President Obama has described Donald Trump as ignorant, dangerous and unfit to lead the nation, but he’ll ask the Republican president-elect Thursday not to wipe out his cherished, legacy-making executive actions on everything from the Iranian nuclear deal to Obamacare.

In a meeting at the White House to prepare Mr. Trump for taking office, Mr. Obama will try to persuade the president-elect to honor what his aides call a “tradition” of preserving executive actions implemented by the departing chief executive.

“There is a tradition, particularly with regard to executive agreements of successive presidents preserving some element of continuity,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “I don’t know whether or not that will apply in this case. But as a part of this effective, smooth transition, President Obama will have an opportunity to talk to President-elect Trump about some of the benefits of these policies.”

Mr. Trump campaigned on promises of repealing the Affordable Care Act, ripping up Mr. Obama’s international climate change agreement to curb carbon emissions and tossing out his free trade agreement with Pacific Rim nations and scaling back the executive order granting deportation amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, among others. He has said his top priority is “to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran” that lifted international economic sanctions in return for limits on Tehran’s nuclear programs.

The meeting will be Mr. Trump’s first visit to the White House since defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton early Wednesday in a bitterly fought campaign. After attacking Mr. Trump repeatedly as an intellectually lazy liar who wasn’t qualified to work at a 7-Eleven, Mr. Obama now finds himself in the position of seeking the Republican’s consent to protect many of the president’s achievements that were implemented unilaterally, without the approval of Congress.

Yeah...right! :)))

Don't do it Trump!!!,Obama broke the law when he used Executive Orders so he could break the law,if you leave them in place you are giving two thumbs up on breaking the law,remove all of them and remove Obamacare,start with a clean Administration.

Don't do it Donald, only comment that you will review them. Remember you campaigned against corruption!

I hope he tells this POS he can go F himself!

Another NEW agenda of the DEMS.   You do not wipe out the other guys illegal executive  illegal orders.   Trying to destroy the Constitution and our laws.   Why should we vote for change and keep all these peoples  illegal act in place.   Instead of us "working" with those that have only wanted  our $$$ ... how about them "working" with those that want our laws  enforced.  Love the COnstitution.

I hope Trump told Obama no and why.

I hope he not only told him no but HELL NO! No explanation no apology no nothing, just no! He may suggest just where he can go!!!!!!!!!! 

That will never happen.

And hopefully, Trump will ask him to go to Hell.

No such luck......but, someone bigger than Trump will....IF....he doesn't convert   ;o)

Sorry Barry, you're "legacy" is history.

The ghost of his misguided legacy will represent itself as a reminder of a FAILED radical president.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
