President-elect Donald Trump criticized President Obama early Wednesday for making "inflammatory" statements during the transition period.
"Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks.Thought it was going to be a smooth transition - NOT!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Obama said Monday on a CNN podcast that if he had been able to run for reelection again this year, he would have won.
Trump has responded on Twitter numerous times in recent days, writing one that there's "NO WAY" Obama would have beaten him and later adding that the president "campaigned hard (and personally) in the very important swing states, and lost."
Trump and Obama maintained an open line of communication after the election, and the two spoke "a handful" of times in November, the White House said at the time.
