Obama Makes Statement, Encourages Protests [READ STATEMENT]

HERE IS OBAMA’S STATEMENT – Pres. Obama “is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” spokesman says.

Obama, who has remained publicly silent about his successor since leaving office a week-and-a-half ago, pledged before leaving office to only speak about Trump’s policy moves “where I think our core values may be at stake.” On Monday his spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement, “With regard to comparisons to President Obama’s foreign policy decisions, as we’ve heard before, the President fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion.”

Alluding to the widespread protests taking place in major airports and cities in response to the new immigration policy, Lewis said that Obama “is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country.”
