Could this guy get any less presidential?
Rather than use his time in front of the United Nations to promote American exceptionalism, President Barack Hussein Obama instead wasted it talking trash about 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
“We see greater polarization, more frequent gridlock … movements on the far right, and sometimes the left, that insist on stopping the trade that binds our fates to other nations, calling for the building of walls to keep out immigrants,” Obama said in an address to the U.N. on Monday.
According to Breitbart, Trump is the only candidate thus far who has called for building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants. Furthermore, Trump has aligned himself with those Republicans who oppose Obama signing bad trade agreements with Asian nations like China and South Korea.
“Most ominously, we see the fears of ordinary people being exploited through appeals to sectarianism, or tribalism, or racism, or anti-Semitism; appeals to a glorious past before the body politic was infected by those who look different, or worship God differently; a politics of us versus them,” Obama continued.
This rhetoric fit in with the progressive belief that Trump’s stance against illegal immigration is rooted in xenophobia, which is false. Trump, as well as a majority of Americans, has opposed illegal immigration because it is an illegal violation of our national sovereignty.
Instead of complaining so much about Trump, perhaps Obama should shut up for a change and use his time to, say, read one of Trump’s books and perhaps learn a thing or two about being a real leader.
