However, Professor at the Higher school of Economics Alexander Domrin on radio Sputnik said that skeptical about the content of the post Obama.
Recall that Donald trump, commenting on events in Charlottesville, condemned hatred and intolerance “many sides.” He allegedly deliberately avoided mention of the nationalists in his speech, which caused confusion on the part of some Americans, said “Газета.Ru”.
Domrin believes that the attempts of the opponents of the current President of the United States to expose him as a racist at least dishonest. “Obama quoted in his tweet Nelson Mandela. Let us remember: in the last decade were two of the most respected in Africa leader Nelson Mandela and Muammar Gaddafi. So it’s under Obama and his Secretary of state (Hillary Clinton) was so sweetly admired, looking at the entry scenes of Gaddafi’s murder,” reminded americanist.
