( CNN) United States President Donald Trump has actually taken a swipe at the previous Obama management, showing it was “also soft” on Russia over its addition of Crimea.

Under raising stress over his management’s partnership with Russia, President Trump talked about Twitter Wednesday that the Crimea peninsula was “taken” by Russia from Ukraine under the Obama management.

Theremarks note a sharp U-turn for Trump, that had actually formerly buoyed the Kremlin’s insurance claim on Crimea.
