There is no doubt that American President Donald Trump is under a collective, fierce and diverse attack from the opposing liberal camp. His men and his Republican Party are also under a similar attack but at a lesser degree. All this aims to separate between him and his base of supporters.

The forms of this attack diversified as the midterm elections near, from writing books, of which the most prominent is the book by famous journalist Bob Woodward, to scandalous mysterious articles, of which the most prominent was the New York Times’ anonymous op-ed that’s attributed to an “alleged” senior official who overturned inside the Trump administration. Trump has called for an investigation into the source of the op-ed.

Truth is Trump wakes up every day to new battles by his “Obamaian” rivals, especially those from the Democratic camp. This is in addition to media smoke bombs and legal distractions

Obama’s mobilization attempts

And finally, there have been the statements and speeches of which the most prominent was that made by Barack Obama, the orator of orators, and the mouthpiece of the Democratic camp that has a leftist orientation. Obama, along with his tongue and body language are the sharpest weapons he and his group have.

OPINION: The Lebanese ‘complexes’ and the Syrian regime

Last Saturday, Obama addressed people in California calling for mobilization to change the majority in the Congress and condemned what he described as Trump’s “politics of fear.” Speaking before a huge crowd in Anaheim, Obama said: “It's a consequential moment in our history. We have the chance to restore some sanity in our politics.”

Obama added that “people feel afraid” due to a series of bad issues such as the worsening of climate change! It’s a usual American liberal media, or rather a global approach, that puts all the world’s evils on Donald Trump’s character, methodology, administration and term. This speech by Obama was the second one in days after he delivered an address in Illinois flagrantly attacking and criticizing Trump.

The iron president who knows his rivals’ motives and style well did not miss the chance to respond to them and mock them. While visiting North Dakota, Trump mockingly responded to Obama’s statement saying: “I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep,” sparking laughter from the audience. He accused the former Democratic president of “trying to take credit for this incredible thing that’s happening to our country.”

Truth is Trump wakes up every day to new battles by his “Obamaian” rivals, especially those from the Democratic camp. This is in addition to media smoke bombs and legal distractions.

Who would rejoice in this vehement war against Trump’s era other than Obama and his movement, and other than the American left that’s represented in the media and celebrities?

Oh yes, then there is Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei who invited his Russian guest Vladimir Putin to “curb” the current US. The entire “global” Khomeini network is working on that.

What nurtures this war and further ignites it is the global Muslim Brotherhood network, whether it’s wearing a mask or not and whether it’s an Arabic-speaking affiliate or foreign-speaking affiliate.

Last but not least, there are the global leftist groups. What’s ironic is that it is this “triangle” that united to create and support the so-called Arab Spring in the past. It’s the great universal triangle, which is decorated with a smiling photo of the orator of orators, Illinois’ boy, Barack Hussein Obama.
