During an excerpt from a new interview between President Donald Trump and “Fox and Friends'” host Ainsley Earhardt, the President discussed his perception of a “massive” campaign finance violation committed by former President Barack Obama’s campaign that, as he lamented, was handled “differently.”

“He had a different attorney general, and they viewed it a lot differently,” Trump said, raising eyebrows on whether he blames his favorite punching bag, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for the campaign finance charges against Michael Cohen.
