Obama tells NPR he receives taunts from Trump supporters
President Obama said Monday that he’s received letters from Donald Trump supporters gloating that America is “great again.”
“There’s been some letters that say, ‘I am so glad you’re getting out of here. Good riddance. You’ve been a horrible president,’” Mr. Obama said in a wideranging interview broadcast by NPR.
The president said he usually writes back. Mr. Obama also said he has received letters from young Hispanics and Muslims who are worried about the election outcome.
“The letters that worry me most are letters from either teachers or students themselves, where they say, ‘I’m in a majority Latino school, and I’m teaching third-graders, and a child will go up to a teacher and say, ‘Why don’t people like me?’” Mr. Obama said. “Or a Muslim college student who starts thinking that there’s no place for her in this country that she loves. Those are the most worrisome, and those are ones where I respond and say that you have to have faith in the basic goodness of this country and that it outweighs the bad.”
