Amid racially charged protests and controversial police altercations, President BarackObama said the United States is less racially divided now than before he took office.
NPR released quote excerpts of an interview set to air on “Morning Edition” starting Monday, including one in which host Steve Inskeep asked if the country is more racially divided now compared to when Obama took office six years ago.
“No,” the president answered. “I actually think that it’s probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided.”
Inskeep also asked the president about working with a Congress where both houses are controlled by Republicans. Obama offered a familiar answer.
