Trump can not get in the White House soon enough. Obama might just do more damage than anyone can within his last couple of days in office… now that he hasn’t been golfing so much.
Donald Trump accused Barack Obama on Wednesday of throwing up ‘roadblocks’ and making ‘inflammatory statements’ on his way out of the White House, and urged Israel to ‘stay strong’ in the face of ‘disdain and disrespect’ from the outgoing president.
Obama angered his successor by ordering his United Nations ambassador to sit out a vote condemning Israel instead of vetoing it.
Israelis leaders say Obama himself engineered the vote as a parting shot at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who he has sparred with for years.
Obama’s own former Middle East peace envoy, former Sen. George Mitchell, said Tuesday that the president should have either vetoed the UN resolution or delayed it so Trump could set his own Israel policy.
Obama also threw a thinly veiled hardball at Trump on Tuesday, saying at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii that ‘even when hatred burns hottest, even when the tug of tribalism is at its most primal, we must resist the urge to turn inward, we must resist the urge to demonize those who are different.’
Trump jabbed back on Twitter.
