Once reporter Jon Karl penned in his chronicle named Front Row at The Trump Show citing about an incident when President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump were sitting together in the Oval Office. The account reads, “I was immediately struck by Trump’s body language. I was seeing a side of him I had never seen. He seemed, believe it or not, humbled.”
However that was long back in November 2016 when Trump was not responsible to control the chamber, the journalist recollected and further stated about Obama who was guiding the action with his all-round appeal. Then his descendant “seemed a little dazed” besides being “a little freaked out”. But their discussion within the meeting has remained unknown to us.
Who’s the thwarted?
In the following years, it has led to clarity that Obama has turned out being an obsession for the present head of the state as the theme of a bureaucratic and personal diffidence. Afterwards, Tara Setmayer, who happens to be a former Republican communications director on Capitol Hill uttered, “Donald Trump always needs a foil.” Now, you can guess what it means!
Led by cynical instinct
However, beyond political prudence, there has been a deeprooted animus in the profession if you reconsider the take. Starting from the Iran nuclear deal to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Trump has apparently been on a purpose to remove his precursor’s legacy. Led by own underlying persuasions, Trump has discovered a pessimistic benchmark in Obama.
Uncovering the role of racism
In fact, Setmayer from the Honestly Speaking podcast has argued about the possible causes behind it saying, “Barack Obama is not a ‘shuck and jive’ person of colour, and those are the kinds of people that Donald Trump seems to be attracted to if you look at who he surrounds himself with as far as minorities are concerned.” Indeed, that’s a valid point!
Now, who knows how to accurately count upon one’s perceptions?
