Donald Trump Defends Obama, Calls Chelsea Manning 'Traitor'
President Donald Trump says Chelsea Manning is a traitor for calling former President Barack Obama a "weak president."
Trump said it all in a tweet -- saying Manning is ungrateful and should remain in prison. Trump's comment is apparently in reference to a column written by Manning in The Guardian.
In the column, Manning writes "...Obama left behind hints of a progressive legacy. Unfortunately, despite his faith in our system and his positive track record on many issues over the last eight years, there have been very few permanent accomplishments. This vulnerable legacy should remind us that what we really need is a strong and unapologetic progressive to lead us."
Obama commuted Manning's sentence. Manning is a transgender woman and former Army private who was convicted of stealing and leaking military secrets to WikiLeaks. She will be free on May 17 this year, instead of 2045.
