President Donald Trump unleashed on former President Barack Obama on Wednesday night as Obama attacked him during a speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Trump tweeted, “HE SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN, AND GOT CAUGHT!”

“WHY DID HE REFUSE TO ENDORSE SLOW JOE UNTIL IT WAS ALL OVER, AND EVEN THEN WAS VERY LATE?” Trump continued. “WHY DID HE TRY TO GET HIM NOT TO RUN?”

Trump’s tweets come after Obama attacked the president during his DNC speech, saying, “I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously; that he might come to feel the weight of the office and discover some reverence for the democracy that had been placed in his care.”

“But he never did. For close to four years now, he’s shown no interest in putting in the work; no interest in finding common ground; no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends; no interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves,” Obama continued. “Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. And the consequences of that failure are severe. 170,000 Americans dead. Millions of jobs gone while those at the top take in more than ever. Our worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before.”

Trump also tweeted out a video that brought up the elements of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign that happened during Obama’s presidency.

WATCH:

A new report from this week highlighted numerous negative things that Obama and Obama officials allegedly said about Biden and his run for the nation’s highest office.

The Daily Wire reported:

“One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, ‘Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*** things up,’” Politico reported. “Speaking of his own waning understanding of today’s Democratic electorate, especially in Iowa, Obama told one 2020 candidate: ‘And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.’”

The New York Times reported last year that Obama told Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.”

Obama also reportedly summoned a meeting with top officials from the Biden campaign where he told them that they needed to make sure that Biden did not “embarrass himself” or “damage his legacy” during the campaign.

CNN’s Jake Tapper reported last year that a senior Obama-Biden official told him, “Biden’s strength has never been his clarity of message or his delivery. But watching his long, winding answers that don’t really make sense in recent debates has also raised the question as to whether that has gotten worse and whether he is up for this.”

This report has been updated to include additional information.
