Full Video: President-Elect Trump in Impromptu New Year’s Eve Press Conference Talks Alleged Russian Election Hacking, Israel and Obamacare

Here’s the full video of President-Elect Donald Trump’s impromptu press conference on New Year’s Eve at his annual party at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. He was asked about Russia’s alleged hacking of the U.S. Presidential election, President Obama’s efforts to salvage Obamacare, the U.S. abstention from the UN vote condemning Israeli settlements and other topics. See the complete replay below.





Video is above. The President-Elect voiced skepticism of the allegations of Russia’s hacking of the election — noting the intelligence community had been wrong about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction — and said of hacking that it’s “very hard” to prove. He went on to speak of cybersecurity in general, saying, “no computer is safe.” He said that the only way to assure safety was to “write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way because I’ll tell you what; no computer is safe. I don’t care what they say.”

He was also asked about the UN vote on Israel and if he felt that President Obama is undermining the Israel policy, and he said, “Well, I spoke to him yesterday We have a very nice relationship. But we have to protect Israel.” He went on to criticize Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech.

When asked what his New Year’s resolution is, he said, “Make America great again, OK? You knew that one.”

Guests at the annual bash included Sylvester Stallone and model Fabio.
