Amid all the debate of the presidential election being hacked/not hacked going on, President-elect Donald Trump has come to the rescue.
He has an extremely hey-why-didn't-I-think-of-that solution for the whole unpredictable and scary scenario.
Speaking to reporters while in Florida to celebrate New Year's Eve, he apparently said, "It's very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old fashioned way because I'll tell you what, no computer is safe. I don't care what they say, no computer is safe. I have a boy who's 10 years old, he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier."
It's safe to say Trump isn't very pro-computer.
Indeed, his New Year's Eve remarks echo his words to reporters earlier in the week when he suggested that computers confuse things more than enlighten.
"I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what's going on."
He can't seem to wrap his head around the possibility of Russia hacking the U.S.
But he knows one thing for sure:
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?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2016
On New Year's Eve, though, he hinted that he knew more about what's going on than anyone else about the alleged Russian hacking of the Democratic National Convention's computers, which some believe influenced the election result.
Saying that accusing Russia is a "pretty serious charge," he added. "I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove, so it could be somebody else."
In 2015, the U.S. had the highest one-year percentage increase in traffic deaths in half a century. If one is to follow Donald Trump's logic, people should just ditch cars and hitch up horses — the good old-fashioned way.
And let's look at the positive side — apart from there being no chance of hacking a courier, the numbers of jobs being taken over by computers will also come down.
We all know what that means: more jobs. More jobs mean better economy — and yes, America becoming great again.
