Former United States President Barack Obama in his memoir ‘A Promised Land’ described Rahul Gandhi as “a student who had done the coursework and was eager to impress the teacher but deep down lacked either the aptitude or the passion to master the subject.”
He has “a nervous, unformed quality about him,” writes Obama in his memoir.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi also appears to find mention in the memoir.
According to a book review by the New York Times, Barack Obama’s new book ‘A Promised Land’ focuses more on his political stance than his personal life. The former US president has written about a range of issues from his own early days in politics to the killing of Osama Bin Laden by a US SEAL team in Pakistan’s Abbottabad.
Rahul Gandhi was the Vice President of the Congress when he had met Obama during his last visit to India in December 2017. Rahul Gandhi had also tweeted about the meeting.
“Had a fruitful chat with President @BarackObama Great to meet him again,” Rahul Gandhi had also posted a photo with Obama.
The New York Times reviewed Obama’s memoir ‘A Promised Land’, the first Black American President has talked about political leaders from around the world.
Obama was the first African-American president of the United States. He visited India twice as the US President – in 2010 and 2015.
