Former President Obama Responds to Trump's Immigration Ban

Barack Obama‘s spokesperson is speaking out to reveal what the former president thinks of President Donald Trump‘s immigration ban and the protests that have been happening around the country.

President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country. In his final official speech as President, he spoke about the important role of citizens and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy — not just during an election but every day,” the statement read.

“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,” the statement from spokesperson Kevin Lewis added.

“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,” he added.

    Trump thought bubble, “I admire the living day lights out of that man. I need to channel his coolness.”

    President Obama warned us when he said “don’t under estimate Trump.” Now I see he was really saying this a$$hole. He is a complete nut who refuse to admit any wrong doing or humble himself. Trump is a dangerous man in a very bad way.

    If you are going to break presidential tradition, butt in and encourage citizens to protest, also encourage them to do so lawfully and rebuke any criminality associated with the actions you are promoting.

    Barry, maybe you belong in a country like Germany since you falsely believe American values include illegal immigration, ISIS followers posing as refugees, the occasional suicide/mass murder attack, gang rapes, and Sharia no-go zones. Embarrassing. I wish I could say good riddance.

    Trump’s SIL is a Zionist. He is the one telling Trump what to do, Trump is too uninformed. His Zionist SIL is trying to turn America into ISrael.,

    Lol. I don’t see where Barack Obama said anything wrong. He said he would not remain silent about certain things. We ARE the guardians of our democracy.

    President Trump is thick as thieves with Jewish people… and it’s not about the Bible or Christianity. I’m sorry, evangelicals. It’s about money. Many highly educated, powerful, wealthy Jewish people. They are some of the people Trump deals with & admires a lot.

    I’m not surprised President Trump brought in the son-in-law, as he is the spouse of his golden child, the beautiful and lovely Ivanka.

    Where do you live? Do you live in a city or in some cornfield. If you live in some cornfield, guess what you are safe because no one wants to go there. Let the city people live along the Muslims, you stick to your daytime television and fast food feasts.

    Yes. I love that about Barack Obama. A cool head instead of a hot one.
