â€œSincerely, Barack Obamaâ€
St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Aisha Sultan celebrated her British-born husbandâ€™s newfound American citizenship on Twitter yesterday, sharing the customary welcome letter heâ€™d received from the President of the United States.
Nearly seven months after Donald Trump assumed the presidency, however, the document was â€œsignedâ€ by former President Barack Obama.
â€œWe embrace you as a new citizen of our land,â€ the letter reads, signed by Obama. â€œAnd we welcome you to the American family.â€
My British-born husband takes his oath of citizenship today. In the packet for new Americans, the welcome letter from POTUS is from Obama. ðŸ˜‚ pic.twitter.com/O56cMj0hhx

Needless to say, Twitter reacted:
This is what happens when you don't fill all those presidential appointments. Oh and worse.

Let's keep it that way. How welcoming would a letter be from the other guy?

I get mine in a few weeks. Really hoping this doesn't change between now and then.
