Obama responsible for Trump win
Everyone senses without the necessity of logical reasoning or knowledge of the third law of movement formulated by the English physicist and mathematician Isaac Newton that any action provokes an equal and contrary reaction. For example, if you push the water with an oar the water responds by pushing the boat in the opposite direction. It is a physical law, but also a concept of practical use in the everyday life of people.
It seems little less than impossible to imagine Donald Trump’s path to the White House prior to the entry onto the scene of President Barack Obama in 2008. A Trump presidency was not even feasible in 2012. Paradoxically, Mr. Obama’s second term seems to have created the conditions that provoked the popular reaction that gave the triumph to Mr. Trump. Mr. Obama’s second term was a Pyrrhic victory. Mr. Trump would probably never have made it to the presidency of the United States if it had not been for Mr. Obama.
