FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA MAKES STRANGE CLAIM ABOUT REPUBLICANS — ALLEGES THEY PUSH IDEOLOGY THAT ‘WHITE MEN ARE VICTIMS’
November 29, 2020
Barack Obama said he believes that President Donald Trump accumulated more than 73 million votes this election cycle because some Republicans promote an attitude of “white men are victims,” according to Fox News.
“What’s always interesting to me is the degree to which you’ve seen created in Republican politics the sense that White males are victims.”
“They are the ones who are under attack – which obviously doesn’t jive with both history and data and economics. But that’s a sincere belief that’s been internalized, that’s a story that’s being told and how you unwind that is going to be not something that is done right away, it’s going to take some time.”
Obama said that the Trump administration “has failed miserably in handling just basic looking after the American people and keeping them safe.”
“It turns out politics is not just about policy, it’s not just about numbers, it’s about the stories that are being told.”
“I understand it because when I was elected there was so much excitement and hope, and I also think we generally view the presidency as almost like a monarchy in the sense of once the president’s there, he can just do whatever needs to get done and if he’s not doing it, it must be because he didn’t want to do it.”
“People were surprised about a lot of Hispanic folks who voted for Trump, but there’s a lot of evangelical Hispanics who, the fact that Trump says racist things about Mexicans, or puts undocumented workers in cages, they think that’s less important than the fact that he supports their views on gay marriage or abortion.”
Biden said, “This is not a third Obama term because we face a totally different world than we faced in the Obama-Biden administration. President Trump has changed the landscape, it’s become ‘America First,’ which meant America alone.”Previous articleDuring Biden’s Inauguration, Trump Planning To Announce 2024 Run?
