While the list of differences between President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama runs long, one difference in particular is hard to miss: how the two leaders act around kids. Yes, while Obama seems completely natural when dealing with his youngest supporters, his Republican successor couldn’t be more different.
For whatever reason, Trump decided to hold aloft this baby at a rally in Tampa, Florida just days before the election. No doubt the gesture was meant to symbolize all that is great about America, but it actually looks horrendously unnatural.
Obama, though, exhibited a down-to-earth nature by lying on the floor to lift up this mini trick-or-treater on Halloween 2015. It seems likely, then, that the president was a super-fun dad to his own two daughters when they were kids – and likely still is now that they’re teenagers.
