WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is pointing to conspiracies in the challenges facing his administration.

In a tweet Wednesday, Trump alleges that "much of the bad blood with Russia" is caused by what he charges is the "Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people" who worked for President Barack Obama. He again claims that there has been no collusion with Russians.

Trump also turned to Twitter to lace into Russia for supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose government is accused of launching an apparent chemical attack Saturday on its own people. While in the past Trump has insisted he would never tip his hand to military strategy, he seemed to suggest that he would launch airstrikes.
