Obama responded by telling the German media he is popular at home. 65% of Americans are upset with the direction of the country. After last week’s election the Democrat Party is at its weakest point in history.
Obama explained the Trump phenomena on social media and slogans.
“Part of what’s changed in politics is social media and how people are receiving information. It’s easier to make negative attacks and simplistic slogans than it is to communicate complex policies.”
He’s still blaming social media for Hillary’s historic loss.
