U.S. President-elect Donald Trump complained Thursday about attempts to undermine his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton with ongoing claims that Russia launched cyberattacks to boost his chances of winning.

Trump asked in a Twitter comment, “If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act? Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?”

One of his top aides, Kellyanne Conway, in a TV interview rebuked White House spokesman Josh Earnest for suggesting Wednesday that Trump might have known during the campaign of the alleged Russian interference in the U.S. presidential contest and that “their involvement was having a negative impact” on Clinton’s campaign.
