DNC on Trump Joking About Election Interference

In response to Trump joking with Putin about election interference, DNC Deputy War Room Director Daniel Wessel released the following statement:

“Russia attacked our democracy, and they’re already working to do so again. Instead of taking this threat seriously, Trump thinks it’s a joke. Time and again, he has refused to stand up to Putin and downplayed Russia’s election interference. Our country deserves a leader who is willing to protect our democracy, not one who laughs it off.”
