Trump’s Ties to Russia: Trump Irrationally Obsesses, Deflects to Obama


In an attempt to deflect attention from a growing scandal involving his Administration’s connections to Russian government officials. President Donald Trump maintains an obsession on the person he’s always been obsessed about from the beginning: former President Obama.

Only this time, Trump is President of the United States ad he’s desperate to end constant talk about how he and his staff are unnaturally friendly with Russia and Vladimir Putin. 

As of this morning President Trump is calling for Congress to investigate the man he’s most obsessed with: Barack Obama.

Statement from the Press Secretary

Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. 

President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016. 

Neither the White House nor the President will comment further until such oversight is conducted.
