Meeks: ‘Unprecedented’ for a President-Elect to Get Involved in the Decisions the Sitting President Is Making

‘What is unprecedented is a president-elect to get involved in decisions that a sitting president is making’

LEMON: "Do you think this is meant to box in? Do you think that there are politics at play here because it would be unprecedented and unusual for him to overturn the incoming president to overturn these sanctions?"
MEEKS: "Not at all. What I see that is unusual is — there's only one president at a time. Barack Obama is still the president of the United States. What is unprecedented is a president-elect to get involved in decisions that a sitting president is making. That is unprecedented."
