trump-obamaPresident-elect Donald Trump is still attacking President Obama on Twitter, saying that it’s his predecessor’s fault that the transition of power has taken a turn for the worse recently.

The relationship between Trump and Obama got surprisingly cordial in the first few weeks after the mogul claimed victory in the 2016 election. Even so, tensions have been boiling over lately, so Trump decided to go on the attack on Wednesday morning.

Trump offered similar comments throughout this week, ever since Obama said in an interview that he could’ve beaten the mogul if the 2016 election was between the two of them.
