I was pleasantly surprised by the breadth and honesty of this article in the Mail online. To so much of the media Obama seems to be beyond reproach, so good, such a saint. IT was very nice to see this piece by Piers Morgan, giving a more honest assessment of Obama.
Obama deported millions, killed thousands and now he’s out to slyly depose his successor, so why does everyone think he’s President Perfect?
Forgive me if I don’t join the ecstatic global race to canonise Mr Obama quite so enthusiastically.
For beneath his ever-smiley beatific halo lies a rather different, far murkier reality.
My favourite question for the anti-Trump brigade is this: ‘How many people did Barack Obama deport from America during his eight years as President?’
Most people guess 5,000, maybe 10,000. Even those with a good knowledge of how the real world of US immigration policy works rarely respond with a number higher than around 500,000.
In fact, Obama deported nearly THREE MILLION people.
That is the most deported by any president, ever.
His appalled critics even dubbed him ‘Deporter-in-Chief.’
