On Monday, Trump blamed former President Obama for not acting on the Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump tweeted, “Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election. So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?”

Trump’s attack on Obama comes just a couple days after Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians who are accused of meddling in the election.
One thing to note about Trump and the Russian meddling is that he has done absolutely nothing. Trump still refuses to implement new sanctions against Russia. He even refuses to criticize Russia on Twitter while criticizing almost everyone else.
This is not the first time Trump accused Obama of doing nothing about the Russian meddling.

Back in June, Trump asserted that Obama ignored the meddling because he believed Hillary Clinton would win.
The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..

Also in August, Trump accused Obama of knowing about the interference and not doing anything.
According to report just out, President Obama knew about Russian interference 3 years ago but he didn’t want to anger Russia!

However, Obama did do something about Russia. During the 2016 G20 summit in China, Obama confronted Putin. He also instituted sanctions and expelled 35 diplomats in December of 2016.
Recently, former Vice President Joe Biden revealed that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell prevented the Obama administration from warning about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
According to Biden, McConnell refused to sign a bipartisan statement that would have condemned the Russians for their actions.
