Looks Like The Obama’s Just Couldn’t Keep their Mouths Shut as they Tweet Rebukes Against Trump
Mainly it’s custom that previous presidents normally don’t make public statements where they criticize sitting presidents, but it seems former President Barack Obama and his first lady Michelle just could not keep their mouths shut.
Obama’s tweets were meant to be in response to President Donald Trump’s statements/tweets about on the poorest parts of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., district in Baltimore came via Twitter.
I’ve always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I’m proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that’s better. https://t.co/0cfDltjueP

Don’t you just wish previous Presidents would just retire… though I have to admit after 2024 I personally hope remains a thorn in Democrats sides.

Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., faces a challenge for re-election from a 30-year-old Massachusetts mayor campaigning on the House Ways and Means Committee chairman’s inaction on obtaining President Donald Trump’s tax returns, NBC News reported. “So, when you look at the timing here, we’re now very unlikely to see any result before the 2020 election, because Congressman Neal dragged his feet. We also have people in New York that have worked tirelessly to give the American people access to his New York state tax returns.” “I think his action is emblematic of a kind of leader, or lack thereof, that’s he’s been over the last 30 years,” Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse told NBC News about Neal’s authority to obtain President Trump’s state returns. Rep. Neal has held off using the New York state law to obtain his state tax returns because it might jeopardize the ability to obtain federal returns, according to the report. President Trump filed a federal lawsuit this week to block Rep. Neal from using the state law to obtain the federal return. “I know people here in western Massachusetts, and people around the country, are frustrated with the way in which he’s handled this issue from day one. I mean, Democrats took back the House, and it took [months] to put a letter together. I know it doesn’t take us that long to put letters together at City Hall when we have to look at legal issues. “It’s unfortunate that there are folks who aren’t living what he’s living, making statements and comments and Monday morning quarterbacking the situation,” a source told NBC News of Rep. Neal.
Billionaire Tom Steyer, a former hedge fund manager, wants to “break the corrupt stranglehold that corporations have on our government” and take on President Donald Trump in 2020.
“To me the biggest question facing the United States is not what we should do, but how are we going to break the corrupt stranglehold that corporations have on our government,” Steyer said.
He added: “For the last 10 years, I’ve been trying to push power back to the people of the United States.
Steyer, who will reportedly spend $100 million of his own funds on his campaign, said his candidacy is “not about the money.” He maintained it is aimed at “trying to retake the government.”
“This is about retaking the democracy from the corrupt corporate power that is determining what happens in Washington, D.C.”
Meanwhile, Steyer’s campaign to impeach Trump will continue under new leadership during his presidential bid.
