After many months of allegations about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, President Trump on Tuesday is now worried about Russia trying to impact the upcoming election.

“I’m very concerned that Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election,” Trump said on Twitter Tuesday.

“Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats. They definitely don’t want Trump!” he concluded.

Trump did not specify if he was referring to the 2018 midterm elections or the next presidential race in 2020.

“This is jamming it where the sun don’t shine into everybody in the Drive-By Media and the Democrat Party,” said radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. “They’re gonna blow gaskets. … This is politically brilliant. Privately these people on the left will have conniptions. It literally drives them crazy.”

“He’s just turning it right around on ’em, instead of slinking away and acting exposed or guilty or defensive and trying to sue for peace, he’s just turning it right around on ’em and in advance. He’s accusing them of benefiting from Russian attempts to hurt him by electing them.”

“So Trump is stealing their thunder. Some might say getting in on it. … This is exactly the kind of thing I would do just to tweak.”

Trump also tweeted out his slogan, saying in all capital letters: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

The president also noted: “Our Country is doing GREAT. Best financial numbers on the Planet. Great to have USA WINNING AGAIN!”
