Albright: Trump should focus on himself instead of ‘always blaming Obama’

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Friday suggested that President Trump think “about what he was doing” in office instead of targeting former President Obama on Twitter.

“The Obama administration worked very hard on dealing with the terrorist issues. It would be really nice if President Trump actually thought about what he was doing rather than always blaming president Obama,” Albright said on CNN.

Albright also said that she had “not particularly” seen a difference in U.S. efforts against terrorism under President Trump over first his nine months in office. {mosads}

Her comments followed Trump’s condemnation of a terrorist attack in London on Friday, during which he touted his work against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years. Must be proactive [and] nasty!” Trump said on Twitter.  

An improvised explosive device detonated in a London subway train Friday, injuring at least 22 people. The London Metropolitan Police are treating the attack as an act of terror, which is being investigated by the British domestic intelligence agency MI5.
