President-elect Donald Trump is either doing his "best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks" or he's getting along with the President just fine -- depends on the time of day. Not long after the Trump tweet that told his followers about the "inflammatory President O", Trump said that he and the President are getting "along well."
It's a situation that can flip back and forth swiftly. Trump is quick to outrage -- that's not a knock, it's part of his style. But a Politico report claims that Trump insiders say the President-elect even heard criticism of himself in Obama's recent speech calling on the world not to hate. In general, leaders publicly espouse the position that hatred is bad. But Obama reportedly cut too close to the bone when he said in a speech at Pearl Harbor this week 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." Politico reports that Trump insiders say that "felt to Trump like direct criticism of the president-elect."Most INTERESTING FINDS on Amazon]
