“Sincerely, Barack Obama”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Aisha Sultan celebrated her British-born husband’s newfound American citizenship on Twitter yesterday, sharing the customary welcome letter he’d received from the President of the United States.
Nearly seven months after Donald Trump assumed the presidency, however, the document was “signed” by former President Barack Obama.
“We embrace you as a new citizen of our land,” the letter reads, signed by Obama. “And we welcome you to the American family.”
My British-born husband takes his oath of citizenship today. In the packet for new Americans, the welcome letter from POTUS is from Obama. 😂 pic.twitter.com/O56cMj0hhx— Aisha Sultan (@AishaS) July 14, 2017
Needless to say, Twitter reacted:
This is what happens when you don't fill all those presidential appointments. Oh and worse.— Quentin Hardy (@qhardy) July 15, 2017
Let's keep it that way. How welcoming would a letter be from the other guy?— Dan Donovan (@casadonovan) July 14, 2017
I get mine in a few weeks. Really hoping this doesn't change between now and then.— farazter (@farazter) July 14, 2017
Congratulations to your husband! I also want to live in the🌎where Obama is still POTUS. 💐— Clotho ☕️☕️ (@clothosspindle) July 14, 2017
