Following the defeat of former President Barack Obama’s enemy turned ally Hillary Clinton in November, many people were left wondering what Obama would be up to once he departed the White House.
Many people hoped that he would follow former President George W. Bush’s footsteps and withdraw from political involvement, taking the high road so that the current President could run our democracy without the interference of the previous leader. It’s now becoming very apparent how active Obama plans on remaining, by running a secretive organization.
Political insider Paul Sperry uncovered Obama’s group “Organizing for Action” and pinpointed its headquarters, less than two miles from Trump in the White House. Stated Sperry, “Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy, it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.”
Continued Paul, “Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory.” He added, “Far from sulking, OFA activists helped organize anti-Trump marches across US cities, some of which turned into riots. After Trump issued a temporary ban on immigration from seven terror-prone Muslim nations, the demonstrators jammed airports, chanting: ‘No ban, no wall, sanctuary for all!'”
Detailed Sperry, “Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.” Do you think Trump should take action against Obama for doing this?
