Trump Admin ordered US Embassy in Pretoria NOT to help Obama during visit

https://secondnexus.com/news/trump-administration-not-assist-obama/amp/

[blockquoteInstructions from Washington ensured that none of the U.S. embassy staff assisted the former president, whose visit “was mainly arranged and coordinated by the Nelson Mandela and Obama foundations,” breaking the longstanding diplomatic norm of providing support to any visiting American leader, regardless of their party affiliation.

Just underscores what a small, vindictive man the Trumpster truly is.

7. Pathetic and childish.

But to be expected.

Mr Trump, you really don't have to work so hard at being the worst president ever.

13. Glad you brought this up

It seems like such a bizarre thing to order, so I checked Snopes.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/obama-south-africa-embassy/

CLAIM
The Trump administration gave a directive to the U.S. embassy in South Africa not to assist former President Obama during his trip there.

RATING
Unproven

12. The news media is not covering this because it is not true.

The only source reporting it is a South African blog that no one has ever heard of. They quote a "high source". It is BS. If it was true someone close to Obama would have talked to the Washington Post or the New York Times -- not to some blog no one has heard of. It is fake.
