Not long after Donald Trump was sworn into office as the 45th President of the United States, he quickly faced massive criticism [VIDEO] from the mainstream media over allegations of collusion with Russia. Despite this, the president is attempting to turn the tables on the Democrats.

Trump on Twitter

It didn't take long before questions were raised about Donald Trump's potential ties to Russia after he announced his campaign for president back in the summer of 2015. Due to Trump's business background with various private companies and governments, the former host of "The Apprentice" came on fire for allegedly being in cahoots with the Kremlin.

Speculation escalated when Trump would refuse to criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin, while also keeping his taxes hidden from the public, becoming the first major presidential candidate to do so in the last 40 years. Following Trump's win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, government findings and reports from several well-respected news outlets concluded that Russia hacked the election [VIDEO] in favor of the billionaire real estate mogul's candidacy. As expected, Trump and the Russian government have denied any wrongdoing, which has led to a congressional investigation on the matter led by special counsel Robert Mueller. However, earlier this week the Washington Post reported that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic national committee helped fund the now infamous "pee tape" dossier, which Trump commented on during an October 27 tweet.

Taking to his Twitter account on Friday morning, Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of being the one who was in collusion with Russia over the reported funding of the aforementioned dossier by her campaign and the DNC. "It is now commonly agreed, after many months of COSTLY looking, that there was NO collusion between Russia and Trump," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Was collusion with HC!"

Trump on dossier

Donald Trump's latest tweet doubles down on his previous remarks during an interview with the Fox Business Channel over the weekend. While speaking to host Lou Dobbs, Trump spoke about the reported funding of the dossier by the Democrats as "disgrace," while calling the details of the document "fake news." The dossier, which was released by CNN earlier this year, linked Trump back to Russia in various ways.

Buzzfeed elaborated further, citing, without evidence, that the president took part in alleged sexual acts with Russian prostitutes.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump and the White House continue to push back at the allegations of collusion with Russia, the president has a variety of other issues to face. As questions still surround the future of health care and tax reform, the tension between the United States and North Korea have only increased as the president's approval rating stands at less than 40 percent.
