WASHINGTON, D.C. (KGTV) -- In a Sunday morning tweet, President Trump demanded that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the Trump campaign was "infiltrated or surveilled."

Trump said that he will officially demand that the DOJ look into the alleged program Monday. 

Trump said he will also ask that the department look into whether “…such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”

The tweet was one of many sent out by Trump Sunday morning. In another tweet, the President once again referred to the Russia investigation as a “witch hunt" and implied that the probe is running out of steam.
