Both former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slammed President Donald Trump last week, marking the earliest time a former president attacked a sitting president in recent political history.
Obama slammed Trump for pulling the U.S. out of the Paris agreement on climate change Thursday, calling the new administration an “absence of American leadership.”
“But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got,” Obama said Thursday according to The Hill.
Clinton joined the former president in attacking the current president. She asserted that Trump’s proposed budget cuts were an “unimaginable cruelty” to the American people before claiming that the 45th president was an authoritarian dictator.
