Obama is refusing to stand back and watch Trump destroy “his legacy.” Instead he’s planning to retaliate against Trump’s positions. With the current political climate, this could be dangerous. Obama’s voters are already rioting in the street, vandalizing stores and banks. If Obama attacks President Trump it could start a more dangerous conflict. More and more it’s feeling like the Left wants a second civil war. They just need to remember that the Democrats already lost the original Civil War, and they’d lose this one too.
Obama isn’t President any more and it’s time for him to remember that.
According to Fox News:
The statement was from a spokesman, and it did not attack Trump directly. Rather it appealed to protesters.
“President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president, said in a statement. “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”
Obama and his team are not ruling out a forceful challenge to Trump in the coming months, Politico, citing people in contact with the former president, reported.
There is debate on how to approach a Trump attack. There is fear that if Obama comes out too early against Trump it could lessen the effectiveness of the message. His team reportedly does not want Obama to be the face of the anti-Trump protests.
“I wouldn’t be opposed if he spoke out,” Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., told Politico. “I just don’t know what effect it would be.”
He continued, “In hindsight, I believe it was wrong for Barack Obama to normalize Donald Trump,” he said.
Sources told the magazine that Obama is likely saving a more assertive challenge because “knows he only gets one change at it being the first time that he takes on Trump himself.”
