Trump and Obama Haven’t Spoken To Each Other Since Inauguration Day, Can You Guess Why?

Former presidents have a small fraternity with each other. In fact, in the early days of their administrations, they call their predecessors for advice.

It might not be surprising that they wouldn’t get along or want to talk, given how much Trump blames Obama for his current failures as a president. There’s also the fact that Trump spearheaded the “birther” conspiracy, claiming that Obama was born in Kenya and not the United States.
