President-elect Trump said Wednesday President Obama’s swipes at him recently are complicating the transition process, and he called into question whether Obama wanted a smooth transition.
“Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks. Thought it was going to be a smooth transition – NOT!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.
Trump has been incensed after Obama claimed in an interview with CNN that he would have defeated Trump in the 2016 election if he was able to run again. Following those comments, Trump lashed out on Twitter Tuesday at Obama, saying voters rejected his policies and message in November.
Trump said he had consulted Obama on Cabinet picks and talked to him frequently during the transition process. In rally speeches during his thank you tour, Trump backed off his attacks on Obama and even praised him and first lady Michelle Obama.
More attacks on Obama may be coming from Trump on Wednesday after Gallup named Obama the most admired man in the world for the ninth consecutive year.
