英会話ブログ その778       Donald Trump (2)

2016/03/17

Well, this has been pretty much the same story in the United States, though Obama doesn't come from a rich and powerful background.  Because of this, and because of the fact that his father was a black African from Kenya, this has worked against the U.S president, who has tried to serve the average person's interests.

Basically Obama has become what is known in political jargon as a "lame duck",.  "Lame" means, "crippled, unable to walk or move correctly".

Obama has hit a political wall which is comprised of rich, poweful, right-wing, (ultra-conservative, pro-guns, pro-war, pro-Christian, pro-White, pro-Big Business etc.) anti-liberal politicians, the majority belonging to the Repubrican party.

Obama is visibly tired of this and I'm sure he is looking forward to becoming the ex-president of the United States in 2016.

Okay, this now brings us to the main character of this blog, "Donald Trump" !

Do you know who he is ?  Are you aware that he wants to be the next president of America ?  Have you seen him on TV ?
