President Trump and House of Representatives Minority Whip, Steve Scalise (R-LA) pushed back at former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday after an interview he did on CNN that aired on Friday.

Biden claimed that Russian meddling did not happen on his or former President Barack Obama’s watch, despite years of media scrutiny over Russian interference in the 2016 election, which would have taken place while he and Obama were in office.

“Look at what’s happening with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin… while Putin is trying to undo our elections, he is undoing elections in Europe. Look what’s happened in Hungary. Look what’s happened in Poland. Look what’s happened in Moldova,” Biden said.

“You think that would happen on my watch or Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise you it wouldn’t have, and it didn’t,” he claimed. [Emphasized]

Biden’s references to the Eastern European countries come after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged countries in Central and Eastern Europe to resist Chinese and Russian influence during a speech in Warsaw, Poland, on Feb. 12, reported Daily Caller.

Scalise wrote, “Joe Biden claims Russian election interference wouldn’t have happened on his watch or Obama’s watch. Seriously, Joe?? It DID happen on your watch and Obama’s watch!! Let’s walk down memory lane…”

Then, he posted an article from CBS and wrote, “Russian interference in America’s elections happened on Obama and Biden’s watch. That’s irrefutable. Even CBS News admitted Obama knew about Russian meddling.”

The House Whip posted a video of former President Barack Obama whispering to Medvedev and asked, “Has Joe Biden forgotten about how weak the Obama administration was on Russia? Like when Barack Obama himself told Russia “after my election, I have more flexibility” on missile defense when he thought no one could hear him?” (Continued Below)

Next, Scalise wondered, “Did Joe Biden forget about Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offering a “reset” with Russia, undermining our national security?”

Scalise concluded by posting a video of Sen. Mitt Romney and asked, “Did Joe Biden forget about when he and Obama, along with many other Democrats and the liberal media, mocked Mitt Romney for taking the threat of Russia seriously?”

President Trump also wrote on Twitter Saturday, “Joe Biden is a reclamation project. Some things are just not salvageable.”

He added, “China and other countries that ripped us off for years are begging for him. He deserted our military, our law enforcement and our healthcare. Added more debt than all other Presidents combined. Won’t win!” (Video Below)
