President Obama weighed in on Trump’s anti-Muslim travel ban this week, encouraging opponents of the ban to exercise their constitutional rights to protest. Now, President Obama and his team are looking at ways to resist Trump’s policies in a more holistic, organized and effective manner.
Reports Politico: “Barack Obama and his aides expected to take on President Donald Trump at some point, but they didn’t think it would happen this quickly. Now they’re trying to find the right balance on issues that demand a response, and how to use Obama deliver the selective pushback. 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.”
President Obama is arguably still the most important Democratic voice in the world. We urge him to use that voice, loudly and often.
