For Obama's legacy, a few bright spots with Trump as nominee
WASHINGTON - There's no cheering at the White House for Donald Trump. Yet for President Barack Obama, things could be worse.
Trump's ascent as the presumptive Republican nominee makes some of Obama's main achievements more likely to survive after the next president takes over.
Trump's policy prescriptions are full of contradictions and short on specifics, but in general they're closer to Obama's than those of Ted Cruz and Trump's former GOP rivals.
Cruz steadfastly opposes Obama's outreach to Cuba, while Trump says it's "fine," though he'd have handled it differently.
Trump's even embraced a few key elements of Obama's health law.
On gay and transgender rights, Trump's tone has been softer than that of Cru and most of the other former Republicans contenders.
