If President Trump believed Vladimir Putin’s denial of Russian involvement in the hacking and possible election tampering of last November’s election, then he would not have had such harsh words of accusation against Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats. Believing there was Russian meddling and that it was known by the Obama administration last summer, and yet they did nothing to stop it or investigate it.
President Trump on Sunday slammed former President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats, questioning why they didn’t appear to respond appropriately to signs that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
In a series of tweets following the weekend G-20 summit, Trump also appeared to suggest that reports about members of the U.S. intelligence community unanimously concluding that Russia meddled in the race are not accurate.
I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I’ve already given my opinion…..
Fake News said 17 intel agencies when actually 4 (had to apologize). Why did Obama do NOTHING when he had info before election?” he tweeted…
Trump has a valid case of dereliction of duty on Obama and Democrats concerning Russian election meddling. They knew months in advance and did absolutely nothing until AFTER Trump won. If it was the big deal they are making it out to be now, then why didn’t they take action when they first learned about it? As long as they believed Clinton would win, they didn’t care, but only after Trump won did they care and now they keep trying to blame Trump instead of their own inaction.
