Nothing is going to stop Donald Trump from holding large scale rallies, even the Coronavirus. Last night’s event in Henderson, Nevada, was the President’s first indoor rally since his disastrous Tulsa, Oklahoma event in June of 2020.
Encouraged by the raucous crowd, Trump took the opportunity to trash all his political opponents. This includes the 44th President who the President accused of spying on his campaign. After making this accusation, the fans in the crowd began to chant “lock him up.”
Trump told the attendees that Obama, “got caught spying on my campaign. He got caught. We caught him cold, we have him cold. Now let’s see what happens.” The crowd then began their chant.

Of course, there is absolutely no evidence of any of Trump’s claims against either Barack Obama or Joe Biden. In December, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz was questioned before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
When asked if there was any evidence that Obama asked for an investigation into Trump, he replied, “We certainly didn’t see any evidence of that in the FBI’s files or the department’s files.”
Obama has also denied any claims of wrongdoing. In March of 2017, his spokesperson, Kevin Lewis, said, “Neither Barack Obama nor any WH official under Obama has ever ordered surveillance on any US Citizen. Any suggestion is unequivocally false.”
