A United States federal judge has said he will not immediately rule on the Justice Department's decision to dismiss its criminal case against former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn. What is your response to that? McConnell noted former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush "kept their mouths shut" on successors because they deemed it inappropriate to comment on other presidents. "I mean, you can't say President Obama told him to call [Sergey] Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, and discuss the sanctions regime for Russian interference".
"What we're fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy, that has become a stronger impulse in American life", Mr Obama said. "I think the tradition that the Bush's set up - of not critiquing the president who comes after you - is a good tradition".
"While marginalized communities struggle under Donald Trump's failed leadership and people of color face disproportionate consequences of COVID-19, Joe Biden will take no one for granted", Abrams said.
Donald Trump expressed his anger after a record of Barack Obama's phone conversation with members of the Obama Alumni Association was leaked where the former POTUS can be heard warning that "the rule of law is at risk", according to Independent.
There is a tradition of former presidents not commenting on or attacking their successors in the Oval Office, but Trump is not part of the informal club which now includes Obama, George W Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and he has regularly attacked those who went before him.
Tyson warns of coronavirus-related USA meat shortages as livestock plants shutdown
Iowa pork producers have warned that they will have to destroy pigs that they're unable to move to meatpacking plants. Trump was referring to Tyson Food Inc, which suspended operations of its largest pork production plant last week.
Early Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted that "OBAMAGATE makes Watergate look small time!"
"It would have been bad even with the best of governments". The crime is very obvious to everybody. "It's been going on from before I even got elected", but when pressed on what crime he felt Obama committed, he demurred.
But when asked to specify on Monday what "Obamagate" is, Trump refused.
When asked at a news conference on Monday what crime he was accusing Obama of committing and whether he thought the Justice Department should prosecute the former president, even Trump himself seemed a little fuzzy on the details. "All you have to do is read the newspapers, except yours", he said.
"That's the kind of stuff where you begin to get anxious that basic-not just institutional norms - but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk".
