In recent days, Donald Trump has been on the defensive as the president has pushed back against the growing allegations surrounding his administration. In his latest social media attack, Trump has once again set his sights on Barack Obama.

Trump on Obama

Just last week, the Washington Post broke a bombshell story that revealed current Attorney General Jeff Sessions had failed to disclose at least two private meetings with Russian officials during his Senate confirmation hearing. The meetings allegedly took place during the campaign, in July and September of last year.

The news comes less than a month after retired Gen. Michael Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Adviser due to his communication with a Russian offical at the end of 2016. In response, Donald Trump came to the defense of Sessions on social media, while also hitting back at the Democratic Party. As part of his attack, Trump went after Barack Obama, going as far as accusing him of wiretapping Trump Tower. As seen during a pair of March 7 Twitter posts, Trump has decided to target Obama once again.

"122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter early Tuesday morning, before adding, "Just another terrible decision!" Not stopping there, the former host of "The Apprentice" continued his attack on the former commander in chief.

"For eight years Russia 'ran over"' President Obama, got stronger and stronger, picked-off Crimea and added missiles," Donald Trump added in a follow-up message on Twitter, while adding, "Weak!" Trump's decision to go after Obama comes without evidence, and appears to have originated in a Breitbart News article that pushed the story of the potential wiretapping of Trump Tower.

Obama released a statement through a spokesman over the weekend that denied wrongdoing doing, with many others pushing back at the allegations.

While the majority of the mainstream news media has dismissed Trump's attack, the president and his team are sticking to their story, despite the lack of proof behind the claim in question.
