Obama’s Harvard Days: ‘The AMERICAN DREAM is to be like TRUMP’

Life is a funny thing, especially when you’re someone on the public stage.

YEARS before Obama became one of the USA’s worst presidents, he penned an essay stating Donald Trump was the epitome of the ‘American Dream’.

While Barry was just a school boy at Harvard he wrote an essay arguing the American dream is to be like Donald Trump.

The Daily Caller reported: 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The excerpt of that previously unpublished law school paper found its way inside Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the new 1,460-page biography written by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David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.

Today it is hilarious to think Obama even wrote such words. Trump could have used this material during his campaign.

Obama’s essay also argued that black Americans should “shift away from rights rhetoric and towards the language of opportunity.”

Apparently someone in the Democratic party knocked that logic right out of him, because during Obama’s presidency he started using politics of victimhood to divide America.
