U.S. President Donald Trump on a Twitter post on Monday said that his predecessor Barack Obama had paid very little attention to allegations put forwarded by FBI in response to the Russian election meddling and they were only taken seriously after he was elected.

"President Obama thought that Crooked Hillary was going to win the election, so when he was informed by the FBI about Russian Meddling, he said it couldn't happen, was no big deal, & did NOTHING about it. When I won it became a big deal and the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by Strzok!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump was referring to Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival in the 2016 presidential election, and Peter Strzok, an FBI agent who criticised Trump during the campaign.
