Trump Dismisses Russia Sanctions: ‘Time for Our Country to Move On’

President-elect Trump breaks his silence on new U.S. sanctions against Russia.

"It's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things," Trump said in a statement. "Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation."

Trump has had access to the presidential daily briefing since his election, and his transition team claims he is receiving it at least three times a week.

The transition team did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment on whether existing intelligence on Russian cyberattacks has been available to him up to this point.
