Barrack Obama, the Outgoing President of the United States of America,who had earlier decided to
take some quiet time off and even do some writing after he steps down,
has made it known to Donald Trump, that he will not be
silent if he notices Trump’s policies and actions as president goes
against certain core values and infringes on human rights.
Here’s what he said:
Obama made this known during his final press conference on Friday.
Some of the issues he brought up which could cause him to step out of
the sidelines include; systemic discrimination, effort to silence
dissent or the press and efforts to roll back voting rights. He also
spoke on Trump’s promise to deport illegal immigrants and warned him
about ’rounding up’ children for deportation.
kids who have grown up here and for all practical purposes are American
kids, and send them someplace else, when they love this country, they
are our kids’ friends and their classmates and are now entering into
community colleges or in some cases serving in our military …”
“The notion that we would just arbitrarily, or because of politics,
punish those kids, when they didn’t do anything wrong themselves, I

press, CNN especially, and the threat from his press team to kick
reporters out of the white house, saying that the press is what keeps
them honest and accountable.
“Having you in this building has made this place work better, it keeps us honest … it makes us work harder,’ he said.”
Obama finally stated the possibilities that could result from
being accepting of people and keeping opportunities open to everybody.
“If in fact we continue to keep opportunity open to everybody, then,
yeah, we’re going to have a woman president, we’re going to have a
Latino president, we’re going to have a Jewish president, a Hindu
president,’ Obama said. ‘You know, who knows who we’re going to have?”
“I suspect we’ll have a whole bunch of mixed-up presidents at some
point, that nobody really knows what to call them. And that’s fine.”
