Obama says he's 'proud of' former staffers who slammed Trump for 'poisoning of our democracy' in fie

Former President Obama tweeted Saturday that he is "proud of" how former staffers of his administration are "continuing to fight for an America that's better" after they penned an op-ed blasting President Trump for his "poisoning of our democracy."

"I've always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration," he tweeted with a link to the op-ed, which was published by The Washington Post on Friday.

"But more than what we did, I'm proud of how they're continuing to fight for an America that's better," he continued.

The op-ed, titled "We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by," was penned by 149 African American alumni of the Obama administration in support of congresswomen of color who were recently attacked by the president and told to "go back" to their home countries.
