Donald Trump did what we never thought he would do, which was admit that Russia did interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Well, on Friday evening, Trump took to Twitter and appeared to finally admit it.
Trump tweeted out saying:
“The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?”
Just out: The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY?

In response, hundreds of Twitter users trolled the president.

Three steps of the Trump Administration
1 Blame your predecessor
2 Lie about your accomplishments
3 Steal the money
Once complete repeat.

I'm gonna guess and say: Trump criticizing Obama for not doing enough to stop Russian meddling was not the WH staff's idea of a strategy

What's scary is trump during the election kept chanting about everything being rigged, which in turn helped Russia regardless. #Maddow

You do realize you just confessed that Russia meddled in the election you won, right? That you were the beneficiary of their act of war? https://t.co/cnbgtLshDd
