Everyone is blaming Trump, but it seems to me the first salvo was launched by Obama, who expressed his support for protests around the country designed to undermine Trump. Anyway, Obama was never serious about working to help Trump. That was all for PR, so that eventually he could seem to be the good guy and say, “Well, I tried.”
The relationship between President Trump and former President Barack Obama is basically nonexistent after Trump accused Obama of wiretapping his home and office during the election, angering the former president.
The Wall Street Journal reported Obama is livid at Trump following his weekend tweets accusing the former president of ordering an illegal wiretap. Obama saw those tweets as beneath the office of the presidency.
Obama also irked Trump by not returning a phone call Trump made to Obama to thank him for the letter he left for the new president in the Resolute Desk following Trump’s inauguration, per presidential tradition.
On Jan. 30, Obama expressed support for anti-Trump protests, saying “citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”
