WASHINGTON -- In a series of tweets Monday, President Donald Trump criticized Democrats for their inquiries into his administration, and called for a shift in focus to former President Barack Obama's business moves.
Instead of investigating reports suggesting that Trump is using his presidency to enrich his businesses, Democrats should look at Obama's book and Netflix deals, the president said.
"I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal," Trump tweeted.
They also secured book deals worth $60 million each, according to reports. Michelle Obama's book "Becoming" was published last year and quickly became a best seller.
....for the privilege of being your President - and doing the best job that has been done in many decades. I am far beyond somebody paying for a hotel room for the evening, or filling up a gas tank at an airport I do not own. These Radical Left Democrats are CRAZY! Obama Netflix?
