Obama memoir confronts role his presidency played in Trump’s rise


Former President Barack Obama’s new memoir directly confronts the role his presidency played in Trump’s rise.

In the memoir, Obama writes:

“It was as if my very presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a sense that the natural order had been disrupted, Which is exactly what Donald Trump understood when he started peddling assertions that I had not been born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president. For millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House, he promised an elixir for their racial anxiety.”

Obama’s 768-page memoir, titled A Promised Land and due out on November 17.
