Thank You President Obama For Speaking Up About Muslim Ban
Thank you President Obama for criticizing Trump’s executive order curbing immigration and for backing protesters who have taken to the nation’s airports to express their displeasure with Trump’s action on Friday.
“With regard to comparisons to President Obama’s foreign policy decisions, as we’ve heard before the President fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion,” said Kevin Lewis, spokesman for the former president, in a statement.
Obama promised to speak up only when the foundational principles of this nation were being undermined. It was clear to all when Obama made that statement prior to leaving the White this nation was entering troubled times with Trump and would require grown-ups to speak. No other president leaving office has had to issue such a statement as no incoming president has had such a low character and lack of ability. Even Andrew Johnson, though a pitfall poor leader, at least had a few weeks of being a vice-president.
“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,” Lewis said.
