Big Brother! President Obama warns Trump that he 'will be watching' and will step in if Trump goes out of line
Outgoing President, Barrack Obama, who had
earlier said he was going to take some quiet
time off and even do some writing after he
steps down, has now issued a warning to
Trump, letting him know 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.
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.
also spoke on Trump's promise to deport illegal
immigrants and warned him about 'rounding up'
children for deportation.
"And for me, at least, I would put in that
category efforts to round up 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
think would be something that would merit me
speaking out." Obama said.
As president, Obama had actions in place to
protect these immigrants but Trump has
threatened to undo those actions when he
Obama also touched on the issue of Trump's
continuous bashing of the 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
"Having you in this building has made this place
work better, it keeps us honest ... it makes us
work harder,' he said."
Obama concluded by stating 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."
