In his last days in office, Barack Obama is doing anything he can to leave a lasting impact, while also making President-elect Donald Trump’s life that much harder for when he steps into the White House.
Whether it’s naming more than 1.6 million acres as national monuments to restrict the drilling of oil or imposing sanctions on Russia for alleged interference in the 2016 election, Obama is making the transition for Trump anything but smooth and easy.
In addition to what’s listed above, Breitbart reported on Thursday that Obama has “flooded” Nebraska with an additional 502 refugees during the first three months of this fiscal year.

The highest previous annual resettlement of refugees in the state since FY 2003 occurred in FY 2016, when 1,441 refugees were resettled. The highest previous annual resettlement of refugees in the state since FY 2003 occurred in FY 2016, when 1,441 refugees were resettled.
