Obama Slams Trump on Policy He Wasn’t Very Successful At

Former President Barack Obama slammed President Trump on foreign policy despite Trump’s successes and Obama’s numerous failures.

One example is ISIS proliferated while Obama was in office and was decimated swiftly by Trump.

According to The Daily Wire:

Speaking on the leftist podcast “Pod Save America” on Wednesday, former President Barack Obama, whose disastrous efforts with foreign policy included supporting the tyrannical Iranian regime, the largest terrorist-supporting government on earth; championing the dangerous Iran nuclear deal; withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq in late 2011, leading to the rise of ISIS; ousting Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi, thus paving the way for anarchy and ISIS to gain a foothold there, and conducting a “reset” with Russia while Russian military gained ground  in eastern Ukraine, among other failures, slammed President Trump on foreign policy, snapping, “He doesn’t have the patience and the focus to really substantially change a lot of U.S. foreign policy.”

Just this week, Lebanon, an arch-foe of Israel, started talking to Israel; they “kicked off their first negotiations in 30 years on nonsecurity issues,” The New York Times noted. That follows the series of Arab countries starting to make peace with Israel, including the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Obama was prompted by host Tommy Vietor, who asked, “You spent countless hours with Vice President Biden talking about national security. What did you learn about how he thinks about diplomacy and counterterrorism and the use of military force that others would not have seen?”

According to Breitbart, Obama answered:

Well, a couple of things. One, and I think this is most important, is when people ask me what surprised me most about the presidency, you know, what I always tell them is: I understood but didn’t fully appreciate the degree to which we kind of underwrite the international order. And in the sense that even our enemies can expect us to behave like adults on the international stage. You know, if there’s a crisis somewhere, people don’t call Moscow or Beijing. They call us and say, “What are we going to do to help?” If there is ethnic cleansing, if there is a conflict, if there is a natural disaster. And the reason that we can serve in that role, even if we’re not perfect, is that we have the infrastructure. We have experienced diplomats. We have institutional traditions that allow us to show leadership on the international stage — whether it’s in the Paris Peace Accords, whether it’s on the Iran Deal, you name it.”

“The thing that over the last four years, it’s not as if Trump has been all that active internationally,” Obama said pompously. “I mean, the truth is he doesn’t have the patience and the focus to really substantially change a lot of U.S. foreign policy. What he’s done is he’s systematically tried to decimate our entire foreign policy infrastructure. And the thing I know about Joe is that he respects people who know history and have expertise, and he’s going to pay attention to somebody who has worked in Africa to find out, like, ‘how should I deal with a particular crisis there’ as opposed to calling it a bunch of I won’t say the word countries, right? He has a respect and understanding for what American leadership can do.”

Nile Gardiner, a former aide to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, said at the very end of Obama’s presidency that his Middle East policy was a failure, stating, “President Obama’s approach was extraordinarily naive in the Middle East. He also failed to combine his optimism with any hard power. That really enabled a number of very dangerous actors to emerge and to threaten directly the United States and its allies. It isn’t very clear that the Obama White House has any real strategy for eradicating ISIS. It’s a containment strategy; it’s not one of victory,” as The Washington Times reported.

This shouldn’t be surprising, Obama’s lack of foreign policy instincts have followed him post-presidency.

0bama didn’t fail. His “failures” were all part of the plan to “fundamentally transform America” as devised by 0bama and soros. We are witnessing his community-organizer based attempts in the form of blm and antifa.
Trump has done a great job of cleaning up this mess. He really needs 4 more to complete the job. Vote Trump To Save America!!!

If he had any decency he would go crawl in a hole. We Americans know the truth about his presidency and about Hunter and Joe Biden riding the Dragon with China Thanks to President Trump exposing all their failed policies and corruption. His administration opened the door to failure, corruption and wars and poverty.

Now the fact being it was Bush who signed the status of agreement with Iraq to have the USA military except for a few thousand advisors out by a certain date. The other thing is that Trump had nothing to do with the demise of ISSI that was the Kurds who decimated them and then Trump turned his back on our allies and turned them over to the Turkey Military and the Kurds had to seek protection from the Russians who they are allied with now. Now as far as anything in Europe not one European leader trusts Trump about anything he says, and that so called Peace Agreement in the Middle East, now how can you have a peace agreement when there is no hostilities between the Countries, the agreement is more like an open trade agreement than a Peace Agreement, and along with that Trump has brought on more hostilities between Israel and Palestine with his approval of everything Israel does and his putting the US embassy in where the Capitol of Palestine was suppose to go., now how is that acting toward peace.

