Barack Obama’s subtle burn towards Donald Trump

It could well be the question you’ll never have an answer to — just what does outgoing United States president

It could well be the question you’ll never have an answer to — just what does outgoing United States president Barack Obama think of the man set to replace him at the White House. Being interviewed on US television show This Week, Obama was asked if he liked president-elect Donald Trump, but he appears to have dodged the question entirely.

“You know, I’ve enjoyed the conversations we’ve had,” Obama said to interviewer George Stephanopoulos.

“He is somebody who, I think, is not lacking in confidence.”

Obama went on to say that ‘confidence’ is certainly a quality one requires when considering the job of President of the United States.

“Or at least you have to have enough craziness to think that you can do the job,” he said.

“I think that he has not spent a lot of time sweating the details of, you know, all the policies.”


The wide-ranging interview that was recorded on January 6 included reflections on Obama’s time in the White House, which comes to an end on January 20 when Donald Trump is inaugurated, his achievements and disappointments, and what (if any) expectations he has regarding his legacy.

Using the measured tones you have come to expect, Obama said that when Donald Trump takes office in late-January he will be in charge of “the largest organisation on earth” and it is unlikely Trump will be able to “manage [in] they way you would manage a family business”.

What are your thoughts on president-elect Donald Trump? Do you think Barack Obama has been a strong president for the US? Who are the notable leaders in your mind? Tell us why.

    Thanks and Praise Be. He’s going FINALLY!! That Obama is so in love with himself. Thinks he’s the answer to the world and just loves to hear his own voice. Why why why did the American people vote him in twice? Just have to wonder where their brains were but I guess the answer was that it was time for the token “American Black President”.

      You obviously haven’t studied the financial situation before Obama came to power and the state it is now in. He’s left it in a much stronger position than it was when he was elected. But hey, let’s not let facts get in the way of a unqualified, blatant biased racial opinion! You’d make a great shock jock and the Nazi’s would be proud of you.

      Oh lord u really believe what u r saying, how sad. America under Trump is now the laughing stuff of the world. He is a racist bigoted fat arrogant person who is so in luv with himself a total narcissist oh boy r u in for a fall, hope it’s just u guys and not the rest of the world but I fear it will b . Can’t even call him a man because he’s not and I’m sure the Russians did groom him and have plenty of dirt on him, so they can try and blackmail him, but all he does is denagrate the ppl who produce the reports that call him out, just a pity that what he does will affect the rest of the world. U will begging for Obama to come back after a few months as the world already is. We r afraid already and he hasn’t even been sworn in yet. Enjoy your bumpy ride, have a feeling it will short because he will b impeached
