Trump: Russia did not affect 2016 election vote

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to state that whatever Russia may have done during the 2016 presidential elections was done while Barack Obama was in office and that it did not affect its outcome in any event.

Trump tweeted that "anything the Russians did concerning the 2016 Election was done while Obama was President. He was told about it and did nothing! Most importantly, the vote was not affected."

Trump's tweet came after the Department of Justice released Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report to the public on Thursday. Trump subsequently stated that he could have "fired everyone" involved in the Russia probe but chose not to.
