2016 US elections

Editor's note: President-elect Donald Trump's tweet praising Russian President Vladimir Putin's decision to not respond to new U.S. sanctions comes a day after he said it was time for the U.S. to "move on to bigger and better things." On Thursday, the Obama administration announced measures against Russia in response to cyberattacks during the presidential election. Putin responded by condemning the sanctions but said Russia will not retaliate. U.S. federal intelligence agencies have reported Russia was behind the wave of cyberattacks that shook up the presidential election, Politico notes, but some members of Trump's team have said the media and the Democratic Party's discussions of the attacks are efforts to delegitimize his incoming administration. Trump has said he would meet with intelligence officials next week "in order to be updated on the facts of this situation." - Stephanie
