It isn’t a secret that Obama supported Hillary Clinton during the election. However, Obama indicated he was willing to work with Trump after he won the election — or so he said.
Somebody Popping Off
The 44th President told reporters that he wouldn’t criticize Trump when he becomes president in January. “I want to be respectful of the office and give the President-elect an opportunity to put forward his platform and his arguments without somebody popping off in every instance,” Obama told reporters.
Even though Obama and Trump were critical of each other during the campaign, they’ve both made statements saying they are willing to work together now, to make America great again.
But Obama recently mentioned that he won’t remain silent if Trump’s administration attacks American values. “As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal, but go to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it is necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, I’ll examine it when it comes,” Obama said to reporters.
Trump Will “Leave Business Life in the Past” As President
Trump isn’t your typical president. He wasn’t a politician before he got elected, but he was, and still is, a successful businessman. His mission to make America great again is far more important to him than money, and that’s exactly why he is willing to leave his business life in the past.
According to Mike Pence, the incoming Vice-President, Trump won’t use his political position for personal gains. Pence said, “I can assure you and all of your viewers, that all of the laws pertaining to his business dealings and his service as president of the United States, will be strictly adhered to,” Pence said.
Trump handing control of his business to his adult children, and focusing on politics instead. How refreshing to have a leader actually committed to leading — much like our founding fathers envisioned and exemplified.
