President-elect Donald Trump slammed the White House this morning, suggesting President Obama and Democrats only cared about Russian interference in the election because their chosen candidate didn’t win.

‘If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House [wait] so long to act? Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?’ Trump tweeted Thursday morning, misspelling the word ‘waite.’
He dashed off an identical, second tweet, making the spelling correction.

Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the White House didn’t hold a Situation Room meeting about the hacks until July, three months after the Democratic National Committee was compromised and, additionally, rejected more robust responses that would have gotten Moscow’s attention.
