TRUMP STRIKES BACK: The President USES OBAMA QUOTE to Slam Russia Meddling

President Donald Trump called-out his predecessor’s total inaction over allegations the Russian government was meddling in the 2016 presidential election Tuesday; using Obama’s own words to slam his administration’s “minimal response” to foreign interference.

Trump quoted former President Barack Obama on Twitter using comments delivered ahead of Election Day; with Obama telling Trump to “stop whining” and claiming “no serious person out there” would believe the Russians could impact a US election cycle.

“There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, there’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that it will happen this time, and so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and make his case to get votes,” he tweeted.

“The President Obama quote just before election. That’s because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn’t want to “rock the boat.” When I easily won the Electoral College, the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems,” he added.

President Trump’s comments come less than a week after Robert Mueller indicted thirteen Russian nationals for election interference; going so far as to organize political rallies and purchase millions of dollars of social media advertisements.