Actually, the second worst. Jimmy carter is still the worst. Obama/Biden gave it their best shot to be as bad as possible, but 18% interest rates and 12% unemployment still beat giving us ISIS and giving Russia Crimea when it comes to the worst president ever.

Obama was far worse. Carter screwed up but he never attempted the process of dismantling the foundations of our government that continued with the coup against Trump that started under Obama and continued by his loyalists after he left office. Obama flushed billions down the toilet and sold our country out all over the world on his hate America apology tour. He inflamed tensions in the Middle East and birthed ISIS. Gave billions back to IRAN in exchange for an empty promise.

Obamalama has a lot of nerve taking pot shots at ANYONE else. He was the worse President this Nation has ever seen or had to put up with. TWICE.!!!!! It was unbelievable that he was elected a second time. Talk about blindness. The people that voted for him the second time were BLIND as bats and didn’t even have the radar a bat has to find their way around. He needs to just fade away and take that horrible beast of a “wife” with him. She needs to shut her mouth and leave too. She was and is an embarrassment to this country. Both of them are. He practically gave our country away to our enemies, and she did and does hate America and all it stands for although they were able to steal millions from it. UGH. I’m sick of seeing them on television, as well as American soil.

The only “foreign policy” from the Obama administration was his “US Apology Tour” that went on for eight years. I just wonder if his “wife”, Michael, ever got jealous of the foreign asses he kissed over those eight years?
Donald Trump has flexed the American muscle worldwide and proudly proclaiming, “We’re Back”.

Trump deals with other nations on behalf of what’s good for the average American. Obama dealt with them on behalf of a self-absorbed foreigner who considered himself superior to the typical Ugly American. For these reasons, Trump is enormously popular and Obama was not.

If Trump loses this election, it will be for only one reason, voter fraud. For racial reasons, Obama was allowed to sit for two terms but has yet to find land on which to place his presidential library. Previous libraries have been welcomed the president’s home state.

If they make Washington DC the 51st State under the title “The State of Confusion” Obama could build his library there. I pray it never ever happens.

Jackson Park, which is where Obama’s want the library, is on the National Registry of Historic Places. The center would require roadways be moved, old growth trees removed as well as the loss of 20 acres recreational land in the park. City officials approved the site but multiple local and national historic preservation groups such as Protect Our Parks and the Illinois State Historical Preservation Office have come out against it.

This from the team (Obama/Biden) who gave the world ISIS, and gave Crimea to the Russians. Talk about colluding with Russia, giving them Crimea without giving the Ukrainians anything to resist the Russian onslaught was a huge gift that Obama/Biden gave to Putin.

Both Biden and Obama are dlusional. We have had 8 years under them of failures internationally and domestically. History will not be kind to either of them. Obama thinks kissing foreign rear ends is diplomacy and Biden thinks foreign achievement is how to enrich the whole family.. They both believe they were the ones that handed over a great economy to Trump.

I disagree! They are not dillusional! They KNOW exactly what they did — and didn’t do!! It takes Unmitigated GALL for Obama to claim that Trump has failed where he succeeded, when just the OPPOSITE it true and the WHOLE WORLD knows it!!! Obama was a charismatic speaker in the past, which is what got him into the White House in the first place! But the American people ( at least MOST of them ) have gotten wise to his lies and fast talk!!! His Presidency was a complete Disgrace to this country, as he and his wife still are!!!

Obama you better keep your mouth shut. You are a Soros bought candidate. Never trust a smooth talking idiot like you. You caused more racial discourse in this country than any President in history.. I should say you and Eric Holder. You were the worst president along with Jimmy Carter, that our country ever had. During your tenure your despicable acts and ideas were done behind closed doors. The only things we will remember about you, is when you got on an elevator and a white woman was on it and she grabbed her purse tight because you might rob her. …total BS. Also sending, in cash, millions of dollars to our enemy Iran. What side are you on? Everything you did was in private and everything you said was a lie. You are a disgraceful idiot. Now supporting another liar, crooked criminal and rapist like Joe Biden makes my skin crawl. Go back to one of your million plus houses and contemplate how you can get millions more from Soros and other elite criminals so that this way we can kick your ass in jail.

What would you expect from a communist, neighborhood rabble rouser? Obama was never presidential material, simply a front for billionaire anarchists who think it will be fun to watch the world go up in a mushroom shaped cloud because they will make more money covering the crisis in their “news” and selling electronic gizmos.
Thank God we still have men like President Trump who will use their success to help America, not destroy it. We all need to get involved and back him and Our Country.
