US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that would impose sanctions against any foreign person or country that attempts to interfere in US elections, Sky News reported on Friday. 

The order instructs the Officer of National Intelligence to conduct regular assessments about potential foreign interference in elections. 

Meanwhile, in a tweet, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Executive Order has made it clear that the US Administration won’t tolerate foreign interference in its democratic processes. 

“Elections are the foundation of our democracy and preserving their integrity is a matter of protecting sovereignty and national security,” he said.

    Donald Trump has closed the stable door after the horse has bolted, it was open in 2016 and he got all the help but it was not his fault the former incumbent was slack and Donald reap the benefit.

    as usual, sri lankans speak through their ass. Conspiracy theories are not proof. If it was proved, he would have to step down ( unlike in SL!!!!)

    Here's a lesson for the US not to interfere in other countries domestic affairs. What goes around comes around.

    We also have to bring new regulations against any Sri Lankan citizen who works with any NGO / other countries to manipulate Sri Lankan elections. For example : paid money to LTTE to stop caste vote by vanni people at the time of president election, . Recent accusation on Chinese company Paid money to leading politician.

    Now that he doesn't need anymore help from Russia.

    Lord Wolfstein Monday, 17 September 2018 09:43 AM

    A man who has learned nothing of the past and who according to his own people is not fit for president. In the election he could not get the majority of votes, only the peculiar American election system has made him president. The necessary votes have brought him the Russians through Internet manipulation. This man has no right to speak for the American people.
