President Donald Trump said the media doesn’t want to cover a controversial uranium deal with Russia he claimed was arranged with the help of Hillary Clinton.

His comments came in a tweet posted on Thursday.

His tweet follows a report by The Hill that the Obama administration had approved a deal in 2010 giving Russia control of a large chunk of American uranium.

However, the website said the FBI had obtained evidence earlier that Russia nuclear officials had taken part in bribery, kickbacks and extortion designed to increase its atomic energy business inside the U.S.

It also reported the FBI had obtained an eyewitness account that Russian officials had sent millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to help former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation. The money reportedly came at the same time Hillary Clinton served on the government panel that gave a favorable decision to the deal with Moscow, according to the Hill.

Later, he tweeted another Clinton claim to the Fox News morning show "Fox & Friends."
