Trump: 'Hopefully No Meddling' in 2018 Elections

Thursday, 01 November 2018 07:17 PM

President Donald Trump says his administration has spent a lot of time, money and effort to make sure that Tuesday's midterm elections are "perfect and safe" in contrast to the Russian meddling that intelligence agencies said occurred during the 2016 presidential election.

He told reporters Thursday at the White House that "there will be, hopefully, no meddling, no tampering, no nothing."

Trump had a meeting on election security Thursday with FBI Director Chris Wray, members of the Justice Department, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.

Trump criticized former President Barack Obama, saying he was told about potential Russian meddling before the 2016 election but didn't take public actions because he thought Democrat Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election.
