Anand Giridharadas: Russia Hacking ‘Only Worked Because We So Mistrust Each Other’

‘I don’t think we can afford to not be reconciled to each other over these four years’

GIRIDHARADAS: "I think we’re going to have to agree to disagree about Donald Trump for four years. That's my guess. I don’t think there’s going to be a prospect of reconciliation about him. But I don’t think we can afford to not be reconciled to each other over these four years. The Russian hacking was so interesting because it only worked because we so mistrust each other that a foreign government can plant fake stories and we are more likely to trust some planted fake stories by a foreign intelligence service than each other. So those are my wishes."
