WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US President-elect Donald Trump slammed on Monday talks of alleged Russian interference in the November 8 presidential election and called it a conspiracy theory.

"Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory!" Trump stated in a Twitter message.

​The president-elect argued that "unless you catch ‘hackers’ in the act, it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking."

"Why wasn't this brought up before election?" Trump asked.

​On Sunday, Trump said in an interview with Fox News that claims about alleged Russian influence on US election were "ridiculous."
