President Barrack Obama is about to end his term in less than 90 days being as one of the worst President in the history of the United States. In terms of job approval rating, he is not the worst but not far at all from the worst. In campaigning for Hillary Clinton back in September said to black voters that he would feel personally insulted if the black community let its guard down and fails to preserve his legacy. But what legacy it actually is?
- Under President Obama’s presidency, several executive orders were filed that prevented the law enforcement officials from,tracking down illegal immigrants using methods such as stop and frisk. Under his presidency, the number of illegal immigrants in the country has reached the highest level ever. When Mr. Obama became president in 2008, hopes were high not only for economic revival but many thought the country could racially align but after eight years racial violence has reached a whole new level.
- Another one of the major failures of the Obama administration has been the ISIS. While the war in Iraq and Libya is definitely responsible for the formation of the terrorist group, much of it Obama inherited from the Bush administration. But it was his administration that triggered a crisis in Syria and failed to reach a common ground with Russia so that ISIS could be defeated.
- Finally, the evidence of outright corruption in his administration became so apparent that it will probably be his biggest legacy. It is now evident that President Obama lied in an interview in 2015 of his knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s email. Under his administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Justice department got accused of playing politics and being involved in a cover cover-up
