During the 2012 presidential campaign, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) said that Russia was America’s top geopolitical threat. In a later debate, Obama responded: “the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
On Sunday, during an exit interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Obama was asked about his remarks and whether he underestimated Vladimir Putin, given Russians involvement in hacking that might have influenced the 2016 presidential election.
“You know, I don’t think I underestimated [Putin],” Obama told Stephanopoulos. “I think that I underestimated the degree to which, in this new information age, it is possible for misinformation, for cyberhacking, and so forth to have an impact on our open societies, our open systems, to insinuate themselves into our democratic practices.”
