In recent days, the biggest story to dominate the news cycle has been what impact Russia has on the current White House. In response, Donald Trump has pushed back at the allegations on Twitter, despite many on his own staff having no idea what he is talking about.

Trump push back

Over the last 72 hours, President Donald Trump has been backed into a corner and forced to deal with the growing allegations of a scandal taking place in his own administration. Since the election, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been accused of having some sort of link to Russia.

From his hidden tax returns, to members of his campaign being financially tied to the Kremlin, to the president's constant praise of Vladimir Putin, Trump has been unable to shake the label of being linked to Russia. After retired Gen. Michael Flynn was exposed for engaging in communication with Russian officials, he was forced to resign as National Security Adviser last month. Just last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was revealed to have spoken to the ambassador of Russia on at least two different occasions during the campaign, but never disclosed the information during his Senate hearing. Over the weekend, Trump fired back at the allegations, going as far as to accuse Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones at Trump Tower.

As reported by The Hill on March 4, senior White House officials don't seem to be on the same page as the president.

According to The Hill on Saturday night, a senior offical in the White House confirmed that "neither he, nor other administration officials, seemed to know what the president was talking," in regards to the aforementioned allegations regarding wiretapping.

During his tweet-storm on Saturday morning, Donald Trump wrote, "Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory," Trump wrote on Twitter, while also referring to Obama as a "bad" and "sick" person. Not stopping there, the former host of "The Apprentice" went as far as to compare Obama to disgraced former President Richard Nixon.

"This is Nixon/Watergate," he tweeted.
