Full respect to the Obamas
UNITED STATES PRESIDENT Donald Trump must be wishing and hoping that 2019 will be a better year for him and his presidency.
He has spent almost the entire period since taking up office in
2017 trying to systematically erase everything that his predecessor
Barack Obama achieved.
It seems as if Trump and many of his base despise the idea of a black man having been a very successful president.
Trump’s attempts at dismantling the Obama era have been clear, be it affordable health care, protection of the “dreamers”, the Paris Climate Accord or the Iran nuclear deal. Thankfully, things aren’t working for Trump.
His administration has been beset by controversies and scandals. Perhaps one of the most distressing things has been the rise of racial hatred inspired by the right-wing nationalists who form his bedrock support.
Under Obama there was great respect for America and he was welcomed and praised, whether in London or Toronto, Munich or Havana. Under Trump, there has been protest on every continent against him personally and his policies.
What must have Trump hurting is to see that the polls have found Barack and Michelle Obama to be the most admired man and woman in the United States, and indeed that nation’s top power couple. The Obamas have shown that there’s life after the
with a high level of respect and decency.
Wow. The Obamas have been excellent role models.
