President Trump has been dismissing the protests against his presidency and demonstrations at congressional town hall meetings across the country as concocted by his political enemies. But now he has an alleged culprit: Barack Obama.
In an interview Monday with Fox News Channel, Trump said that he believes his predecessor is helping to organize the protests.
“I think that President Obama is behind it because his people certainly are behind it,” Trump said. “In terms of him being behind things, that’s politics. It will probably continue.”
Trump made his comments during an interview at the White House with “Fox & Friends” anchors Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt. Most of the interview will air Tuesday morning, in advance of Trump’s formal address to a joint session of Congress, but Fox released an excerpt Monday of his remarks about Obama.
In the interview, one of the Fox trio told Trump that Obama’s political group — presumably Organizing for Action, the successor group to Obama’s campaigns — was helping to organize activists to demonstrate, and asked the president whether he suspected Obama himself was behind the efforts.
“I think he is behind it,” Trump said. “I also think it’s politics. That’s the way it is.”
A spokesman for Obama did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
Trump has lambasted the town-hall demonstrators on social media, tweeting last week that they were “so-called angry crowds” and that the demonstrations were “planned out by liberal activists.”
Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row
Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.
The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.
Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.
The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.
“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
