THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY
The President of the United States of America.

All Trump would need to do is say something to the effect of, "Russia, if you're listening, I don't want your help and you best stay out of U.S. elections - the full weight of the U.S. government and private/government security will be watching closely and will prosecute/sanction any Russians involved in violation of U.S. and international election laws".

Trump doesn't denounce Russian election interference, however.  He instead denies it even exists and lashes out when the very real threat is spoken about honestly.  

Last election cycle, Trump himself stood on a public platform and said to the world, "Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing” in reference to Hillary Clinton's emails -- thereby encouraging election interference and illegal distribution of stolen property. 

I'm not among those who claims that Russian interference is what got Trump elected in 2016.   However, I do believe Trump's own behavior and attitude towards it is a main reason Russia felt so emboldened, and why some in Trump's camp got themselves in such hot water working covertly with Russia on behalf of Trump and lying about it (as evidenced via investigations, witness testimony, and convictions).

In answer to your question, "what is Russia doing anyway?" Mags.............it's a long-established fact that Putin actively seeks to sow discord among citizens and governments in the U.S. and other democratic societies.

There's been plenty of hard evidence put forth over the last several years as to what Russia did in the U.S. during the 2016 election.....which has been covered in court cases, in the news, and here at Mock.  

As a reminder:  Russian government-sponsored troll farms working non-stop to spread misinformation via very targeted marketing gained from users' electronic profiles, misinformation campaigns spread via social media, attempts to hack electronic voting machines, operatives infiltrating political organizations under false pretenses, etc...........

Anyway, President Trump has the power to control/change the wide-spread perception that he's in Putin's pocket by acknowledging, denouncing, and actively combating Russian interference, rather than denying it.  Unless/until he does so (which Bernie had zero problem doing), his attempts to blame others just sound like more shady projectionist bullshit.

Just tossing out the fact that they are trying to affect the election is causing trouble even if they do nothing. I'm more concerned with Iran, N.Korea or any of the other players jumping in. They cannot mess with the votes and can only mess with peoples minds and the Russians are great at that. Coming to America and kicking the beehive of political discord is really easy to do and we only have ourselves to blame.

We really are our own worst enemy.
