Rhodes: Opposition to Obama Policy on Cuba, Paris Climate Agreement Can’t Be Ideological (The Washington Free Beacon)
Former Obama administration aide Ben Rhodes said Monday that opposition to Barack Obama's policies couldn't be ideological, saying the Trump administration's opposition is politically motivated.
CBS' Gayle King asked Rhodes about how President Donald Trump has rolled back many of the policies that were put in place by the Obama administration.
"You said ‘we didn't always get things right but the larger project of believing that America is a better place.’ When you look at the Trump administration, many people believe that they're trying to unravel and undo everything that the Obama administration did," King said. "Does [Obama] feel that way and do you, members of the administration, feel that everything that you did, the work that you accomplished, that they're now trying to take it all apart? Do you feel that?"
