Former President Obama will return to public life next week and that’s sure to irk Donald Trump because the differences between the two men couldn’t be any starker.
According to a press release from his office, “President Barack Obama will be joined by young leaders on Monday, April 24, 2017, at 11 am CT for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement at the University of Chicago. This event is part of President Obama’s post-presidency goal to encourage and support the next generation of leaders driven by strengthening communities around the country and the world. Young adults from schools in the Chicago area have been invited to attend the event.”
Obama’s return to public life will most certainly generate press coverage and snatch some spotlight from the lunacy of the Trump White House. The House and Senate Republicans continue to flail and fail despite having control of the legislative and executive branches.
The more Obama is in the public spotlight, the more people will recognize that the current occupant of the White House is a national disaster. I, for one, am glad that President Obama is committed to helping build a new generation of leaders who will be major players following the wreckage that Donald Trump will leave behind.
