It has been a longstanding tradition that the former and current president of the United States work together for their love of country. Both men would put aside their differences and political ideology to focus on what is good for the American people and our future. However that is not the case when it comes to Barack Obama.
At the beginning of the year, Obama was cut back down to size and is now a regular citizen which has evidently not sat well with the egomaniac. For the past year, Obama has done his best to undermine Trump by taking jabs at him on everything from his policies to comparing him to Hitler. Not only has Obama been vocal about his disdain for President Trump but he also has set up residence just a few miles away from the White House.
Then to add further insult Obama has been traipsing around the world demeaning Trump, which happens to be a federal crime.
Over the past year, Obama has been doing all that he can to undermine President Trump’s administration, whether it was when Obama followed Trump overseas during his first trip as president or the G20 Summit meeting in Germany Obama has always been close behind.
Now, all of those are horrible offenses, but none could honestly be as bad as what Obama was just caught doing overseas over the past week.

Here is more from Bloomberg:
Obama opened his trip Tuesday in Shanghai, where he delivered a speech at an event hosted by business non-profit the Global Alliance of SMEs, which was attended by some 2,500 industry executives, according to the organization’s website. He stressed in his speech that China-U.S. relations were the most consequential bilateral ties in the world, and dialogue was the only way to solve disagreements, according to the Shanghai-based news website the Paper.
As part of the three-nation tour, he’ll also meet with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Obama’s office said in a news release Tuesday that the former president had “forged a close and cooperative partnership with President Xi on issues ranging from growing the global economy to combating climate change, and he looks forward to catching up with his former counterpart.”
Ok, here is where the issue lies with Obama chatting with President Xi.
Barack Obama is no longer an acting representative of the United States or holds an active role within the current administration, so he has no authority to discuss any matters with President Xi, but more importantly, it is against the law.
For Obama to insert himself into world affairs that he has no authority over any longer could cause serious issues, and he needs to stop it. However, that is not the Obama way since he has been seen traveling the world discussing policy without the proper clearance.
Earlier this month, Obama was in India and France slamming President Trump and peddling global warming that has hardly proven to be true.

Then during Obama’s trip to India, he openly mocked Trump saying that he has more Twitter fans than the president.“And look, I’ve got 100 million Twitter followers. I actually have more than other people who use it more often,” said Obama, followed by, “Think before you tweet.”
Shortly after that blatant disrespect, Obama slammed Trump again by undermining his policies and saying, “We have a temporary absence of American leadership’ on climate change.
“I grant you that at the moment we have a temporary absence of American leadership on the issue,” the former president noted, which was met with laughter from the room full of French former ministers and CEOs at the invite-only event, according to Reuters.
However, he noted, “you’re seeing American companies and states and cities continuing to work” to meet targets and stay on track.

Just so we are clear, this is a private citizen traveling the world speaking disparagingly about the president which goes against the Logan Act.
The Logan Act was implemented in 1799 to prevent citizens from like Obama from talking against the policy of the U.S. government. As of yet, no one has been charged in our nation’s history with a violation against the Logan Act, but Obama is so intent on leaving a legacy, this could be right up his alley.

It is horrific that Obama is traveling the world bashing the president of the United States without any repercussions, but it can be stopped. If those in Congress would move to hold Obama responsible and charge him for violation of the Logan Act, it will end this constant disrespect for our nation. By doing that, it will send a clear message to all those that seek to destroy the country and Trumps presidency by making an example of one of them.
And, Obama seems like the perfect candidate.
