Washington, Sept 5: President Barack Obama attributes the rise of Dold Trump to his ability to “appeal to a certain group of folks who feel left out” economically and culturally. In an interview to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday, Obama pointed to the country’s “long tradition of inclusion” as well as its historical suspicion of “outsiders”. “Although you’ll see bumps, whether it’s anti-immigrant sentiment directed at the Irish, or Southern Europeans as opposed to Northern Europeans, or the Chinese, or today, Latinos or Muslims, the long-term trend is people get absorbed, people get assimilated, and we benefit from this incredible country in which the measure of your patriotism and how American you are is not the colour of your skin, your last me, your faith, but rather your adherence to a creed, your belief in certain principles and values,” Obama said.
