Trump says Obama mocked fears of Russian election meddling in 2016 because ‘he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn’t want to rock the boat’

President Donald Trump blasted his predecessor on Tuesday morning for downplaying the role Russians could play in trying to affect the outcome of the last election.

The president quoted Barack Obama – parroting a morning ‘Fox & Friends’ broadcast that did the same – saying on October 18, 2016 that America’s elections couldn’t be ‘rigged.’

‘There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, there’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that it will happen this time, and so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and make his case to get votes,’ the former president said then.

Trump quoted him in full in a tweet, and then claimed in a follow-up that Obama at the time ‘thought Crooked Hillary [Clinton] was going to win and he didn’t want to “rock the boat.” When I easily won the Electoral College, the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems.

Driving his point home, Trump tweeted later in the morning that ‘I have been much tougher on Russia than Obama, just look at the facts. Total Fake News!’
