A recently unearthed essay written by Barack Obama in 1991 reveals that the former President praised Donald Trump as the “American Dream” come true.
While studying at Harvard, Barack Hussein Obama II co-wrote an essay arguing that the pinnacle of the American dream is to be exactly like Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reports:
A recently unearthed essay co-written by Barack Obama in 1991 stated that the American dream is to be Donald Trump.
Penned while the former president was a graduate student at Harvard Law — with the help of fellow classmate Robert Fisher — “Race and Rights Rhetoric” summed up the American mindset as “a continuing normative commitment to the ideals of individual freedom and mobility, values that extend far beyond the issue of race in the American mind.”
“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.”
The excerpt of that previously unpublished law school paper found its way inside Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the new 1,460-page biography written by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Garrow that focuses on Obama’s early years.
The Harvard essay also stated that African Americans should “shift away from rights rhetoric and towards the language of opportunity.”
These views are significantly different from the divisive politics of victimhood Obama preaches today, which the Democrats continue to use in order to divide America.
