Trump Folds On Russia Cybersecurity Cooperation

<p>Just fourteen hours after crowing proudly of his success during discussions with Russian President Putin in forming an 'impenetrable cyber security unit'...</p>
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">Putin &amp; I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, &amp; many other negative things, will be guarded..</p>
<p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/884016887692234753">July 9, 2017</a></p></blockquote>
<script src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script><p>And after <a href="&lt;blockquote class=&quot;twitter-tweet&quot; data-lang=&quot;en&quot;&gt;&lt;p lang=&quot;en&quot; dir=&quot;ltr&quot;&gt;Putin &amp;amp; I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, &amp;amp; many other negative things, will be guarded..&lt;/p&gt;&amp;mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) &lt;a href=&quot;https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/884016887692234753&quot;&gt;July 9, 2017&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=&quot;//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js&quot; charset=&quot;utf-8&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;">various Democrats and Republicans blasted him for &quot;the dumbest idea ever&quot;</a>...</p>
<p>Rubio, on Twitter, said:</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>&quot;While reality &amp; pragmatism requires that we engage Vladimir <strong>Putin, he will never be a trusted ally or a reliable constructive partner.</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&quot;Partnering with Putin on a 'Cyber Security Unit' is akin to partnering with (Syrian President Bashar al) Assad on a 'Chemical Weapons Unit'.&quot;</strong></p>
</blockquote>
<p>But it was <strong>Graham that really let loose</strong> on NBC News' 'Meet the Press'... (<a href="http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/341174-graham-unloads-on-trump-blind-spot-on-russia-undermining-his-entire">via The Hill</a>)</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>&ldquo;When it comes to Russia I am dumbfounded, I am disappointed, and at the end of the day<strong> he&rsquo;s hurting his presidency by not embracing the fact that Putin is a bad guy,&rdquo; </strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&ldquo;He is literally the only person I know of who doesn&rsquo;t believe Russia attacked our election in 2016,&rdquo;</strong> Graham said of Trump, who has said that &ldquo;nobody really knows&rdquo; whether the Russians were behind attempts to hack the 2016 presidential election.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>President Trump appears to have reversed course rather quickly... or already given up hope...</p>
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">The fact that President Putin and I discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn't mean I think it can happen. It can't-but a ceasefire can,&amp; did!</p>
<p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/884211874518192128">July 10, 2017</a></p></blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script><p>But, hey, at least we got a ceasefire in Southwest Syria (for now).</p>
