Trump to Manning: Stay in prison


As we reported several times, one of the last orders of Barack Obama as the USA President was to commute the sentence of the transgender whistleblower Chelsea Manning and to set her free this spring, not in 35 years. But it turned out that the current President Donald Trump strongly disliked this initiative and judged such a decision via Twitter. “Ungrateful TRAITOR Chelsea Manning, who should never have been released from prison, is now calling President Obama a weak leader. Terrible!” Trump was referring to a column in the Guardian penned by Manning from prison, which claims “Barack Obama’s legacy is a warning against not being bold enough”,lamenting his “very few permanent accomplishments”. But fortunately for Manning these are just words and Donald Trump is simply unable to roll back the decision to free her.
