CNN: Why is Obama’s Relationship with Trump a Strained One?

CNN wrote a piece [1] that appears to lack common political sense, wondering why the relationship between President Trump and former President Barack Obama is a strained one.

Why would President Trump ask advice of his predecessor, Barack Obama? Trump ran against Obama’s policies and railed against Obama’s executive overreach and treatment of the coal industry, as well as the U.S. economy.

CNN also failed to recognize that Obama’s own passive-aggressive rhetoric does not make things easier between him and Trump. The network also did not recognize how Trump ran as an anti-political establishment candidate, so he will be unorthodox in many ways.
