Trump accused Obama of inaction against Russian influence in the elections

Trump Blames Obama For Not Doing Enough About 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.

On Monday, after a weekend filled with tweets about the Mueller indictments, Trump falsely suggested Obama didn't "do something" about Russian meddling. He is finally right about something.

President Obama was warned that Russian Federation would try to interfere in America's elections. "Thank you Adam!" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Facebook's new ad policy comes just days after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians for meddling in the United States presidential election.

Russians are laughing uncontrollably at the Kremlin about how they have brought fear on the democratic institutions of the greatest nations on earth.

But his Tuesday resurfacing of that line of attack comes days after special counselor Robert Mueller announced indictments against 13 Russian nationals for their alleged efforts to interfere in the 2016 race. "I have seen all of the Russian ads and I can say very definitively that swaying the election was *NOT* the main goal".

Trump, for once, agreed with Schiff. "But I think we also get hacked by other countries and other people". Twitter says that about 1.4 million users have received notifications from the service telling them that they may have followed or interacted with IRA-linked accounts. Trump tweeted, going on to assert: "I have been much tougher on Russian Federation than Obama, just look at the facts". "And they should have defended being more public and aggressive at the time, at least in my view". According to the indictment, they operated social media accounts pretending to be American and set up Facebook groups and events, and the content they pushed was not created to persuade people to change their views, but to harden their pre-existing beliefs.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the election, and Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.

The president spent hours watching news coverage with his two adult sons, growing angrier and angrier as commentators credited Russian interference for his election win and teenage survivors of a Florida school shooting criticized him, reported Time. Just a year ago in November, after the first official meeting between President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump at a Vietnam summit, the U.S. president said that he was ready to believe the Putin's deniability about the issue. In the last few days, Trump attacked the FBI by suggesting that the school shooting in Parkland, FL could've been avoided if only the bureau wasn't so preoccupied investigating Russian Federation.
