In a statement issued after his Dec. 6 meeting with Intelligence Community leaders, President-elect Donald Trump commented on the issue of cybersecurity and its role in the election.

Calling it "a constructive meeting and conversation," Mr. Trump said he has "tremendous respect for the work and service done" by intelligence officials.

In an effort to "aggressively combat and stop cyberattacks," Mr. Trump said he'll appoint an advisory team to create an anti-hacking plan within his first 90 days of taking office.

Additionally, Mr. Trump commented on the role of cyberattacks during the election. "While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat [sic] National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines," his statement reads. "There were attempts to hack the Republican National Committee, but the RNC had strong hacking defenses and the hackers were unsuccessful."
