President Trump called out his predecessor Tuesday, charging that Obama took no action on attempted Russian interference in the US election process because he thought it would help Hillary Clinton win.

“‘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,’” Trump tweeted, quoting Obama from prior to the election when Trump was expressing concern over potential meddling.

“The President Obama quote just before election. That’s because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn’t want to ‘rock the boat,’” Trump added. “When I easily won the Electoral College, the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems,” The President further charged.
