It’s pretty obvious that Barack Obama himself has been paying very close attention to this upcoming President election. If he wasn’t then he wouldn’t have joked about the GOP candidates being afraid of CNBC. Yes, Trump and Carson both requested security protection by the Secret Service and oddly enough, the Dept. of Homeland Security granted their request (which I’m pretty sure goes through the approval of Barack Obama first).
So Barack is willing to protect Trump & Carson which I’m sure those are two men that Barack really despises.
Barack could be on his way into the election to illegally run for a third term and he can’t wait to get in the race so he can debate those two. That’s probably why Barack has agreed to protect them and keep them alive.
