During Barack Obama’s life and during his tenure as President of the United States, not everything was rosy. Even if the former US president is perceived as one of the best leaders, it remains that he was affected by scandals that our colleagues dreuz.info were kind enough to share with readers on Thursday, November 7, 2017. So here the 10 scandals that affected Barack Obama.
1. Former US President Barack Obama has sued more journalists than all the other presidents before him reunited. Yet Trump is accused of waging war against the free press.
