The former United States President in his memoir 'A Promised Land' has mentioned Rahul Gandhi and former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. Here's what he has remarked about Rahul Gandhi.
The memoir by the former president is an autobiography which is 'more political than personal', as per NYT's review. The book is reportedly is a harsh self-assessment by Obama of his Presidential era and his life including his first stirring of social awareness in his teenage years. talking about his VP and the current US President-elect Joe Biden, Obama writes, " a decent, honest, loyal man who might get prickly if he thought he wasn’t given his due — a quality that might flare up when dealing with a much younger boss." Obama has authored several other books including 'Dreams from My Father', 'The Audacity of Hope', and 'Change we can Believe in'.
