the 2016 Presidential election, claimed that the Russian government was "laughing their asses off" over the seeming discord over how to hold them accountable over their attack on the American electoral system. Trump responded to the indictment of over a dozen Russian nationals for their role in a massive disinformation campaign leading up to the 2016 election by making suggesting it vindicated him personally instead of promising that he will do everything he can to hold the Russian government accountable.
