When Obama Says ‘I Will Not’ for Trump, It’s Time to Stop Saying ‘I Believe’
The president of the United States is telling Americans that they should be able to believe whatever they want about their leaders.
But there is a difference between the president and the leader of the country.
When President Donald Trump says that he will not be a party to the court cases and legal challenges that are challenging his presidency, it’s time to stop saying “I believe” and instead be more direct and honest about what it is you think about the man you are electing.
If you believe what the president says, then it is up to you to tell the president, “You have my word on this.
I won’t be a part of the litigation.”
That is exactly what President Barack Obama did, when he was campaigning for his reelection in 2008.
“I will not do the same thing if I am president,” Obama said in the wake of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision.
“The American people can make their own decisions about who should be the president of their country.
But as president, I will not participate in litigation.
I will stand up to the special interests and the special interest lobbyists that are trying to destroy the democracy of our country.
And I will fight for the people who are working so hard to change this country.
The American people have spoken and we need to be willing to listen to them.
I want to see the American people, the American Dream, return to the way it was.”
This is what Americans want, not what the country wants.
As I said at the outset of this piece, I am a staunch supporter of the Constitution, and I think it is a great thing that we have a Constitution that protects us from being taken advantage of.
But the Constitution does not make for a better country.
We need a leader who is willing to take on special interests that want to take away our freedoms and our rights.
And that is what President Donald J. Trump will do.
But to stop this from happening, we need a president who is more direct, who is less willing to be bullied by special interests, who speaks directly to the American voters, and who is ready to stand up and say, “I’m not a part, I won, I believe, and that is the end of it.”
