I noticed that the only comment he made, which was related in any way to the situation on the ground, was when he essentially states that it will be
up to Trump to be a president for all the people of the United States. That whole little segment, first half of his comments, nearish to the
beginning, in response to a question, seems to me to have been a message to Trump. You set the fire, so you should put it out, was what I got from
If I was Trump watching this, I would take that as a cue to get visible and control the situation by reassurance, because the thing of it is
Obama cannot control the streets. That is not his job, and to be fair, it is not a presidents job at all. It's the job of the person who puts the cat
amongst the pigeons, the job of those against whom the protest is levelled, to come out and speak to those who have a grievance. When a sitting
government causes a protest with its policies, it is the job of that government to come out and speak to folks, to reassure, to explain, to be
responsive. But this is not the case here.
Obama has no way to reassure the people in the streets that their lives and way of life will not change in negative ways because of something Trump
does. Until that concern is removed or lessened, until the people are satisfied that Trump is not going to make negative changes to the way their
lives operate, until he addresses the concerns of every group he has vilified and dehumanised throughout his campaign, there will be a problem, and it
is one which Obama, purely by way of not being the source of the problem, cannot actually solve for people. That is a matter between the people and
the President Elect now.
