You probably know that the Obama family are planning on staying in Washington DC now that he is no longer president. They want to continue inserting themselves into governmental affairs. Trump has now changed this.
In a move that reportedly sent Obama storming away from the Oval Office where he was on the phone with the President-Elect, Trump informed him that he was taking steps to remove Obama’s influence from post-Obama government.
A Trump aide who was in the room who asked to remain anonymous, said that Obama began screaming when Trump told him, “I’m sorry, but I made a promise and I intend to keep it.” The promise was to keep people from former administrations from lobbying or interfering with government for a period of five years after their term is up. Obama apparently flipped out when Trump told him:
“That will include you, Mr. President. I will be adding POTUS, V-POTUS and the entire First Family to the language. You’re welcome to stay in DC, but if you try to impede the work the American people elected me to do you’ll go to jail.”
It didn’t take long for the Obamas to then announce they were buying a house in California.
What are your thoughts on this?
