President Donald Trump has been very vocal over the years regarding former President Barack Obama. Interestingly, many of the things for which Trump berated Obama have continued to occur – only now with our current president.
Trump tweeted numerous times admonishing Obama for playing too much golf, particularly during times of crisis.
Can you believe that,with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.Worse than Carter

President @BarackObama's vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars—-Unbelievable!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2012
Trump frequently complained about Obama’s vacations when, in fact, Trump’s family trips have cost taxpayers nearly as much in one month as Obama’s did in an entire year.
Trump said he doesn’t need intelligence briefings because he is “smart,” but he often complained about Obama missing intelligence briefings.
Obama has missed 58% of his intelligence briefings. But our president does make 100% of his fundraisers.

Obama can attend a fundraiser every day but can’t be bothered to get briefed on national security. Commander-in-Chief?!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2014
Fact–Obama does not read his intelligence briefings nor does he get briefed in person by the CIA or DOD. Too busy I guess!

President Obama, our great leader, wants to declare martial law in New York City as a means of helping out with the "massive" storm.

Trump didn’t agree with Obama when he wanted to send the Feds to New York City, but he threatened to send the Feds to Chicago.
If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!

Obama has admitted that he spends his mornings watching @ESPN. Then he plays golf, fundraises & grants amnesty to illegals.

Trump didn’t approve of Obama watching ESPN in the mornings, but he reportedly watches hours of television each morning himself.
Congratulations to Chuck Hagel on one of the shortest tenures as Sec. of Defense. Another terrible appointee by Obama.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2014
Trump believed Obama appointee Chuck Hagel’s short tenure was laughable. However, Trump appointee Mike Flynn set a record with only 24 days as national security adviser (the average tenure is 2.6 years).
Even Jimmy Carter just released a statement saying that Obama doesn't have a clue. That has to be a new low!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 9, 2014
Trump thought former President Jimmy Carter’s low opinion of Obama in 2014 was an embarrassing “new low,” but in 2016 Carter also said Trump had a lack of “moral and ethical principles.”
President Obama has just reached an ALL-TIME low approval rating! Is anybody surprised? The happiest person is former President Jimmy Carter
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 6, 2014
Trump slammed Obama for his low approval ratings. Ironically, Trump currently holds the record for the lowest approval rating of any new president ever.
Why did Pres Obama remove sanctions against Iran prior to negotiating rather than completing successful negotiation & then remove sanctions?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2014
Trump thought it was a bad business move for Obama to remove sanctions and not get anything in return, but he did the same by removing Russian sanctions with no hint of negotiating first.

Trump sarcastically congratulated Obama on his “great accomplishment” of earning three of the Washington Post’s “biggest Pinocchios of the years” in 2013. Trump was awarded five in 2016.
