His remarks follow after 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups were charged with several counts of attempting to meddling in the 2016 election.
The indictment suggests that the goal of the Russians was to aide then-candidate Donald Trump while hurting his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Several of the Russians allegedly posed as Americans and influenced “unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities.”
Trump has repeatedly denounced the speculation that his campaign had coordinated with the Russians to influence the 2016 race and has attacked Democrats for improper collusion with the FBI.
There are currently several investigations looking into Russia’s election interference and potential ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Thousands of newly anointed activists gathered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this Saturday to stand up for the victims of a recent deadly school shooting and demand immediate action from politicians amid a renewed discussion over the nation’s loose gun laws.
The rally consisted of three long days of grief and anger following the aftermath of the shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland which left 17 people dead and 14 others injured.
However amid the speeches from elected officials and school administrators, it was the students the survivors of the shooting who spearheaded the calls to restrict access to firearms.
