The question was, "It turns out his organisation seems to do a lot of these organising to some of the protests that these Republicans are seeing around the country against you. Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents' code?"
Trump responded, “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, you know, some of the leaks – which are very serious leaks, because they’re very bad in terms of national security.”
After accusing POTUS 44 and his former aides, Trump added, "I also understand that's politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that's politics. And it will probably continue."
However, there's no evidence that Obama or his former staffers have been involved with any of the leaks coming from within the Trump administration, or that he has helped stage any protests against GOP lawmakers during their town halls.
In fact, right after the election the former president underscored the importance of a peaceful transition of power and also said he would give Trump "room to govern." And as soon as Trump was sworn in, Obama took off on a long vacation.
It remains unclear why Trump believes that his predecessor would have any interest in influencing his administration in such a calculated, coordinated way.
