US President-elect Donald Trump will take aggressive action against cyber hacking in the early days of his government, Vice President-elect Mike Pence told reporters in New York on Friday.

In a brief statement he delivered outside Trump Tower, Pence commented on a report by US intelligence agencies that concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian government to use hacking to try to help Trump win the Nov. 8 election.

Trump was briefed on the contents of the report earlier on Friday in what Pence called "a constructive and respectful dialog."

"The president-elect has made it very clear that we are going to take aggressive action in the early days of our administration to combat cyber attacks and protect the American people from this type of intrusion in the future," Pence said.
