On Sunday, the president tweeted that he “hereby demand[s]… that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration,” a request that was met with harsh criticism.
