Trump melted down while speaking to reporters and demanded that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham investigate Obama.
Trump said, “Lindsey Graham would like to stay in the Middle East for the next thousand years with thousands of soldiers and fighting other people’s wars. I want to get out of the Middle East. I think Lindsey should focus on the judiciary like the do-nothing-Democrats. They are getting nothing done. They’re not getting anything done. They’re not getting USNA done between Canada and the United States between Mexico. I think Lindsey should focus on Judiciary. He ought to find out what happened with Comey. What happened with McCabe, what happened with Comey, what happened with Lisa and Peter Strzok and what happened with President Obama, what happened with Brennan. That’s what Lindsey ought to focus on. That what the people of South Carolina want him to focus on. The people of South Carolina don’t want us to get into a war with Turkey or Syria…Let them fight their own war.”

Lindsey Graham is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the president asked him to investigate former President Barack Obama. The people of South Carolina do not want an investigation into Obama. Donald Trump wants an investigation of Obama because it would take attention away from impeachment and give him something to use against Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
Trump is still looking for his 2020 version of Hillary’s emails that he can use to distract and hide his own behavior behind.
Donald Trump couldn’t handle questions about his call with Turkey and the Syria invasion during his press conference.
Trump is still litigating the 2016 election because he is trying to hide his impeachable offenses in 2020.
