Why didn't Obama do anything about Russian interference — Trump

President Snowflake: Trump Needs a Safe Space in Europe

All eyes are on Germany Friday for the G-20 Summit and for the meeting between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin of Russia.

He also lashed out at his predecessor Barack Obama over the vote meddling allegations, saying: "My big question is why did Obama do nothing about it from August until November?" At an Oval Office meeting in May the day after he abruptly fired former FBI Director James Comey, Trump told Russian diplomats that Comey was a "nut job" and that firing him eased pressure from the Russia probe.

Even as he took a harder line on Russian aggression.

On Wednesday during a press conference in Poland, Trump commented that it's likely that Russia meddled in the election, but "nobody knows for sure" if it was the only country interfering. "I think he's looking forward to this as much as my father-in-law is, and this could be a great thing for both countries". "It could have been a lot of people interfered", Trump said.

He downplayed Russia's role in the Presidential race.

The letter cited the findings of the US intelligence community that Putin directed the interference. "Nobody really knows for sure".

Mrs Trump tweeted that she was thinking of those who were hurt during protests on Thursday, adding that she hopes everyone stays safe. How he would do that, specifically, was never mentioned.

Fox News, on the other hand, appears to be widely ignoring the Russian election interference controversy, instead focusing on what should be discussed between the two presidents. "They were wrong and it led to a mess".

Trump's first bilateral meeting as president with the Russian leader will come later today.

Congress is currently considering legislation that would toughen sanctions on Russia. Still, Trump encouraged NATO nations to invest more in their own defense as well as the common defense, and praised Poland's decision to purchase more Patriot anti-missile systems.

He also welcomed a decision to expand the G20's agenda to include sustainable development, climate change, counterterrorism and corruption plus healthcare, migration and refugees.
