DNC on Trump’s Executive Order To Sanction Foreign Election Interference

In response to Trump’s executive order to authorize sanctions on foreign entities who interfere in future elections, DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson released the following statement:


“This is a small step, but there is still much more that must be done to secure our elections. Trump’s executive order does nothing to hold Russia accountable for their 2016 election interference, and Republicans have repeatedly refused to join Democrats in providing additional, necessary funding to states for election security. If Trump is serious about protecting our elections, he must do more to stand up to Russia and to provide states with the resources they need to defend against future attacks from foreign adversaries.”
