Trump turns Obama quote on election-rigging against him in Russia debate

President Trump on Tuesday turned a 2016 quote from then-President Barack Obama against him in the ongoing battle over Russian interference in the election — claiming it shows Democrats are using the meddling as a belated “excuse” for losing.

Trump cited remarks made by Obama at a press conference with then-Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi just weeks before the election, in which Obama advised then-candidate Trump to “stop whining” about potential election rigging.

“There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part because they’re so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved,” Obama said.

Trump tweeted that quote Tuesday morning, citing it as proof Democrats’ attitudes changed after he won the election.

    The only “meddling” being done is by mueller and his team of obama leftovers whose continued job is to destroy President Trump in anyway they can as directed by their previous bosses. This is part of the “insurance policy”.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Russian has actively interfered in western elections since 1917.

    That is a fact!

    I must agree with you Navy Bob.

    While the MSM is straining at the bit about 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies being indicted, they are missing the whole story. Bigger points announced in the indictment:

    1. While there was meddling by these individuals and companies, there is NO evidence it changed ONE VOTE.

    2. NO American KNOWINGLY participated in the meddling. In other words, NO COLLUSION.

    3, This meddling effort was more anti-Hillary than pro-Trump. They worked FOR both Stein and Sanders. Will the special prosecutor and Democrats in Congress now subject Stein and Sanders to the same inquisition they have subjected Trump to? After the election, they had rallies FOR Hillary as well as for Trump. Will she be asked about those?

    4. The entire meddling effort was to foster dissent, confusion and lack of trust in our electoral system. Thanks to the Democrats and their constant whining about loosing, the Russian efforts succeeded. Congratulations, Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi, Hoyer and the rest of you: You will be honored and remembered as Heroes of Russia.
