There’s a tradition among the former presidents of our country in which they stay out of the way of the newly elected ones in order for them to shine unchallenged. A tradition, which former president Obama ignored, as he made appearance last night in an attempt to bring down President Trump and the Republican Party.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Obama appeared on Thursday night to headline a fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. This event took place at a private home in D.C. on which attended House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder. The purpose of the fundraiser was to raise money in order to supply the coming electoral battles next year in a bid to control the redistricting effort which is expected to take place after the 2020 census.
“Restoring fairness to our democracy by advocating for fairer, more inclusive district maps around the country is a priority for president Obama,” the former president’s spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement.
The NDRC was established back in January and is run by Eric Holder.
Obviously, former president Obama doesn’t intend to retreat from the spotlight. Instead, he plans to focus all his efforts into ensuring that President Trump doesn’t win the next elections. Obama himself and his crooked policies are the sole reason Democrats lost over 1,000 seats at the state and federal level, and also congressional and state legislative seats, governorships etc.
