REPORT: President Obama to Campaign Against Donald Trump OVERSEAS
Remember when George W. Bush used his influence as president to campaign against Democrats who were running for president in 2008? Neither does anyone else, but that’s not stopping Obama.
Breitbart has the story:
Report: Obama To Campaign Overseas Against Donald Trump
President Barack Obama plans to campaign against Donald Trump’s pro-American 2016 campaign by rallying international opposition among foreigners, according to Politico.
“Going into next year, Obama will be speaking out against Trump, as he did indirectly in several pro-immigration speeches earlier this month… pushing back against Trump will be a central theme of Obama’s international engagement,” according to a Politico article.
“The nature of American politics is that all these statements are consumed around the world,” said deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes. “When there are statements that could present challenges in terms of perceptions of America’s openness to people of different faiths and America’s inclusiveness, the president is going to speak out on that.”
Democrats accused Bush of meddling in foreign affairs but they’ll have no problem with this.
