Last week, though, he admitted in a tweet that he was under FBI investigation for possible ties to Russia, and after the Washington Post on Friday reported that the Barack Obama administration learned last August that Russia tried to help Trump, the president went on another Twitter rant stretching from Friday night into Saturday evening.
And in doing so, he seemed to admit that Russia did, in fact, meddle in the election.
Just out: The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2017
Then, on Saturday, Trump interspersed rants on the Senate healthcare proposal with bashing former President Barack Obama for not trying to stop Russia. Here are his tweets in the order they were tweeted (and since when did Trump start referring to himself as ‘T’?).
Democrats slam GOP healthcare proposal as Obamacare premiums & deductibles increase by over 100%. Remember keep your doctor, keep your plan?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2017
Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? Focus on them, not T!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2017
Obama Administration official said they "choked" when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn't want to hurt Hillary?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2017
I cannot imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2017
If White House officials really have been allowing Trump to rant on early-morning phone calls so he’ll stop blasting out on Twitter, perhaps they need to find a better way to schedule their Saturday shifts.
