1. Obama addresses Russian hacking, Syria, Trump in final 2016 presser
In his final press conference of the year, President Obama on Fridayinsisted his administration handled Russia’s hack of the Democratic National Committee “the way it should have been handled.” Obama revealed that when he met one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the summer, he told Putin to “cut it out” with regard to the cyberattacks. After that interaction, Obama said, he “did not see further tampering of the election process,” but by then “everybody had the information” thanks to the press and WikiLeaks. Obama also addressed the crisis in Aleppo, Syria, calling it “one of the hardest issues that I faced as president.” He described recent conversations with President-elect Donald Trump as “cordial” and focused on “maintaining the effectiveness, integrity, cohesion of the office.”

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
