Following just a few short months in the White House, Donald Trump is facing daily criticism in regards to the ongoing scandal involving Russia. As the pressure continues to mount, the president has once again put the focus on Hillary Clinton.

Trump on Twitter

Not long after Donald Trump announced that he was running for president he was hit with allegations of being linked back to Russia. Trump's behavior during the 2016 presidential election continued to raise questions around the issue, including his refusal to release his tax returns and his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In addition, several past and present advisers and associates of Trump have been caught with their own ties to the Kremlin, casting further doubt over the head of the former host of "The Apprentice." Since his shocking upset win over Hillary Clinton last November, multiple well-respected news outlets, as well as various government agencies, have released information that links Trump and his administration to Russia. As expected, Trump and his team have denied any wrongdoing, with the president repeatedly referring to the allegations against him as a "witch hunt." On Wednesday night, the latest twist in the story was revealed to be that the president is now under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

After addressing the issue in a morning social media rant, Trump returned to Twitter on June 15 to express his outrage.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump decided to push back against the claims against him, while taking several shots at the former Secretary of State.

"Why is that Hillary Clinton's family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" Trump rhetorically asked in a tweet.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump went back on the attack in a follow-up tweet, once against smearing Hillary Clinton in the process.

"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, 'bleached' emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?" he wrote.

Moving forward

As new information continues to be released in regards to the Russian Scandal and investigation, Donald Trump is being backed into a corner where he is having trouble defending himself. The commander in chief and his administration have remained defiant, dismissing the report against him as "fake news," as Trump stands his ground. While it's unknown how the scandal will play out in the future, it's expected that the White House will not back down anytime soon.
