[Ed. – ‘Trump hasn’t shied away from blasting decisions Obama made during his tenure.’ Can CNN seriously have forgotten Obama’s nonstop Bush-bashing for most of his first term?]
Ties between presidents — if not always friendly — are usually at least existent. That Trump and Obama have avoided each other speaks to the unprecedented nature of the current White House, and the lingering animosity between two men who openly sparred during 2016’s presidential campaign.
Trump hasn’t shied away from blasting decisions Obama made during his tenure, and has steadily chipped away at key pieces of Obama’s legacy like the Paris climate accord and the Affordable Care Act. He’s also launched personal attacks, falsely claiming that Obama ordered the phones tapped at Trump Tower or that Obama failed to call family members of slain US servicemen.
