President Trump RESPONDS to Former President Obama's Criticism

Former President Obama issued a statement over the weekend following the recent mass shootings that contained veiled criticism of President Trump.

In true Trump fashion, he responded strongly to the former president with a "friendly" reminder.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Tuesday morning addressed former President Obama's statement about the mass shootings last weekend, tweeting a quote from "Fox & Friends" co-anchor Brian Kilmeade criticizing the former president's response to mass shootings during his presidency.

Trump tweeted the quote shortly after Kilmeade expressed dismay with Obama's statements regarding the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend that left at least 32 people dead.

 

...

In the wake of the shootings, Obama on Monday issued a lengthy statement urging Americans to reject leaders who feed "a climate of fear and hatred."

“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred and normalizes racist sentiment," he said. "Leaders who demonize those who don't look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people."

Former President Obama didn't mention Trump by name, but it is not hard to read between the lines as to who he was referring to.
