Former American leader Barack Obama, in his memoirs, listed a number of political figures and talked about the impression they made on him, writes the Daily Mail.
Recalling Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Obama noted that he reminded him of “the street-bred tough bosses who once ruled Chicago.” However, he noted that physically his former colleague was “unremarkable.”
On the pages of his memoirs, he also recalled former French President Nicolas Sarkozy: according to Obama, he “protruded his chest like a cocky cock.” Obama also admitted that he was bored of participating in meetings with former President of the People’s Republic of China Hu Jintao – he allegedly read a prepared text monotonously, forcing the American leader to think about offering to “exchange documents and save each other time by reading them at their leisure.” …
Speaking about his successor, Donald Trump, Obama noted that he took advantage of the mood of citizens before the elections. “He promised relief from anxiety to millions of Americans who were frightened by the presence of a black man in the White House,” reads an excerpt from the memoir.
A memoir entitled “Promised Land” describes Obama’s political career and his first presidential term. In addition, it describes several political figures from the point of view of the former head of state, who was in power from 2009 to 2017. On the pages of the book, Obama admitted that he knew about the alleged attempts to interfere in the American elections by Russia. The book will be published on November 17.
Earlier it was reported that federal prosecutors found no evidence of violations in the US presidential election. At the same time, the prosecutors considered that the investigation was not necessary, since no one had identified any reasonable suspicions of massive electoral fraud.
White House contender Joseph Biden proclaimed himself elected President of the United States on November 7 – according to various estimates, he received from 273 to 290 electoral votes against the required 270. The current American leader Donald Trump responded by saying that his rival was in a hurry to call himself the new president.
