Former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in an interview with MSNBC Monday that the former president may be forced to speak out against the Trump administration if certain “clear red lines” are crossed.
One of those red lines he said would be the Trump administration deporting DREAMer beneficiaries who are not born in the United States.
When asked by MSNBC’s Chris Jansing about what would motivate Obama to reengage in the political debate, Earnest said his former boss would weigh in on politics if he senses a threat to America’s “core values.”
At the end of January, Obama had expressed his support to protests against President Trump’s proposed temporary immigration ban.
But Earnest emphasized that Obama would not be inclined to respond to every small issue.
“He spent the last eight years doing it, it’s somebody else’s turn to do that now,” Earnest said.
100% Fed Up reports:
America’s favorite community organizer turned President of the United States, turned community organizer (again) is back! And he’s not messing around. Obama’s former press liar made an appearance tonight on MSNBC and officially announced that his former boss is drawing another “red line!” This time however, the “red line” isn’t meant to threaten Syria, it’s meant to threaten President Trump and his administration. If this petulant community organizer’s actions weren’t so embarrassing, they would almost be funny…almost.
