President Donald Trump suggested Saturday that the FBI failed to stop the Florida school shooting because it's spending too much time on the Russia investigation.

In one of many Russia-related tweets this weekend, Trump said: "Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign."

On Friday, the FBI admitted it failed to investigate a tip about the Parkland, Florida, shooter in January. 

Trump's tweet also comes after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Trump also tweeted Sunday that the investigations into Russian meddling are creating chaos and divisions in the U.S. He said, "They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!"
