ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence says it’s disappointing that former President Barack Obama is back on the campaign trail criticizing President Donald Trump.
Says Pence: “The truth is, the American people in 2016 rejected the policy and direction of Barack Obama when they elected President Donald Trump.”
Pence comments in a taped interview set to air on “Fox News Sunday.” Fox released an excerpt on Saturday.
Obama campaigned for congressional Democrats from California on Saturday, a day after he excoriated Trump in a speech in Illinois.
Pence said it’s “very disappointing” to see Obama break with the tradition of former presidents, who largely shun the campaign trail, and “become so political.”
Pence says Obama rolled out “the same tired arguments that he and liberals have made over the last eight years.”
