WHAT! OBAMA USED TO DREAM OF BECOMING DONALD TRUMP: ‘I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait’

Posted on

  • Obama: I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will

 

So Barack Obama at one point dream of becoming like Donald Trump. This according to  soon-to-be-published Obama biography “Rising Star”.

 

Excerpt from Obama’s biography via the Washington Post:

Americans have a “continuing normative commitment to the ideals of individual freedom and mobility . . . The depth of this commitment may be summarily dismissed as the unfounded optimism of the average American – I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will.”

    Obama is using the 1st-person pronoun as a way of telling us what the average American thinks. Read the whole sentence! Americans don’t think they are poor; they are “pre-rich,” as one journalist has put it.
