Obama today is holding a series of meetings with foreign leaders at the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly.
As you may have noticed, since he’s in New York, where the Democratic money is, he’s also holding fundraisers, doing one yesterday and another today.
I can’t remember a president doing this at the opening session. At a moment when so many world leaders are on hand and there’s so many important opportunities to build contacts and conduct diplomacy, Obama is raising money.
He’s putting his own interests ahead of those of the United States. It’s wrong.
