Mr Obama has no intention of honouring the tradition

In November, President Barack Obama reminded President-elect Donald Trump that “there’s only one president at a time” and that he should be careful not to overstep his bounds before the formal transfer of power.

However, in Mr. Obama’s final address to the country, he made it clear he won’t retire after Jan. 20 — rebuking his own reprimand and years of studied silence of past presidents.

“As I prepare to take on the even more important role of citizen, know that I will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that this country forever strives to live up to the incredible promise of our founding — that all of us are created equal, and all of us deserve every chance to live out our dreams,” Mr. Obama said in his final radio address on Dec. 31.

Mr. Obama plans to live in Washington, D.C., until his youngest daughter Sasha, finishes high school. And you can be sure he’ll keep an eye on the GOP-controlled Congress and White House, which won on promises to largely undo his legacy.

Unlike former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, who largely vanished from the public spotlight after their presidencies, Mr. Obama has assured his base he plans on being a thorn in the side of Mr. Trump. Full Story

Barack Obama is done holding back.

The former president unloaded on President Trump — by name — and Republicans in Congress during a blistering speech at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on Friday, urging students in the audience to vote in an election he called a turning point.

“It did not start with Donald Trump,” Obama said. “He is a symptom, not the cause.” But he went on to criticize Trump and Republicans in Congress at length, calling out cosiness with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Trump’s tweets about the Justice Department investigating Republicans, the president’s reluctance to criticize Nazi sympathizers after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and more.

“Republicans who know better in Congress — and they’re there, they’re quoted saying, Yeah, we know this is kind of crazy — are still bending over backwards to shield this behaviour from scrutiny or accountability,” he said. Full Story
