Trump accuses Obama of inaction over Russia meddling claim

US President Donald Trump has accused his predecessor Barack Obama of inaction over alleged Russian interference in the US election.

He said Obama had learned well before the poll about the accusations and did nothing.

His comments came after an article published in an English daily said that Obama learned last August of President Vladimir Putin’s direct involvement.

The daily says Obama was told early August last year by sources deep within the Russian government that Putin was directly involved in a cyber campaign to disrupt the election, injure Hillary Clinton and aid a Trump victory.
