This is truly an administration that doesn’t have it together. As it seems, they all couldn’t be more clueless.
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA — While Trump is sitting in the Oval Office dwelling on new golf tactics his assistant read before the morning brief, America is sitting back laughing along with the rest of the world after approximately 200 letters were reportedly distributed in error.

According to Aisha Sultan, a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, she shared an interesting photo on Friday via Twitter. Her British-born husband received a congratulatory letter from the White House welcoming him as a citizen of the United States.
However, instead of Donald Trump’s signature, Barack Obama was the signer on the document.
“We embrace you as a new citizen of our land, and we welcome you to the American family,” read the letter.
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

So far, as you can see, the columnist’s post has received over 174,000 likes.
This is interesting because, according to Huffington Post, welcome letters are usually produced by the new administration and then distributed to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency. But apparently, as we all know very well, this administration isn’t doing its job.
Or, maybe Donald Trump just doesn’t want new American citizens?
Interestingly enough, according to USCIS spokeswoman Maria Upson, the agency still hasn’t received a welcome letter or video message from Trump regarding new U.S. citizens.
On both counts .

USCIS press secretary Gillian Christensen mentioned the oversight resulted in nearly 200 of the letters being distributed, as aforementioned.
And, according to other families who have joined the ranks of American citizens, this isn’t the first time the Trump Administration has messed up in this way.
My husband was sworn in back in March, & they accidentally started the Obama congrats video. Everyone cheered! 1/2

I mean, really? Just how lame is this administration? This is ridiculous.
