During his interview with George Snuffleupagus, President Trump said that former President Barack Obama "had to know" what he believes was a setup to keep him from winning the 2016 election. 

"There was no crime. There was no collusion. The big thing's collusion," Trump said. "Now there's no collusion. That means they set — it was a setup, in my opinion, and I think it's gonna come out."

Stephanopoulos then asked, "You clearly believe there was a group of people working against you. Do you think President Obama was behind it?"

"I would say that he certainly must have known about it because it went very high up in the chain, but you're gonna find that out. I'm not gonna make that statement quite yet, but I would say that President Obama had to know about it," Trump replied.
