President Donald Trump is getting really tired of Democrats investigating his businesses and, on Monday morning, he logged on to Twitter to complain about the investigations and suggested that they should look at Barack Obama’s Netflix deal instead.
The president wrote that the Democrats “failed on everything else, so now [they] are trying to build a case that I enrich myself by being president.” He went on to claim that he will lose “billions of dollars” while he leads the country.
And in a follow-up tweet, he doubled down on the stories that he’s enriching himself through his office, writing “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.”
Finally, the president threw something at the wall and hoped it would stick; closing his thread with the phrase “Obama Netflix?”
….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?

Netflix announced last year that they have signed a deal with Barack and Michelle Obama to produce a series of films.
And this isn’t the first time that Donald Trump has complained about his predecessor’s business moves (which are perfectly legal). He’s also said that lawmakers “could look into the book deal that President Obama made,” adding, “let’s subpoena all of his records.” Obama’s book doesn’t have a release date yet though it promises to be a best-seller — Michelle Obama’s book, “Becoming,” spent weeks at the top of the charts.
Trump has been under fire for the past few weeks after reports that military personnel were being sent to his resort in Scotland. Trump has insisted that he has nothing to do with the arrangement.
The House Oversight Committee has already announced that they are investigating the military stays at Trump’s Turnberry resort and the numerous instances of military aircraft refueling at the airport that services that resort.
