Former President Barack Obama didn’t do anything about Russia before the presidential election in 2016 because, “it is all a big hoax, that’s why, and he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win,” tweeted President Donald Trump on Sunday.

Trump has been casting blame on Obama for not acting against Russian hackers who were meddling with the election since special counsel Robert Mueller brought indictments against Russians and Russian entities in February.

Top U.S. intelligence officials privately told Russian officials to cease from their active measures, though, and Obama told Russian President Vladimir Putin not to meddle, but those warnings didn’t work.

The tweet comes after Trump spent days trying to reassure the country that he accepts that the longtime foe interfered in the 2016 election after his public undermining of U.S. intelligence agencies in Helsinki while standing alongside Putin. But on Sunday, Trump cast doubts once again, diminishing at least the significance, if not the existence, of the interference and the U.S. investigation into Russia's actions.

"So President Obama knew about Russia before the Election," Trump tweeted Sunday that President Barack Obama knew about Russia before the election but questioned: "Why didn't he do something about it? Because it is all a big hoax, that's why."
