US President-elect Joe Biden says that the perpetrators of a massive cyberattack on the US government must face consequences, and calls out President Donald Trump over his response to the threat.
“We can’t let this go unanswered,” Biden says in pre-holiday remarks to the American people. “That means making clear and publicly who is responsible for the attack and taking meaningful steps to hold them in account.”
“This assault happened on Donald Trump’s watch when he wasn’t watching,” Biden charges. “Rest assured that even if he does not take it seriously, I will.”
