Trump: Obama Not Leading Resistance

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

By    |   Sunday, 25 Jun 2017 02:49 PM

In a rare twist, President Donald Trump passed on an opportunity Sunday to denounce former President Barack Obama as a leader of the "resistance," despite a Facebook post Thursday which criticized the Senate GOP healthcare bill.

"I don't think he's leading it," Trump told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" about claims Obama is the leader of the resistance, a political no-no in the long U.S. tradition of a peaceful transition of power.

"He actually just put out a small statement. I don't see that leading it. But other people are leading."

President Trump lamented the fact even if the GOP proposed a healthcare bill considered "the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote [from a Democrat]."

"But that's called the resistance – that's a terrible word," Trump told Fox News. "Think of it. Their theme is resist. Their theme should be, let's get together, envelop. Let's get together. But their theme is resist."

Trump added "I happen to like it," because voters see through it and side with him in the way he is running his office.

"One of the things that should be solved, but it probably won't be, is that the Republicans and Democrats don't get together," Trump said. "They fight each other. The level of hostility. In other words, this isn't just Trump, this has been like this for years."
