Trump Gets Slammed for Tweeting False Claim About Bill and Hillary Clinton Selling Uranium Supply to Russia

His allegation conveniently came as investigations into his campaign intensified.

Long before taking the presidential oath, Donald Trump mastered the art of distraction. When a finger or allegation was pointed toward Trump regarding any of his sketchy dealings, he would instantly turn the tables to make the conversation about his counterpart Hillary Clinton.

Now that Trump is president, the act of denying any negative assertion and blaming the Clintons has remained his tactical move of choice. 

  • On Monday evening, Donald Trump sent a series of tweets suggesting House Intelligence committees should be investigating the Clintons for selling Uranium to Russia — a claim proven to be false

  • The president even told viewers to watch a Fox News segment that inflated ties between Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and Russia

    During Fox & Friends, Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash, told Steve Doocy that in 2011, Podesta joined the board of Joule Unlimited Technologies, a privately held company based in Massachusetts that quickly attracted a Russian investor. 

  • Trump also tweeted that the failed health bill was a win for the Freedom Caucus and that democrats would be desperate to work with him after Obamacare tanks

  • Trump's tweets conveniently come at a time when investigations of collusion between his campaign and Russia appear to be at a high

    Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has recently been asked to recuse himself from the investigation involving Russia due to his behavior with the White House. Nunes went to the White House to share information he received from a "source" about a Trump campaign member possibly getting picked up during a wiretap ordered by the Obama administration.

    Nunes's source and his claim have not been substantiated. 

  • As a result of Trump's tweets, people called him out for trying to hide and deflect
