Obama to Trump: Executive Action Is Good for Me, Bad for Thee (The Washington Free Beacon)

Despite his fondness for executive actions in the White House, President Obama recently said he was worried about the American people becoming “impatient with the slowness of democracy.”

“I have not changed Washington the way I wanted to change it,” Obama said in an interview last week with VICE. “And what I worry about in our politics is people getting impatient with the slowness of democracy, and the less effective Congress works, the more likely people are to start giving up on the core values and basic institutions that have helped us to weather a lot of storms.”

Obama made the remarks a month after Donald Trump won the White House.
