READ: Donald Trump Tweets ‘Anything the Russians Did Concerning the 2016 Election Was Done While Obama Was President. He Was Told About It and Did Nothing!’

Of course.

President Donald Trump on Thursday lashed out at his predecessor, Barack Obama, following revelations within Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that Trump’s presidential campaign knowingly benefited from Russian election interference in 2016.

“The investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts,” the report states. Mueller could not establish, however, that the Trump campaign participated in a coordinated effort with the Russians.

Trump saw this as an opportunity to stick it to Obama.

“Anything the Russians did concerning the 2016 Election was done while Obama was President,” Trump tweeted. “He was told about it and did nothing! Most importantly, the vote was not affected.”

Note that the president is deflecting blame onto Obama for not stopping the Russians from meddling in an election he won.

He is terrified of being viewed as illegitimate. This is peak Trump.

Trump’s assertions are not true. But hey, at least he now acknowledges the Russians did it.

Obama did, in fact, take action.
