Trump's latest criticism of former President Barack Obama comes as he's deflected questions about his own administration's response to Russian meddling and measures the U.S. can take to prevent it.

Trump's response was notable - after Russian President Vladimir Putin decided not to expel USA diplomats in retaliation, Mr. Trump tweeted, "Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart!" At that point, Obama wanted to issue a bipartisan statement about the Russian meddling, but was rebuffed by Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"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?"

"Ask Jeff Session!" he concluded, misspelling the last name of his attorney general.
