EXCELLENT: Trump Sidesteps Yearslong Tradition, Opts to Not Unveil Obama White House Portrait – Reports – My C omments

[I detest the black communist faggot Obama. As far as I'm concerned he was NOT a valid President of the USA. My original, extremely loyal, old American lady supporter, who passed away in 2012, used to say to me that "Obama is not my president". She lived in Oregon. She said America had changed so much since she was a kid that she could not recognise it any more. She also tried to teach me about the Jews. Before she passed away, I had the pleasure of telling her that I now understood the Jewish problem. I think of JoAn. I think all my current supporters would have loved her. She used to say to me: Jan, we could be COUSINS… because she was alluding to the fact that we all come from Europe. She visited South Africa and I visited her in the USA. I think she would have been over the moon with my current website and my videos about the filthy stinking Jewish garbage. However, I was always racial, seeing whites as a group. I just attributed the enemy to being "communism" instead of mentioning: JEWISH COMMUNISM!

He had such potential for whites in America. He had the whites totally on his side. So sad. He could have done BIG THINGS. Maybe Jews would have killed him though if he did. Who knows what blackmail has been used against him. I wish Trump had been a WHITE AMERICAN instead of just "an American". There is only one kind of American I recognise and that is WHITE AMERICANS.

Historically, presidents have engaged in this tradition, which consists of placing the portrait of the former president in the East Room for public viewing, putting aside any political differences. The first formal meeting of this type apparently occurred in 1978, when Jimmy Carter hosted his predecessor Gerald Ford, NBC News reported.

HOWEVER, AS A RESULT OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS REGARDING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, IN WHICH TRUMP HAS ACCUSED HIS PREDECESSOR OF BEING INVOLVED IN A SCHEME TO INTERFERE WITH THE FBI’S INVESTIGATION INTO FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN, IT’S POSSIBLE THE TRADITION WON’T EXACTLY BE CONTINUING AT THE PRESENT TIME.

Trump hasn’t shied away from slamming the Obama administration on multiple occasions. Most recently, on Sunday, Trump called Obama “grossly incompetent” after Obama criticized “the folks in charge” for their handling of the coronavirus outbreak one day prior.

And prior to that, Trump in a series of rage tweets, called on Republican lawmakers to have Obama testify before the US Senate over what Trump sees as wrongdoing against his 2016 presidential campaign, a move some experts have suggested may set a new precedent.

“YOU’VE GOT A PRESIDENT WHO’S TALKING ABOUT PUTTING THE PREVIOUS ONE IN LEGAL JEOPARDY, TO PUT IT NICELY. WE HAVE NOT SEEN A SITUATION LIKE THAT IN HISTORY,” PRESIDENTIAL HISTORIAN MICHAEL BESCHLOSS TOLD NBC NEWS. “IT TAKES ANTIPATHY OF A NEW PRESIDENT FOR A PREDECESSOR TO A NEW LEVEL.”

Unlike the snag hit by Trump, past administrations have been able to put aside their differences. During the George W. Bush portrait unveiling ceremony in 2012, Obama put his disagreements with Bush aside, claiming that while they “may have [their] differences politically … the presidency transcends those differences,” NBC News reported.

IN A 2017 INTERVIEW WITH THE WHITE HOUSE HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION IN 2017, FORMER WHITE HOUSE CURATOR BETTY MONKMAN CALLED THE UNVEILING TRADITION “A STATEMENT OF GENEROSITY ON [THE PART OF] THE CURRENT PRESIDENT AND FIRST LADY.”

“And it’s a very warm, lovely moment,” she added.

However, both the White House and Katie Hill, a spokesperson for Obama, have declined to comment on the matter.
