On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump reached a new low with his attacks on Twitter. In what appeared to be a distraction from the growing scandal involving Russia, Trump made serious allegations against Barack Obama.

Obama speaks

Taking to his Twitter account early Saturday morning, Donald Trump made allegations about Barack Obama that he compared to Watergate. "Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory," Trump tweeted, before continuing on a multiple-tweet rant, labeling the former president a "bad" and "sick" guy for going to a "new low" in attacking him.

The allegations made by Trump come without evidence, but seem to suggest that they were based of an unverified report from Breitbart News. As reported by CBS News on March 4, Obama has finally addressed the issue with a statement of his own.

In a statement released on behalf of Barack Obama, spokesman Kevin Lewis quickly shot down the claims made by Donald Trump. "A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House offical ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice," the statement reads.

Continuing, the statement then addresses the allegations head on. "As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House offical ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen," it continued, before concluding that "Any suggestion otherwise is simply false."

Russian trouble

Donald Trump's attack on Obama comes just 24 hours after the former host of "The Apprentice" called for separate investigations into Senate Minority Leader Sen.

Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Trump took to Twitter once again and posted photos of the two Democratic leaders showing their interaction with Russian officials in the past, in what has been interpreted as a clear deflection from the growing scandal with the Kremlin. As of press time, the White House has not offered any proof to back up the claims made in Trump's earlier tweets, nor have they responded to the statement released by Obama. After just over a month with Trump in the White House, only time will tell what the next step is.
