Giuliani: Obama Trying to Create Problems for Trump

Friday on Fox News Channel’s  “Fox & Friends,” former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said President Barack Obama’s sanctions against Russia and failure to veto the anti-Israel U.N. resolution is an attempt to create “problems for a future president.”

Giuliani, “I find this all part of what is extraordinary in what President Obama is doing. I’ve never seen a president try to create more problems for a future president. First, he double crosses Israel and after many times and many other presidents vetoing the condemnation of Israel for taking the settlements he does it and creates lack of leverage for Israel and the United States in trying to trade land for peace or try other negotiations in the last hours of his presidency. He completely double-crosses one of our biggest allies, and now after 18 months of this hacking he does something about it. Why didn’t he do something about it 18 months ago?”

“It wouldn’t have happened,” he continued. “Somebody can honestly say none of this would have happened if President Obama had been awake — if President Obama had listened to Mitt Romney when Mitt Romney said Russia was a threat and he laughed at him. If he didn’t reset the relationship with Russia and give up the defense of the Czech Republic and Poland, if he didn’t invite Russia into Syria and bring Russia back into the Middle East after 30 years of being out of the Middle East, after all that, and letting this go for 18 months, two weeks before he goes out of office, he does a bunch of these sanctions just to create a problem for Russia. It’s not only too little too late, it’s almost silly in the way he did it.”

He added, “It’s a much bigger picture. It has to be seen in a much bigger picture and that’s why petty little actions like this don’t mean very much. It’s almost a mockery to say this is too little too late. It should have been done 10 months ago, 11 months ago, 12 months ago. If it is really true, the response should be much stronger. But I want to see that report, and then I would want my own people — I do investigations of hacking. I would want my own people to investigate this, and I would want to know who really did it and then I would hit them back so hard they wouldn’t be able to do it again.”
