Trump: We'll have report on hacking defense within 90 days

US President-elect Donald Trump said intelligence agencies are very important and he will be bringing the best people in response to a press conference question: “Do you trust intelligence officials?”

Trump said intelligence chiefs will be coming back to him within 90 days with a major report on hacking defense.

The president-elect said the United States is hacked by everybody, including Russia and China.

When asked why he had been criticizing the intelligence community and its conclusion that Russia was behind the cyberattacks, which he now seemed to admit, he stated: “I think it’s pretty sad when intelligence reports get leaked out to the press,” adding it’s illegal.
