Trump leaves Obama out in the cold in SA

'Instructions by Washington' were that no assistance other than security be given to the former US president - a break from diplomatic tradition.

The Mandela 100 commemoration became a mini battlefield in the ongoing US political war this week, as the Trump administration ordered that Barack Obama not be given any assistance other than security arrangements by the American embassy in South Africa. The high-profile visit by the former president was mainly arranged and coordinated by the Nelson Mandela and Obama foundations, with no assistance from the US embassy in Pretoria - a break from the diplomatic tradition of offering support to any visiting American leader.

None of the US embassy staff had to play any role due to "instructions by Washington" that Obama should not be provided any assistance, according to a highly placed source. In the past, the US embassy has always provided full support to any visiting American leader regardless of party affiliation.

Asked for comment, respected Wits University international relations visiting professor John Stremlau said US President Donald Trump had "a penchant for pettiness and strange fixation with denigrating and dismissing virtually all actions by his predecessor".

5. Of course, Trump ignores two fundamental truths

In Africa, Obama is so well-liked, the only danger he is in is being delayed by too many admirers.

Trump, on the other hand, is in little danger himself, since no one with a shred of decency wants to be anywhere near him in the first place.

9. I doubt this inconvenienced him

He is so well liked I'm sure there were plenty of people who were more than happy to ensure things went smoothly. Twitler, on the other hand, has managed to embarrass us yet once again.

17. I suspect that

All the attacks on Hillary and President Obama are actually instigated from putin , and carried out for him by trump. trump trying to criminalize Hillary is clearly a tactic putin has used many times against people he opposed for opposing him, and Hillary has done so very openly, and President Obama hurt him with many sanctions, so this is more revenge , FOR PUTIN by trump i think. Hillary WAS right all along , trump is putins puppet. trump is under control of the Kremlin now. HE's showing us daily , and telling us daily.

22. What goes around, comes around, jackhole.

Once you're out of office (and the sooner, the better BTW)) you'll be a much larger target - figuratively and literally - than Barach Obama. You'll be looking over your shoulder constantly, and will never return to the tackily golden life you led before. I wish you a miserable life.
