Former President Barack Obama's closest confidant Valerie Jarrett has moved in with the Obamas in their Washington, D.C. home and will reportedly help Obama oppose President Donald Trump.
According to The Daily Mail, Jarrett — who lived with the Obamas in the White House during his eight-year presidency — moved her belongings to the Obamas' new home in the Kalorama section of Washington after he left office in January. The pair reportedly wants to help lead a charge to have Trump impeached or force him to resign.
Trump has begun dismantling Obama's White House legacy, including the rollback of a federal transgender bathroom directive in public schools. Trump and Republicans are working on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, Obama's signature healthcare law he signed in 2010.
The Daily Mail cites a friend of the Obama family who said the former president is ready to lead the opposition movement against Trump just two miles from the White House.
Jarrett lived with the Obamas in the White House as if she was a member of the family, even having meals with them. She's now living with the family in their 8,200-square-foot rental home that's valued at $5.3 million.
"There was never any doubt that Valerie would have a suite of rooms in the house that the Obama's are renting," the source told the Daily Mail. "Obama trusts her judgment more than any other person on the planet, as does Michelle.
"Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy — Obamacare, the social safety net, and the welcome mat for refugees he put in place."
During an interview with Fox News that aired earlier this week, Trump admitted he believes Obama is behind some of the opposition to his presidency.
"Well, you never know exactly what's happening behind the scenes," Trump said. "But I think President Obama's behind it, becauseFormer President Barack Obama's closest confidant Valerie Jarrett has moved in with the Obamas in their Washington, D.C. home and will reportedly help Obama oppose President Donald Trump. his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group."
