“President Trump, in a series of angry and defiant tweets on Sunday morning, sought to shift the blame to Democrats for Russia’s virtual war to meddle in the 2016 election, saying that President Obama had not done enough to stop the interference and denying that he had ever suggested that Moscow might not have been involved,” the New York Times reports.
Tweeted Trump: “If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.”
Politico: “He did not criticize Russia, or voice concern over Vladimir Putin’s attempts to undermine U.S. elections.”
Washington Post: “Trump, ensconced at Mar-a-Lago, has so far stayed away from the golf course even though the weather has been sunny and almost 80 degrees — in what aides describe as showing respect for the 17 killed in a mass school shooting in Florida this week. The president has instead, spent much of his time watching television and tweeting.”
