Barack Obama

Former President Barack Obama criticized demands to “defund the police,” a phrase that was popularized during months of protests against police brutality.
Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton all said they would take a coronavirus vaccine.
“If Anthony Fauci tells me this vaccine is safe and can immunize you from getting COVID, absolutely I’ll take it," Obama said this week.
Progressive Democrats, including Ilhan Omar and Cori Bush, criticized the former president for painting defunding as little more than a divisive "slogan."
The former president told Stephen Colbert he would "call Biden" to remedy his "screw-up."
“It’s not a game. It’s our democracy.” The former president compared President Donald Trump’s attempt to steal the election with a losing Super Bowl team refusing to accept defeat.
But "it’s not a game, it’s our democracy," the former president warned.
The president-elect said he plans to nominate Janet Yellen to head the Treasury Department in an historic first.
Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason pushed back on Trump's election fraud claims, prompting an outburst.
"That is a talented, talented brother," the former president said.
