Barack Obama called Trump a “racist and sexist pig” and a “corrupt son of a bitch,” says new book
The ex-president Barack Obama It would have been unleashed in 2020 in its negative qualifications towards the former president Donald trump during the last presidential campaign.
The democrat was careful in how he referred to the Republican, so as not to affect the now president Joe bidenBut a new book recounts that at events with donors and advisers, Obama spoke freely.
The book Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump, written by Edward-Isaac Dovere, a journalist for The Atlantic, recounts how that the former Democratic president expressed himself.
Obama referred to the Republican as a “madman”, a “racist and sexist pig”, “that fucking lunatic” and a “corrupt son of a bitch”, according to a preview published by The Guardian, the first outlet to have access to the book, which will be published next week.
Relations between Democrats are recounted in the book, according to other reports, including a passage from the now-first lady. Jill biden against the now vice president Kamala harris during the primary contest.
“(He should) go to hell,” Jill Biden said after Harris attacked the now president in the Democratic debates.

“’That corrupt son of a bitch,’ Obama commented.
