Looks Like The Obama’s Just Couldn’t Keep their Mouths Shut as they Tweet Rebukes Against Trump
Mainly it’s custom that previous presidents normally don’t make public statements where they criticize sitting presidents, but it seems former President Barack Obama and his first lady Michelle just could not keep their mouths shut.
Obama’s tweets were meant to be in response to President Donald Trump’s statements/tweets about on the poorest parts of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., district in Baltimore came via Twitter.
I’ve always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I’m proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that’s better. https://t.co/0cfDltjueP

“We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by,”
and signed by 149 African Americans who served in the Obama administration.
Former first lady Michelle also tweeted

Don’t you just wish previous Presidents would just retire… though I have to admit after 2024 I personally hope remains a thorn in Democrats sides.

- President Trump downplays last week’s missile tests by North Korea.
- He said the missiles were ‘short-range,’ commonly used by many countries, and therefore did not pose a threat to the U.S.
- President Trump says his working relationship with Chairman Kim Jong Un, remains in good condition and the tests were not carried out in bad faith against the U.S.
- Trump said the incident would not interfere with U.S. North Korea negotiations.
Looks like North Korea successfully test-fired two short-range missiles in an apparent warning to South Korean military warmongers, according to a photo provided by the North Korean government on July 25, 2019, showing a test of a missile launch in North Korea. (The content of this image is as provided and cannot be independently verified.)
Kim Jong Un supervised a test of a new-type tactical guided weapon that was meant to be a “solemn warning” about South Korean weapons introduction and it’s rival’s plans to hold military exercises with the United States.
“They are short range missiles and my relationship is very good with Chairman Kim and we’ll see what happens. But they are short range missiles, and many people have those missiles”
“He didn’t say a warning to the United States. I can tell you that. he didn’t say a warning to the United States” – President Trump

Just as momentum behind the bipartisan First Step Act takes effect the Justice Department has announced an overhaul to the federal criminal justice system.
“We will have done something that hasn’t been done in many many years and it’s the right thing to do”
In a landmark display, President Trump will give 2,200 non-violent federal inmates what he calls
“a second chance at life.”
There is a catch: Offenders must have a history of good behavior and complete the assessment in order to have their release dates recalculated.
Key elements of the law in the plan have already been rolled out. This plan involves a risk and needs assessment program, which is the cornerstone upon which inmates qualify for freedom. The course reportedly includes everything from community transition awareness, job training, and re-offending prevention among other criteria.
Back in 2018, President Trump said this will reduce crime and mainly allow low-level drug offenders a chance at redemption.
“Prison reform legislation that will reduce crime while giving our fellow citizens a chance at redemption, so if something happens and they make a mistake they get a second chance at life”
