People keep saying that Trump is doing everything he can to destroy 
Obama’s legacy, but I see it differently. I believe Trump is Obama’s 
legacy. Barack Obama raised a lot of optimistic and idealistic hopes in 
a lot of Americans. For either systemic or personal reasons or a 
combination of both, he was not able to deliver on them or admit that he 
was unable to deliver on them. The resulting disillusionment caused by 
such a profound letdown had a whole lot to do with Trump’s election. 
What we are looking at is a systemic reaction and not just the 
individual quirks of a somewhat bizarre personality.
