This news is gonna make a lot of people happy. And that is Barack Obama and his aides expected a showdown of sorts with President Donald Trump at some point, but (surprise!) they didn’t think it would happen this quickly, according to a report from Politico.
Now they’re trying to find the right balance on issues that demand a response, and how to use Obama to deliver the selective push-back. Obama and his team are monitoring what’s happening at the White House, and not ruling out the possibility that Obama will challenge Trump more forcefully in the coming months, according to people who’ve been in contact with the former president.
It depends on Trump. It also depends, the people close to the former president said Monday, on whether speaking out would just set him up to have no effect and be dismissed, and result in empowering Trump more, which is a very real worry for them.
You can best believe that the ex-President is keeping on top of things while he’s posted up at his vacation spot on private island in the Caribbean.
