    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President-elect Donald Trump, in an interview with the Fox News broadcaster on Sunday, said that reports claiming Russia interfered in the US presidential election to help him win the race were “ridiculous.”

    “@realdonaldtrump tells Chris Wallace the CIA assessment Russia interfered in the election to help him win is “ridiculous",” the broadcaster said on Twitter.

    ​On Friday, US media reported that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) allegedly concluded in a "secret" assessment that Russia had meddled in the November elections.
