Apparently he does not realize that you have to have an actual legal reason to get a subpoena.

Hot under the collar about Democratic investigations after Robert Mueller’s testimony, President Donald Trump called to investigate President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and even complained about the air conditioning system his predecessor installed.
Speaking in the Oval Office Friday afternoon, he called to investigate President Obama’s lucrative book deal and the Clinton Foundation, and later in his remarks complained that Obama installed an air-conditioning system that was always ‘freezing or hot.’
Trump made his remarks as Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee acknowledged they were conducting an impeachment investigation and filed a new action to force the release of secret grand jury materials from the Mueller probe.
‘All they want to do is impede. They want to investigate. They want to go fishing. And I watched Bob Mueller, and they have nothing’ Trump fumed. ‘There’s no collusion there’s no obstruction they have nothing. It’s a disgrace,’ he said, contradicting
‘We want to find out what happened with the last Democrat president. Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked at me. From Day One they’ve looked into everything that they’ve done. They could look into the book deal that president Obama made. Let’s subpoena all of his records,’ Trump complained.
It appears that Trump is pissed off that the Obamas got a 65 million dollar book deal.
I think all a subpoena would prove is that people really want to read their books.
Trump also went right back to suggesting that Hillary Clinton had engaged in some kind of criminal behavior.
‘Let’s subpoena all of the records having to do with Hillary Clinton and all of the nonsense that went on with Clinton and her foundation and everything else. We could do that all day long,’ Trump continued on his tear.
Trump went on to suggest that the Republicans were more restrained while Obama was in office and did not engage in frivolous investigations, which is so laugh out loud funny that you almost cannot believe he actually said it.
At one point Trump even tried to blame Obama for his discomfort in the White House, suggesting that he had screwed up the air conditioning.
I would suggest that if Trump is uncomfortable in the White House it is because on some level he realizes he has no business living there.
