Obama on Trump's racism: My arrival caused panic

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

Former US President Barack Obama wrote an autobiographical book in which he wrote about his presidency, and one of the topics was the current President Donald Trump and "his racism".

CNN had an insight into a copy of the book that will be published soon, and Obama, according to CNN, "directly confronts Donald Trump's racist policy."

Obama, the first African-American to head the country, points out that he believes that "his historic election as president in 2008 triggered a wave of bitterness and division among Republicans, who became obstructionists, which suddenly changed their party."

- My presence in the White House caused a deep panic, a feeling that the natural order was disturbed. That is exactly what Donald Trump understood when he started giving statements that I was not born in the United States and that I was therefore an illegitimate president. Trump promised millions of Americans a cure for their racial anxiety because he is an African-American in the White House - Obama wrote.

The book will be presented to the public on November 17.
