It’s a favorite pastime of the left the compare our current Commander in Chief with his predecessor, Barack Hussain Obama. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t see how anyone in their right mind could think that President Trump is losing that battle. Even if you compare checking boxes next to the list of goals (assuming that Obama’s goals were ones worth achieving) you’d have to say that President Trump has done more in less time than Obama, hands down.
A new way to look at that is to see what danger President Obama put us in by sharing intel that should have been kept quiet. This is the very thing that the media desperately wants to pin on President Trump, though they have yet to actually show any evidence. The complaint is that he’s been sharing information with, you guessed it, the Russians. While those in the meeting where this supposedly took place have said that it didn’t happen, it apparently got people asking if Obama ever did anything similar.
Via The Federalists:
Just a month before the 2016 election, President Barack Obama signed a policy directive ordering the U.S. intelligence community to share sensitive U.S. intelligence with Cuba’s communist government, despite the fact that one of the top U.S. intelligence official had branded Cuba as one of America’s biggest espionage threats. The presidential policy directive, which was issued as part of the Obama administration’s efforts to normalize U.S. relations with the Castro regime, required the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to “exchange information on mutual threats with Cuban counterparts.”
“The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) will support broader United States Government efforts to normalize relations with Cuba, with Intelligence Community elements working to find opportunities for engagement on areas of common interest through which we could exchange information on mutual threats with Cuban counterparts,” the Obama directive stated.
On the other hand, this is what the National Security Advisor says about the meeting where President Trump supposedly spilled all of our national security secrets and gave away a key to the country to Russia.
Looks like one person ordered the critical information go out to crazy leaders and one is just being accused of it by an unknown source. Yeah, that seems like it’s the same thing.
