Former president Barack Obama is no longer lying low, and is back fighting against President Trump’s policies at every turn.
Earlier this month, Obama traveled to Paris to fight for the climate change agreement that Trump has withdrawn the United States from.
Obama has also jumped into the Alabama senate campaign efforts, blasting out a recorded robocall begging voters to support Democrat candidate Doug Jones, while Trump is encouraging Alabama voters to back Republican Roy Moore.
Monday afternoon, the former president jumped on another issue in an effort to preserve his legacy, sending out a Twitter message pleading for Americans to hurry up and sign up for Obamacare – a program Trump has vowed to repeal.
“Just got off a call to thank folks who are working hard to help more Americans across the country sign up for health coverage. But it’s up to all of us to help spread the word: Sign up through this Friday at https://t.co/ob1Ynoesod,” Obama tweeted.
