Former US President Barack Obama reportedly called Donald Trump a “corrupt mother-f*****” behind closed doors, according to a new book by Edward-Isaac Dovere, which will be released next week.
Speaking about his successor, Obama allegedly used various curse words to describe Mr. Trump — including calling him a “racist sexist pig” after he was elected.
Although Trump was the preferred choice for Obama in the Republican primary race, which involved Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz, he allegedly labeled him a “racist sexist pig” in front of donors, according to excerpts from the upcoming book, Battle for the Soul.
The book also claims that Obama referred to Donald Trump as a “madman” and told donors that he “didn’t think it would be this bad.”
The comments are not reported to have been made in public but were overheard by insiders at the time.
Obama had allegedly described Trump as a “corrupt motherf*****” after finding out he had an exchange alone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, without any staff.
The incident reportedly happened while an investigation was open into Russian interference in the US elections.
Posting to Twitter on Wednesday, author Dovere teased next week’s book release and told followers that there were more details in his upcoming book, including “depth and reflection” from Obama.
The book also paints a rather negative image of Obama as aloof, negligent with the Democratic party with a big ego who “inadvertently helped usher” in the era of Trump.
Data shows that the eight years of Obama caused the Democrats a massive net loss of 947 state legislative seats, 63 House seats, 11 senators, and 13 governors.
Dovere explained that Obama refused to take any blame and added: “Obama used the party structure as a host for his campaign. In his second term, he cared about what happened to the husk as much as any parasite does. Obama takes no blame for the deterioration of the DNC infrastructure.”
The author revealed that Obama was competing with Trump’s infamous tweets.
He shared: “He loved that he had outperformed any of Trump’s tweets, outperformed every other tweet while worrying that this was the world he had now chosen to inhabit too.”

Speaking about Obama’s aloof personality and unwillingness to help the party grow, the author wrote: “Obama never built a Democratic bench and never cared to, aside from a few scattered candidates who interested him. Defenders like to argue that Obama’s approach to governing was a reflection of his unwillingness to taint his presidency by mucking about in fundraising. Or because he didn’t want to spoil the image that many 2008 voters had had of him as an independent-minded politician who could appeal to independents. Or that if faced with the choice between campaigning and governing, he was always going to opt for governing. They admit now those were excuses.”
The book is expected to give deeper insights into how Barack Obama reacted to the four years while Trump was in office.
It is also alleged that Jill Biden, First Lady of the US, said on a call with supporters that Kamala Harris — now Vice President — should “go f*** [herself]” after she questioned Joe Biden over his history on racial equity and justice.
