President Obama is attributing Donald Trump’s domestic success to exploitation of American fears and stress over a future.
“Some of it is justified, though only misdirected,” Obama told NPR News. “I consider somebody like Mr. Trump is holding advantage of that. That’s what he’s exploiting during a march of his campaign.”
In further to a nation’s changing demographics, Obama cited a mercantile stresses brought on a financial predicament of 2008-09, a increasing faith on new technology, globalization, and low salary and income â€”Â forces that have strike “blue-collar men” in particular.
“They are no longer removing a same discount that they got when they were going to a bureau and means to support their families on a singular paycheck,” Obama said. “You mix those things and it means that there is going to be intensity anger, frustration, fear.”
Trump, meanwhile, has built most of his debate on critique of Obama’s tenure in office, and heÂ leads many Republican welfare polls.
The New York billionaire has also questioned either Obama was innate in a United States. In a NPR News talk taped final week, a Hawaii-born boss pronounced some of those attacks might be attributable in partial to a fact that he is a nation’s initial African-American commander-in-chief.
“I would contend that that’s something that is actively promoted and might benefit traction since of my singular demographic,” Obama said.
