Trump Connections to the Far-Right at Home and Abroad and Refusal to Read/Accept US Intelligence Reports on Russian Hacks Alarms Former Officials

Trump Camp’s Pepe Meme First Appeared on White Supremacist Sites – The Daily Beast – The Trump campaign is not new to carelessly disseminating images that generate from white supremacist sources. He has retweeted memes from Twitter accounts with handles like @WhiteGenocideTM (that tweet has still not been deleted). Trump faced widespread criticism for sharing an image of Clinton next to a Star of David on top of a pile of money that was first housed on a white supremacist forum.

As the campaign responds to accusations that some of its supporters are bigoted, sharing pictures from racist message boards will do little to help quell those rumors.

The Republican nominee was told of Russian culpability in a private intelligence briefing. Trump refusal to accept government assessments on Russian hacks dismays former officials – The Washington Post – “It defies logic,” retired Gen. Michael V. Hayden, former director of the CIA and the National Security Agency, said of Trump’s pronouncements. Trump has assured supporters that, if elected, he would surround himself with experts on defense and foreign affairs, where he has little experience. But when it comes to Russia, he has made it clear that he is not listening to intelligence officials, the former officials said. “He seems to ignore their advice,” Hayden said. “Why would you assume this would change when he is in office?”
