As the Russian investigation heats up, the White House is dealing with constant pressure over the issue. In his latest social media rant, Donald Trump once again decided to deflect the blame onto former President Barack Obama and the Democrats.

Trump on Russia

Ever since the day Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States, he's been forced to deal with allegations that he's been in cahoots with Russia.

Not long after his election win, it was revealed by several news outlets and government agencies that Russia hacked the 2016 election with the goal of helping to get Trump into office. An investigation was soon set up, now led by special counsel Robert Mueller, who has indicted nearly two dozen people, some of which have links back to the Trump campaign.

As new information becomes available, Donald Trump's position has changed to fit his defense and talking points. In a tweet sent out on February 21, a re-post of a deleted tweet after misspelling Jeff Sessions' name incorrectly, the president went back to blaming Democrats and the former president. "Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation?" Trump tweeted.

"Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation?" he wondered. before adding, "Ask Jeff Sessions!" As has been the case with many of his tweets, the president faced immediate criticism.

Twitter reaction

In response to his tweet about an investigation into Democrats and Barack Obama, Donald Trump was given a reality check.

"You realize in one tweet you just showed everyone you haven't paid attention to security briefings for the past year," a tweet read.

"What happened to Jeff Session?

Did you fire him and replace him with Jeff Sessions? You are the President. You are the one who should ask Jeff Sessions (or Jeff Session...). is answer will be simple: 'They didn't commit crimes,'" one tweet added. "He tried to sanction them but you won't implement the sanctions," a follow-up tweet noted.

"So you’re admitting you also committed crimes?!

Interesting," a Twitter user wrote. "Oh OK so it's sessions you're throwing under the bus. Thanks for the clarification," an additional tweet went on to read. The negative reactions continued to pour in as the opposition to Donald Trump and the entire administration shows no signs of letting their foot off the gas of criticism anytime soon.
