'I think he is behind it': Trump accuses Obama of organizing protests against him

'I think he is behind it': Trump accuses Obama of organizing protests against him
By David Choi Business Insider

President Donald Trump delivered a scathing accusation against former President Barack Obama in an interview released Monday night.

Trump was asked whether Obama was responsible for organizing some of the recent political protests against him and other Republicans — including the widely publicized demonstrations at GOP town-hall meetings.

"No, I think he is behind it," Trump said in a preview of an interview with "Fox and Friends" released Monday night. "I also think it's politics — that's the way it is."

"You never know what's exactly happening behind the scenes," Trump said. "You never know."

Trump has faced protests across the US often in the months since he was elected. The president has continued to claim that demonstrators opposing his presidency are professional agitators. Trump's many squabbles have also played out under the specter of his self-declared war with US news organizations.

Here is more of Trump's quote on the question of protesters gathering around the US:

"No, I think that President Obama's behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks … possibly come from that group ... But I also understand that's politics, and in terms of him being behind things, that's politics, and it will probably continue."
