Obama Accuses Trump Of Acting Like A Dictator

Obama Accuses Trump Of Acting Like A Dictator

Barack Obama compared President Donald Trump to a dictator during an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes on Sunday.

The former president suggested that Trump resembled a power hungry tyrant who would do anything to stay in power, (including killing people and suppressing journalists). He added that Joe Biden needs to signal to the world that is no longer the case.

Obama’s comments prompted social media users to recall his own penchant for drone strikes and wiretapping.

RT reports: The Democrat claimed Trump’s refusal to concede the 2020 election reveals sinister character traits in the incumbent Republican. He accused Trump of believing that “literally anything goes and is justified in order to get power,” adding that such an abhorrent philosophy is not “unique” to the US leader. 

There are strongmen and dictators around the world who think that, ‘I can do anything to stay in power. I can kill people. I can throw them in jail. I can run phony elections. I can suppress journalists.’

Obama expressed hope that presumed president-elect Joe Biden would reaffirm to the world that Washington still has “values.” 

Reacting to his inflammatory remarks, social media users referred back to Obama’s own White House term, noting that the ex-president might know a thing or two about “suppressing journalists.”

“Obama tapped 20 Associated Press office phone lines and the homes and phones of reporters. Trump tweets mean things,”noted Hudson Institute senior fellow Rebeccah Heinrichs.

In 2013, the Obama administration seized records of 20 AP office phone lines and reporters’ homes and cell phones, without providing notice, as part of a probe into the disclosure of information about a foiled Al-Qaeda plot.

In a fact check article from 2018, the news service said “Trump may use extraordinary rhetoric to undermine trust in the press, but Obama arguably went farther – using extraordinary actions to block the flow of information to the public.” 

AP also noted that Obama weaponized the 1917 Espionage Act, using it to prosecute more whistleblowers for leaking information to the public than all previous administrations combined. 

Commenters were similarly peeved that Obama was never pressed by 60 Minutes about allegations that his administration spied on the Trump campaign.
