Former President Barack Obama called Donald Trump a “corrupt motherf–ker,” “madman” and a “racist, sexist pig” to people behind the scenes, a new book claims.
Obama had actually preferred Trump as president over Sen. Ted Cruz when the two were locked in a Republican primary battle, a forthcoming book by writer Edward-Isaac Dovere says.
“I didn’t think it would be this bad,” he later told donors, the Guardian reported, citing Dovere’s “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Trump.”
“I didn’t think we’d have this racist, sexist pig,” Obama is quoted as saying.
And Obama was set off by reports said that Trump was talking with Vladimir Putin and others without aides on the line while there was an ongoing investigation into Russian election interference, The Guardian said.
“That corrupt motherf–ker!” he said, according to the report.
It’s no shocker that Obama and Trump aren’t each other’s biggest fans — but the former Democratic president’s public comments about his Republican successor haven’t come close to the R-rated descriptions alleged in the book.
