This weekend Donald Trump signed an executive order to refuse refugees from seven terrorist states.
Obama rushed to release a dishonest statement on Trump’s plan.
Well, that didn’t long.
Former President Barack Obama said just before leaving office that he wanted to give the new administration space — unless President Donald Trump took some sort of extreme action.
“But there’s a difference between that normal functioning of politics and certain issues or certain moments where I think our core values may be at stake,” Obama said at his final news conference as president.
It took all of 10 days for Obama to decide that criterion had been met by Trump’s executive order suspending the Syrian refugee programs and temporarily blocking other refugees and freezing travel from seven high-risk countries.
“President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” his spokesman, Kevin Lewis, said in a statement. “In his final official speech as president, he spoke about the important role of citizen and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy — not just during an election but every day.”
